Meaning and history

North Carolina State Wolfpack Logo


North Carolina State Wolfpack Logo-1972
The very first logo for North Carolina State Wolfpack was created in 1972 and featured a caricature of a walking wolf wearing a red jersey with an “NCS” monogram in red and white and a red and black cap with the “NC State” lettering written in it in white geometric capitals. It was a fun yet powerful and memorable emblem, which stayed with them for almost three decades.


North Carolina State Wolfpack Logo-2000
The redesign of 2000 kept the red, black, and white color palette, but completely simplified the logo to just a geometric “NCS” monogram, where the small “N” and “C” were placed vertically over the bold enlarged “S”, set on a black background. This emblem looked more modern and confident, evoking a sense of dangerous competition.

2006 – Today

North Carolina State Wolfpack Logo
In 2006 the logo was changed again. And the only change of this year was the color palette of the monogram, as the composition and the contours of the letters remained almost the same. The “N” and “C” got their lines a bit shortened and bold ended, but not very significant. As for the colors — the dark, close to burgundy red shade was replaced by a scarlet tone, looking like a blood red, and evoking a sense of victory and energy.
