Meaning and history

Norfolk State Spartans Logo


The Norfolk State Spartans logo features the heads of two Spartans (apparently male and female) wearing gold and green helmets. The heads are facing to the right. They are encircled with the words “Norfolk State University” (arched on the top) and “Spartans” (arched below). The lettering is given in a traditional serif type, and you can feel a subtle legibility issue at smaller sizes.
