Meaning and history

Liberty Flames Logo history


The old logo introduced in 1988 featured brighter shades of blue and red. Similar to the current logo, it sported a stylized bird. However, it looked by far more abstract in comparison with the current one. In fact, it was just an outline. The lettering, vice versa, was longer and included the words “Liberty University.”
The following emblem, which was adopted in 2004, looked more professional. It was not just an abstract bird but had style and character (which was very aggressive and determined). The bird was white with a red outline, while the lettering “Liberty Flames” was given in blue.
Eventually, in 2013, the team upgraded their emblem once again.
While the shape of the bird has been apparently inspired by that of the 2004 logo, it now looked more refined. The designer has replaced the red elements by dark blue and added some grey. Due to the contrast between red and grey, the design has got some dimension.
Also, the bird on the previous emblem is broader in comparison with the current Liberty Flames logo. The longer lettering was replaced by just the initials: “L” and “U.” The glyphs were red with white strokes and the blue outline.
