Virginia Cavaliers Primary Logo
Virginia Cavaliers Primary Logo History
The “V” over two crossed sabers (or V-Sabres) is often used to represent the Virginia football program. The logo first appeared in 1994 as part of the Cavaliers’ new football helmet design. It was designed by head football coach George Welsh’s son, Matthew, who received a bachelor’s degree in studio art from UVa in 1994. This logo has now become the most marketable symbol of Virginia athletics.
