Furman University is one of the smallest universities in the NCAA Division I. The university owns twenty teams called Furman Paladins. Teams take part in the Southern Conference, representing many sports: baseball, volleyball, athletics, softball, tennis, diving, swimming, football, golf, cross-country, basketball, sailing, and so on. The Paladins nickname was first mentioned in the 1930s. At first, it was used only in relation to the basketball team. The soccer team was known as the Hurricanes, and the baseball team was known as the Hornets. In 1961, students voted to make the Paladins name common to the entire sports department.

The last two Furman Paladins emblems are a combination of classic concepts and minimalism. The emblems are completely identical and differ only in color: version 1981-2012 dark blue and the version adopted in 2013 is close to purple. Another minor nuance is the font. Both logos show the white letter “F.” But in its original form, its horizontal strokes coincided in length. Now the lower strip is shortened. Also, the “F” became greasy and acquired wide serifs.

As before, the letter is located in the center of the rhombus with the arcuate sides concave inward. The geometric element is surrounded by a white outline and is located inside the second rhombus of the same shape. Due to the sharp ends, the figure resembles a four-pointed star.
