The Iowa Hawkeyes in 1979 brought us the most long-standing and brilliantly created logo, as it reflects the character of the teams, represents their main values, and is very memorable and recognizable. The horizontally oriented solid black oval has a stylized modern image of the hawk, placed in profile and facing right. The smooth yellow elements of the bird look elegant and stylish, and its direction stands for moving forward and progressing.
