Meaning and history

Murray State Racers Logo history


Since 2000, the Murray State Racers logo has featured a racer with the large yellow “M” on the background. However, in 2014, the emblem went through a modification resulting in a slightly different style.
The racer on the previous version sloped slightly to the right. The “M” was italicized, which created a certain visual harmony with the sloped racer.
On the current Murray State Racers logo, the horse and the racer are straight, as is the “M.” The outline of the letter is now bolder, and there is not only dark blue trim, but white, too. This helps to add some depth. The word “Racers,” which could be seen on the previous version, has disappeared.
