Meaning and history

Kent State Golden Flashes logo history


The eagle on the current logo is highly stylized. In fact, it is just the side view of an eagle’s head on a long neck. The neck looks like a flame or a lightning bolt. There is also a large blue “K” on the forefront, whereas the words “Kent State” can be seen below it.
On the old Kent State Golden Flashes logo (1990), the eagle had not only the head but the body and wings, too.
