Meaning and history

Grambling State Tigers logo history


An anthropomorphized tiger holding a flag in his paw was the centerpiece of the Grambling State Tigers logo that made its debut in 1956.
In 1965, it was replaced by a more minimalistic and abstract logo where a yellow ellipse housed a large black “G.” That was a turning point in the history of the program’s brand identity as a completely new palette was introduced.
In 1997, the Grambling State Tigers logo was slightly tweaked. A thin black trim appeared around the yellow ellipse.
