Meaning and history

Navy Midshipmen Logo history

1906 – 1969

Navy Midshipmen Logo 1906

In 1942, a much simpler emblem was adopted. It was dominated by a large block “N” in navy blue over the white background. While the letter itself looked totally generic, the star in the top right corner added the visual reference to the Navy and the United States, as stars are among the most important elements of the country’s flag.

This logo is a depiction of their mascot – a white human-like ram, mostly colored white. He’s holding a grey anchor in his hands and wears a dark blue jersey. In its center, there’s a yellow letter ‘N’ and a star nearby, like on the previous designs.

1996 – 2009

This time, they used the same tropes, but made the ram into a more animal-like shape. It was now charging into something out-of-vision, had bright yellow horns and wore a blue cloth on its back. On it, there was also the usual ‘N’ emblem (in yellow), but with two stars.

2009 – 2014
