Meaning and history

Michigan Wolverines Logo history


The creature featured on the emblem introduced in 1912 was given in blue with red and green trim. Above, the arched lettering “Michigan” could be seen. The next logo (1948) was just the animal’s head, while in 1964, the school returned its whole body to the emblem. The crest used from 1979 to 1987 was the last one to feature the animal.
In 1988, the University of Michigan adopted a typographic emblem. It featured the letter “M” with the word “Michigan” on the forefront until 2011 when the text disappeared from the Michigan Wolverines logo.
