Meaning and history

Seton Hall Pirates Logo history

The athletic program representing Seton Hall University in South Orange, New Jersey, includes 14 varsity teams in such sports as football, baseball, basketball, golf, soccer, cross country and more.

If you look at the 1984 logo, you will see a stylized pirate, like on the current emblem. Similar to the modern version, the design is dominated by blue and white. And yet, the pirate here is completely different, while the palette looks by far less sophisticated than now. On the old logo, the pirate was wearing a hat with a wide brim. In his mouth, a saber or knife could be seen. There was the lettering “Seton Hall” below. The blue was very bright.

On the 1998 logo, the pirate and the palette grew more refined and stylish. The lettering was now placed on a banner. In 2009, the lettering disappeared from the primary logo.
