Meaning and history

Michigan State Spartans Logo history


The Michigan State Spartans logo has been incredibly consistent at least throughout the last four decades. The emblem used currently is the same one that was introduced back in 1977. Its main and only element is a stylized Spartan helmet. We can see only the side view of the helmet, with the emphasized eye hole and the decorative top of the helmet.
The palette of the Michigan State Spartans logo comprises only two colors: dark green for the helmet and white for the background.
