Meaning and history

Morehead State Eagles Logo history


And yet, the memorable design is comparatively new. On the old emblem, which was introduced in 1986, for instance, the beak looks pretty average. Moreover, the eagle itself was not very stylish, although the bird did have an athletic feel due to the prominent chest and determined expression.
The eagle on the Morehead State Eagles logo unveiled in 2005 looked different. You could see the bird’s head with a very impressive beak. The lettering “Morehead State” was positioned above, while the lettering “Eagles” was placed below. Later, the university reduced the primary logo to the eagle’s head only.
