Meaning and history

Virginia Cavaliers Logo history

The history of the Virginia Cavaliers logo design features two completely different emblems, created throughout the years. Though there is still one thing in common between them — an extremely elegant execution.

1978 – 1994

Virginia Cavaliers Logo 1978

The original logo for Virginia Cavaliers was introduced in the Enid the 1970s and featured a stylized portrait of a cavalier, executed in smooth blue lines on a white background. The only bright element of this logo was a curved elongated feather in red, coming out of the right part of the cavalier’s head.

Under the graphical part of the logo, there was a capitalized “Virginia” inscription in a bold blue typeface with smooth lines and slightly elongated and pointed ends of the letters.

It was a beautiful and stylish logo, which stayed with the team for more than 15 years and reflected its noble character and essence.

1994 – Today

Virginia Cavaliers logo

The first and only redesign of the Virginia Cavaliers logo was held in 1994, and this is when the style and composition of the visual identity were changed dramatically. The portrait of the cavalier was removed from the emblem, as well as the logotype. The new structure was composed of a white “V” outlined in orange, placed above two crossed sabers, featuring the same shade of orange.

The new color palette of the Virginia Cavaliers visual identity reflects the energy, motion, and determination, along with the professionalism and responsibility of the athletics team.
