Meaning and history

Florida A&M Rattlers logo history


The Florida A&M Rattlers logo used in 2000-2012 depicted a stylized rattle snake. You could see the full body of the creature. The position of the head showed it was going to attack. There was the lettering “FAMU” arched above.
In 2013, the team opted for a more minimalistic yet expressive emblem. You could see only the snake’s head, and due to this, its scary expression became more visible. Even the text disappeared leaving the sharp fangs in the spotlight.
