Meaning and history

Western Carolina Catamounts Logo history


On the current emblem, you can see an angled view of the cat’s head. The two colors dominating the picture are purple and a dark shade of gold. There is also a couple of white details.
The previous version (1996-2007) was by far more cluttered. Here, there was the cat’s head with the upper part of the body in yellow. Between the paws, the lettering “Western Carolina” could be seen. The logo used in 1981-1995 showcased a simpler drawing of the cat’s head in gold with purple trim. It was encircled by the name of the university.
