Here it is – the new logo for the University of North Dakota Fighting Hawks.
The school unveiled the new imaging concept Wednesday morning at a news conference, the first visuals for the nickname that was chosen last winter to replace the maligned – but beloved by some – Fighting Sioux moniker.
UND president Ed Schafer said at the news conference the new logo is "sleek," "elegant," and "totally unique."
He also said apparel with the new image will be available in North Dakota starting Aug. 13.
Schafer and other speakers also emphasized that a name change doesn't mean the school or its values are any different.
During the conference, they showed off a few concepts of what the logo might look like on jerseys – but note these are not final jersey designs. The final jersey design is still being worked on. Here are some screengrabs of the concepts.
