Logo History

Lancaster Jethawks logo history

The 2001 logo shows a jet with a characteristic hawk head and the team’s name with the word “JetHawks” written in a retro style. The jet is flying up in the night sky.

The Lancaster Jethawks’ current look took shape in 2007-2008. Now their team identity features a hawk’s head in brick red color. On the sides there are military-style wings against a navy blue background. The whole thing looks like both a bird with its wings spread and a US Air Force badge. There are five stars above the hawk’s head to symbolize the highest rank. The team’s name is written on the top in an arch. Two crossed bats with a baseball in the center are below. The logo is outlined in silver.

It is obvious that the logo is homage to the rich aerospace traditions of the area.

The current color scheme which comprises navy blue, silver, tan and brick red fits jet theme much better than the previous logo.
