Meaning and history

UNF Ospreys Logo history


In 1998, the athletic logo of the University of North Florida in Jacksonville featured the bird’s head inside a blue circle with white filling. In 1999, the bird was redrawn and the lettering “UNF Athletics” appeared below it.
In 2010, the UNF Ospreys logo went through another update. The old wordmark was replaced by the words “North” and “Florida” placed above and below the bird respectively. In 2014, the wordmark was revisited. As a result, it grew narrower and moved above the bird. Eventually, it was removed altogether.
