Meaning and history

Jacksonville Dolphins Logo history


A large yellow dolphin was the central character of the old logo introduced in 1995. It was jumping between the large letters “J” and “U.” The way the animal was moving through the glyphs was somewhat unnatural. The drawback was corrected in the following version, which was adopted just a year later. Here, the letters were larger, the dolphin was gray, while the way it was jumping looked a bit more natural.
In 2018, the Jacksonville Dolphins logo was redrawn. Under the letters “J” and “U,” there was the arched word “Jacksonville” in green. Instead of the dolphin, a white shape looking like its fin could be seen.
