Meaning and history

Villanova Wildcats Logo history


While the older Villanova Wildcats logo was based on the cat theme, the current one has phased it out completely.
The emblem introduced in 1968 featured a wild cat walking through a large blue “V.” The letter housed the word “Villanova” in white. In 1996, the logo went through a complete overhaul. Although the cat remained the main character, it was depicted in a different way. Now, you could see only the animal’s head and paws with the dark red “V” in the background.
The current Villanova Wildcats logo, which was adopted in 2004, is nothing but a capital “V” in two shades of blue with white trim.
