Meaning and history

UMBC Retrievers Logo history

The primary UMBC Retrievers logo features a dog that belongs to the breed known as the Chesapeake Bay Retriever. Above the dog’s head, you can see an arched “UMBC” lettering.

While the structure of the previous logo was totally the same (the retriever and the arched “UMBC”), the emblem looked differently. To begin with, the color scheme was different. On the old logo, the letters were gold, while the dog was black with gold highlights. On the current emblem, the dog is brown with black highlights, while the letters are white.

Also, the retriever on the current UMBC Retrievers logo is facing to the left, while his predecessor was facing to the right.
