Northwestern State Demons Logo

Northwestern State Demons Logo
While the “demon” theme used to be very pronounced in the earlier versions of the Northwestern State Demons logo, the school has eventually left only a couple of subtle hints. This has made the emblem more socially acceptable.

Meaning and history

Northwestern State Demons Logo history


The logo developed for the athletic program of Northwestern State University in 1979 featured the head of a demon facing forward. In 2000, the demon theme grew slightly less apparent. The updated emblem depicted a burning trident over the map of Louisiana. The same approach, with subtle alterations, was used on the 2008 logo.
Eventually, in 2014, the current typographic logo was adopted.
