Mavericks Primary Logo
The University of Texas at Arlington Mavericks have a long history with their primary logo. The first iteration of the logo was designed in 1972 and featured an interlocking “UTA” along with a longhorn steer head inside the letter U. This design was used until 1997 when it was replaced by a more modern look featuring three stars, representing courage, honor, and loyalty—the core values of UT Arlington Athletics.
In 2008, the university unveiled its current primary logo which features two M's overlapping each other to form an X shape within an orange circle on top of a blue background. This new visual identity is meant to represent speed and power as well as strength in unity for all Maverick teams across all sports programs at UT Arlington. Additionally, this updated mark has become synonymous with success since its introduction due to many NCAA tournament appearances from various teams including baseball (2009), softball (2010), and men's basketball (2014-2016).
Finally, in 2018, the school released yet another update that made minor changes such as removing some lines from around the outside edge while keeping much else intact. This version also added "NCAA" underneath symbolizing that they are now officially partaking in Division I athletics competing against some of toughest opponents nationwide. As such these updates have further solidified UTA Mavericks' place among college athletics elite making them one team everyone should keep an eye out for during upcoming seasons!
