Meaning and history

Southern California Trojans Logo history

1976 – 1983

Southern California Trojans Logo 1976

The name Trojans conjure up Ancient Greece and its legendary wars. So it is hardly a surprise the Southern California Trojans logo could play with this theme. And yet, while it was prominent on the old emblem, the current one is neutral in this respect.

1983 – 1993

Southern California Trojans Logo 1983
The 1983 logo was styled more like Olympic rings. There was the acronym ‘USC’, written in orange letters with red rims, except the bottom half of ‘S’ was extended into a circle. Other than that, it was a normal wordmark.

1993 – 2001

Southern California Trojans Logo 1993
The old signature featured the head of a warrior wearing a helmet and headdress. On the current USC Trojans logo, which was introduced in 1993, there are only the interlocking letters “S” and “C.”

2001 – 2016

They kept the previous lettering, but added a word ‘Trojans’ right above. The font was a cursive, hand-written style with the same color scheme.

2016 – Today
