Lamar Cardinals logo history


On the previous Lamar Cardinals logo (1997-2009), the cardinal bird appeared inside a black ring featuring the words “Lamar” (in yellow) and “University” (in white). The word “Cardinals” in a handwritten type could be seen above the bird.
The 2010 Lamar Cardinals logo is less cluttered – there is only the bird’s head and the name of the university.
