FIU Panthers Logo

FIU Panthers Logo

The FIU Panthers logo introduced in 1994 featured a bright yellow panther over the lettering “Golden Panthers” given in a sharp-angled, dynamic type. While this emblem radiated pure fury, the following one (2001) was somewhat calmer, although it preserved the aggressive mood of its predecessor.

Meaning and history
