The UMass Lowell River Hawks badge, introduced in 1997, has stayed with the program for almost ten years.

The badge of the Umass Lowell River Hawks, created in 2006, featured a bright and modern combination of a stylized logotype and a fancy ornate image of a hawk in red, blue, white, and light gray. The bush was drawn on a background with caricature waves, which became an interesting prolongation of the wings. As for the inscription, it was set in two levels — with the “Umass Lowell” in white and gray bold sans-serif, and a slightly diagonal and arched “River Hawks” in blue and red.
