Meaning and history

Portland Pilots logo history


While the old Portland Pilots logo was rather intricate, the current one has a more minimalistic and sleeker look.
The emblem used in 1992-2005 featured a ship’s wheel with an anchor inside. Over it, the word “Pilots” was written in an elaborate font imitating handwriting.
In 2006, the school adopted a logo depicting a large “P.” The letters had a soft outline and looked pretty abstract. In 2014, it went through a subtle update.
