Utah Utes Logo
In the early 2010s, rumors spread that the University of Utah was going to phase out its iconic “Drum and Feathers” logo. Yet, as of 2019, the Utah Utes logo featured on the official website has remained the same.

Meaning and history

Utah Utes Logo history


The University of Utah located in Salt Lake City sponsors 19 varsity teams, including football, basketball, and baseball teams. They are named after the Ute tribe of Native Americans. Taking into consideration this fact, it is only natural that the Utah Utes logo was inspired by the Native American symbolism. Since at least 1972, it has remained almost unchanged, with only two subtle modifications.
