Vanderbilt Commodores Logo

Mascot Logo (2012-2022)

What is this Vanderbilt Commodores Logo?

Upper body mascot logo of a commodore with the Star V logo on its hat in gold, black, and gray. Vanderbilt`s intercollegiate athletics teams are nicknamed the Commodores, in honor of the nickname given to Cornelius Vanderbilt, who made his fortune in shipping. Since the term was used most during the late nineteenth century—and because it was then that Cornelius received his nickname—Vanderbilt`s mascot is always portrayed as a naval officer from the 1880s, complete with chops, cutlass, and nineteenth-century naval regalia.
