The logo of the university team depicts a red elephant. This image appeared with the light hand of journalist Everett Strupper, who wrote in one of the articles about the match: “Hold on! Elephants are coming!” Since then, they began to be called elephants – powerful, merciless, decisive in their appearances in the sports arena.
Over the years, the university American football team has had several logos. The debut dates back to 1952. It depicts a massive dark raspberry elephant with a beige blanket, on which there is an anagram of the university – “A.”
In 1974, the image of the animal was revised: now it is a more realistic elephant – both in drawing and color. He steps over the crossbar of a single letter “A” with serifs denoting the name of the university. At the bottom of the light curly ribbon posted the inscription “Crimson Tide.”
From 2001 to 2003, inclusive, a massive gray elephant with a formidable expression appeared on the emblem. He stands in an awesome pose and is depicted in full view. The main emphasis is on powerful tusks, as a threat to rivals, and on the red inscription “Alabama.”
In the modern version of the logo is a curly letter “A” in a circle with the name of the team. Company colors – white, dark raspberry, gray, and black.
