Meaning and history

Minnesota State Mavericks Logo history


Since 2001, the Minnesota State Mavericks logo has remained unchanged. Most likely, that is because the current logo reflects the core visual symbolism of the team’s brand identity.
The central character of the emblem is a fierce bull with sharp horns. The bull is purple with yellow and black highlights. Above, there is the large word “Mavericks,” which is also given in purple and yellow. On top of the Minnesota State Mavericks logo, there is the name of the university in small black letters. They are hardly legible at smaller sizes.
