Meaning and history

Mississippi Rebels Logo history


The Mississippi Rebels logo looks pretty unusual for an athletic crest and has a pronounced retro style. This is especially true for the old logo used in 1970-1996. Here, you could see an old man wearing a long mustache and a red had with wide brims. The words “Ole Miss” in a typeface imitating handwriting could be seen to the left.
The 1996 emblem has borrowed the lettering from the previous Ole Miss Rebels logo but positioned the two words in a single line.
