Sport club logos
- The Marketing Office does not provide custom logo creation or completion services. You can either select a design from the Sport Club Identity or create your own.

- Red Dragons illustrations and details as well as the university block C or two-toned C may be used but not distorted.
- Items may be added to illustrations as appropriate.
- The use of university colors (red, white, black) is preferred but not required.
- The word “club” must be present if there is a varsity sports counterpart (e.g. Men’s Soccer).
- SUNY Cortland or Cortland must be used. Note this requirement is waived if the logo is within the Sport Club Identity System.
- You can request a prepared logo from the Sport Club Identity system available through the Marketing Office. The designs below can be quickly created with your club’s name. Please note not all options are listed here. Further variations may be requested through the form.
