Meaning and history

Maine Black Bears logo history


Taking into consideration the bear name and mascot, it seems only natural that the Maine Black Bears logo sports this scary creature. On the current crest, you can see the head of the bear showing his sharp teeth. On the background, the lettering “Maine” can be seen, which is placed slightly above the bear.
The previous Maine Black Bears logo looked very similar in its structure. The small nuances in the shape of the bear’s head and the typography were different, though.
