Hoyas Wordmark Logo
The Georgetown Hoyas wordmark logo has been a part of the university’s identity for over 100 years. It is one of the oldest and most iconic logos in all of the college sports. The logo design was created by Dr. Joseph Ewan, who was an art professor at Georgetown University from 1903 to 1935, and it has remained largely unchanged since its inception in 1904.
The original design featured a large “G” with two smaller letters flanking it on either side: an “H” for Hoya Saxa (Latin for "what rocks"), which is what students would yell during sporting events; and an “S” representing the school's mascot, Jack the Bulldog. Over time, however, this basic concept underwent several subtle changes to become today's modern version—the blue-and-gray shield featuring a bold G flanked by two stars above it that we know so well today as being synonymous with Georgetown athletics teams across all sports divisions.
Today this classic yet timeless logo stands out amongst other collegiate logos due to its simplicity yet the strong visual impact that conveys both strength and tradition simultaneously - making it instantly recognizable among fans everywhere! Despite nearly 120 years passing since its creation, there are no plans currently to make any major changes or updates anytime soon – proving just how beloved this unique piece of history remains within our community!
