Meaning and history

South Carolina Gamecocks Logo history


The South Carolina Gamecocks logo features a large “C” with a fighting rooster inside. The bird’s feathers flutter in the wind, and the very position of its body shows it is in the middle of a fight. So, we can say that the logo almost literally represents the name of the team.
The palette is comprised of dark red (garnet) and black. Both the colors can be seen on the emblem where they are featured together with white.
In addition to the crest described above, the teams also have several alternative ones. Probably the most known of them depicts the same fighting rooster. This time, it appears solo, without the block “C.”
Also, the university has monogram logos in which the letters “S” and “C” are interlaced in an intricate fashion. Here, the glyphs look very refined and elegant. They have unusual ends. In addition to it, there is a simpler and more sporty-looking monogram showcasing the interlocked “U,” “S,” and “C.”
