Meaning and history

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets logo history


We will start the story of the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets logo from the one introduced in 1964. You could see a white “T” with a black trim and a pretty realistic black-and-white bee on the forefront. On the 1969 logo, the bee was colored yellow and black, while the “T” was removed.
In 1978, the bee was redrawn and placed on top of the lettering “Georgia Tech” in a slab serif font. In this form, the emblem existed until 1991, when the current Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets logo was introduced. Here, the bee is in flight, which helps to create a dynamic feel in comparison with the previous version. To the left, the letters “GT” can be seen.
