Meaning and history

VMI Keydets Logo history


The VMI Keydets logo may seem pretty intricate, at first glance. The moment you have a closer look, though, you see it can be broken down into the three letters: “V,” “M,” and “I” (the initials of the name of the institute). The “V” glyph comes in yellow; the “M” comes in red, while the “I” is white. All of the letters have black trim. The glyphs are interlaced in a very unusual style, due to which the monogram looks memorable and recognizable.
