Meaning and history

South Florida Bulls Logo history

The bull theme has been the most obvious inspiration behind the current South Florida Bulls logo. The emblem features stylized horns of a bull. Their shape reminds the letter “U.” The body of the horns is dark green, and you can see white and gold trim.

In 1997-2002, the university used a different emblem where the bull theme was even more prominent. Here, you could see an angled view of the creature’s head in yellow and black. On the background, there was a green and yellow square with black trim. In comparison with the abstract current emblem, the previous one looked realistic.

The older logo (1982-1996) featured only the name of the university in smaller letters paired with the abbreviation “USF” given in larger letters.
