The Fresno State Bulldogs logo traditionally features a bulldog. He stands confidently on four legs and barks, showing sharp teeth. A collar with massive spikes is put on the dog’s neck. On the body – a red T-shirt with a blue letter “F” on the sleeve. In the previous version (1992-2005), the “F” was slightly larger. Now it takes up less space, and the bulldog as a whole has become more compact.
A round white pendant with a green “V” is attached to the collar. She was not there before. Also, the designers changed the color scheme, as a result of which the scarlet turned red-pink, and blue – dark blue.
