The redesign of 1995 has introduced something new — a roundel in two shades of blue and white. It was a circle with a white image of a bulldog, drawn in profile facing to the right, and decorated with several white horizontal lines, coming out of it to the left, and creating a sense of speed and motion. The framing of the medallion boasted a white lightweight “Yale Bulldogs” inscription in the uppercase of an extended modern sans-serif font.
