Friars Primary Logo
The Providence Friars' primary logo has been a staple of their identity since the school was founded in 1917. The original logo featured an image of St. Dominic, the patron saint of learning and knowledge, with a cross behind him to signify his faith. Over time, this design evolved slightly as it became more modernized and stylized but still retained its core elements: St. Dominic’s face, the cross behind him, and two books that represent education – one open book for knowledge acquired through study and one closed book for wisdom gained through experience.
Throughout its history from 100 years ago until now in 2021, the Providence Friars have kept their iconic primary logo intact while making subtle changes here or there to keep up with changing times. For example, in 2002 they updated the font used in “Providence College” text from a traditional serif typeface to sans-serif which is more common today. They also introduced different color variations such as blue & white or black & gold depending on what sport is being represented at any given moment.
Today, the classic look of the Providence Friars Primary Logo remains unchanged despite all these little tweaks made throughout its long history. It serves as a reminder that even though things may change over time we can always count on certain traditions staying true no matter what happens around us—and that includes our beloved college teams! Whether you are cheering them on during basketball season or just wearing your pride proudly every day —this timeless symbol will continue to be part of who we are forever!
