Meaning and history

Longwood Lancers logo history


The earlier Longwood Lancers logo adopted in 2001 was different, though. Due to the knight, it had something old-fashioned about it.
The retro effect disappeared on the 2007 emblem. Here, the head of a horse was the centerpiece. When the team updated the Longwood Lancers logo in 2014, they preserved the horse’s head but modified the lettering making “Longwood” the most prominent word.
