Fairleigh Dickinson Knights Logo
The Fairleigh Dickinson Knights logo has always remained loyal to the chess theme. The “knight” here is not a man in armor but a piece in the game of chess.

Meaning and history

Fairleigh Dickinson Knights logo history


The knight on the emblem introduced in 1996 was given in dark blue with white highlights. As the game of chess suggests, the knight is represented by a horse’s head and neck. Below, the word “Knights” is given in red.
In 2004, the Fairleigh Dickinson Knights logo went through a subtle modification. The blue has gone slightly paler, and the lettering “Fairleigh Dickinson” appeared above the knight’s head.
