Meaning and history

Western Michigan Broncos Logo history


There is the head and the neck of a wild horse on the current Western Michigan Broncos logo. The head is facing to the left, and there is a lot of dynamism in the way the mane is swaying in the wind. In the background, there is the letter “W.”
The logo used in 1998-2015 featured a totally similar horse paired with the name of the team placed below. On the 1976 logo, there was a prancing horse in front of a large yellow “W.”
