The ULM WARHAWK
ULM's new mascot design draws upon different strengths that relate to the name "Warhawk" and direct visual references.
The primary Warhawk image is that of the red-shouldered hawk, a fierce bird of prey, indigenous to this area and often seen on ULM's campus. The (War)hawk symbolizes courage, speed, power and vision.
Additionally, the Warhawk identity also relates to the area's aviation history. The lightening bolt is a reference to aviation imagery, similar to that found on WWII aircraft. The Warhawk has local historical connections to the P-40 Warhawk airplane, flown by northeast Louisiana's General Claire Chennault and the Flying Tigers during WWII.
The University has multiple or derivative imagery available with the "Warhawk" identity, not of all which are available for viewing on this site. The additional images all carry out "the look" of the new design but may be applied when necessary to apparel, signage, print and other applications.
