Meaning and history

Radford Highlanders logo history

The current Radford Highlanders logo was introduced in 2016. It is based on the shield shade. In the very center, there is a large stylized letter “R” placed inside a red flag. The lower half of the sword is filled with a geometric pattern in red, blue, and white. The word “Radford” can be seen above the “R.” The letters are red, while the background is white.

The two previous emblems adopted in 1982 and 2008 were utterly different. They featured the letters “RU” paired with the smaller word “Highlanders.”
