Meaning and history

St. Joseph’s Hawks Logo history

Since 1977, a red hawk has been the only character of the St. Joseph’s Hawks logo. On the old logo, it had a rather cartoonish look. While it was supposed to represent a player, in fact, it looked more like a dancer. There was something funny about him, which was not a good thing for a sports logo.

The 2001 version looks by far more refined and fierce. This time, the creature is given in a darker shade of red with white black and grey nuances.
