Meaning and history

Monmouth Hawks Logo history


The stylized hawk has been featured on the Monmouth Hawks logo since at least 1993. On the older logo, the bird’s head was shown above the capital “M” given in a vivid shade of blue.
In 2005, the crest was redrawn. Now, the bird had a different mood and was shown in the middle of the game. The shade of blue grew calmer, softer.
In 2014, the emblem went through a complete overhaul. Now, the hawk’s beak is more visible, which makes the emotion depicted on the Monmouth Hawks logo more apparent. The word “Monmouth” in white is written across the bird.
