Meaning and history

Howard Bison Logo history


A large dark blue bison was the centerpiece of the old Howard Bison logo adopted in 2002. The creature was moving to the right and had an elongate red shape over its body.
In 2015, the team adopted a new logo. Due to the fact it depicted only the bison’s muzzle, the updated Howard Bison logo became more emotional.
