Meaning and history

Marquette Golden Eagles logo history


The side view of a warrior was the centerpiece of the Marquette Golden Eagles logo developed in 1971. The warrior was given in dark blue and a very dark shade of gold. He was wearing a helmet and had the words “Marquette Warriors” (the old name of the team) arched around him.
When the team was renamed Golden Eagles, the need for a new emblem emerged. The 1994 logo features an eagle in flight. The position of the wings implies he is ready to attack.
Eventually, in 2005, the team decided to make its emblem primarily typographic. The eagle disappeared from the Marquette Golden Eagles logo. Now, you could only see the large interlocking letters “M” and “U” with the word “Marquette” arched on the forefront.
