Meaning and history

New Mexico Lobos logo history


The New Mexico Lobos logo introduced in 1999 featured the side view of a grey wolf. With its mouth open, the creature looked fierce and dynamic. The name of the team in red and white could be seen below.
In 2009, the emblem was updated. Although we can still see the same wolf, it has turned its muzzle forward. While the result looks less dynamic, it shows the aggressiveness in a more obvious way than its predecessor.
