Mountain West Conference Logo

Mountain West Conference Logo

While the two old logos of the Mountain West Conference were inspired by the “Mountain” theme, the current one is more elaborate and goes beyond the first symbol that comes to mind.

Meaning and history

Mountain West Conference Logo history

The original Mountain West Conference logo (1999) featured the name of the conference paired with a snowcapped mountain above. In the following version (2005), the word “Conference” disappeared, while the word “West” grew larger. The shade of purple became slightly darker.

The current emblem, which was adopted in 2011, dropped the mountain design altogether. Now, there is a 3D cube with the letter “M” on one side and the “W” on the other. The two letters look like a mirror reflection of each other.
