Meaning and history

Purdue Fort Wayne Mastodons logo history


The symbolism behind the Purdue Fort Wayne Mastodons logo is pretty transparent. A stylized mastodon is a perfect match for the name of the athletic program. The animal’s head is placed inside a black shield. The sharp tusks are clearly visible on both the sides.
On the top, the word “Purdue” in large gold letters can be seen. Below, there is the lettering “Fort Wayne” in smaller letters.
