DURHAM, N.H. (AP) — The University of New Hampshire has a new logo — a blue and white shield featuring the letters ‘‘NH.’’
The design was unveiled Saturday night during a men’s hockey game. It features a blue ‘‘N'’ against a white background and a white ‘‘H'’ against blue. Those are the school colors, and are meant to represent the state’s blue water and white snow.
University officials faced criticism last spring when the design firm Chermayeff Geismar & Haviv presented three other possible logos. The new design, created by the same company, was chosen by an advisory panel of students, alumni, faculty and staff.
The new logo does not affect the official university seal or the wildcat symbol used for athletic teams.
