Meaning and history

Hofstra Pride logo history


The old Hofstra Pride logo unveiled in 1988 was a white roundel housing a pretty intricate crest. It reminded a medieval coat-of-arms. The 2002 emblem was also based on a roundel. This time, it housed a lion and lioness.
The two animals have remained on the Hofstra Pride logo adopted in 2005. Yet, now, they are depicted in a more abstract manner.
