Meaning and history

Yale Bulldogs Logo history


On the current emblem, you can see the side view of a highly stylized head of the bulldog. In the background, there is a large slab serif “Y.”
On the previous logo (1972-1997), the dog was depicted in full height. The creature was leaning over the “Y.” You could clearly see the word “Yale” on the chest.
The emblem used in 1960-1971 showcased the bulldog standing on the four paws and facing to the left. On the 1930-1942 logo, there was only the head to be seen.
