Golden Gophers Primary Logo
The Minnesota Golden Gophers' primary logo has a long and storied history. It dates back to the late 1800s when it was first used by the University of Minnesota's athletic teams. The original design featured a gopher wearing an old-style cap and holding a football in its paws. This classic image has been altered slightly over time, but still remains recognizable today as one of college sports' most iconic logos.
The modern version of the logo features an updated look with more vibrant colors and sharper lines than its predecessor had. The current design also includes two stars above the gopher's head that represent both Minneapolis and St Paul, where many games are played each year for this beloved team’s fans to enjoy! Additionally, there is now an outline around these two stars which symbolizes how important they are in representing all parts of Minnesota - from east to west - united together through their shared love for this team!
As time goes on, we can expect that new changes will be made here or there but overall; we know that our beloved Gophers will continue using their classic primary logo for years to come! Its unique shape combined with bright colors makes it easily recognizable amongst other collegiate logos – making sure everyone knows exactly who represents “the Land Of 10 Thousand Lakes”: Our very own Minnesota Golden Gophers!
