Meaning and history

Western Kentucky Hilltoppers Logo history


The Western Kentucky Hilltoppers logo showcases a large piece of red cloth, which represents a flag. On the red background, the lettering “WKU” (the university’s initials) can be seen. Also, there is a hand holding the flag.
While the shades and the different size of the glyphs add some depth, you can feel that the abbreviation does not seamlessly merge into the design – the letters seem to pop out.
