Bruins Primary Logo
The Belmont Bruins have a long and storied history, dating back to the school's founding in 1890. Throughout that time, the university has seen many changes to its primary logo. This article will take a look at some of those logos and their place in Belmont’s history.
The first official logo for the Belmont Bruins was introduced in 1950 when it featured an image of a Bruin Bear on a shield with “Belmont University” written underneath it. The bear was chosen as part of an effort by then-president Dr. William Crenshaw to create an identity for the school which would be easily recognizable across all sports teams and activities associated with the Belmont University athletics program. This design remained largely unchanged until 1994 when minor modifications were made such as changing “University” to “U" within "Belmont U".
In 2009 another major change occurred when they changed from using just one color scheme (blue/white) into two different ones depending on where you saw them: blue/gold or red/black). Additionally, this version also included more details such as shading around edges plus adding stars inside the circle surrounding the Bruin Bear head symbolizing six NCAA Division I championships won by various teams during that time period. Finally, 2013 brought about yet another transformation that kept the same basic elements but added more modernized features like bolder fonts plus brighter colors making the overall design much sharper looking than before.
Today we see the latest incarnation being used across campus including athletic uniforms, banners, merchandise, etc… It is clear there has been a lot of evolution over years since the initial introduction however one thing stayed constant throughout – iconic imagery of Bruin Bear representing spirit strength pride synonymous with what makes up whole institution itself!
