Meaning and history

Old Dominion Monarchs Logo history


The Old Dominion Monarchs logo has remained consistent in the “royal” theme since at least 1983. Back then, the university introduced an emblem featuring an abstract lion’s head wearing a crown.
In 2003, a more realistic depiction of a crowned lion was developed for the logo. The palette was updated, too – it now featured a nobler shade of blue paired with muted gold.
We should also mention the version of the emblem featuring a crown over the letters “ODU.”
