Meaning and history

NC Wilmington Seahawks logo history

Back in 1977, the athletic teams representing UNC Wilmington in Wilmington unveiled a logo depicting a hawk in flight. The bird was white with dark green trim.

In 1986, a completely new emblem was introduced. Now, there was an anthropomorphized hawk wearing the player’s kit. It looked pretty cartoonish, we should add.

In 1992, the cartoonish hawk player was replaced by an abstract bird facing to the left. On the current emblem, which was adopted in 2015, the hawk is also rather abstract. This time, the bird is facing forward.
