Logo 1982-2004 – This is a combination of a green star with a yellow ribbon and the inscription “George Mason.” The five-pointed geometric figure is located in the upper left corner. Two wide curved lines go from it, which are interrupted in the middle. Uneven displacement creates a motion effect. The name of the sports teams is below and is made in thin letters with serifs.
The emblem presented in 2005 differs significantly from the previous one. It also has a star on it, but this time it is painted in two colors at once – black and orange. Because of this combination of shades, the geometric figure seems three-dimensional, because the rays are divided into two contrasting parts. A wide white-green zigzag with an orange outline stretches from the star. Two plates occupy the bottom half of the logo with the words “Mason” and “Patriots.”
