LBCC Rolls Out New
For the first time in Long Beach City College history, a new athletic logo was unveiled depicting the College’s Viking mascot.
“We are extremely excited and proud to introduce our new athletic logo to the community,” said LBCC Superintendent-President Dr. Reagan F. Romali. “The new athletic Viking logo builds on the original mascot that has been with us since 1927. The new Viking logo includes features that make it uniquely Long Beach City College.”
The new LBCC athletic logo shows a black outline side profile of a Viking wearing a helmet accented with red. The Viking’s face is gray to reflect LBCC’s pride and belief that diversity is a great strength. The College’s school colors of black, white and red are used throughout the logo. The Viking’s mantle was inspired by ocean waves and a palm tree frond.
“This is a strong mascot that reflects LBCC’s history and pride,” said LBCC Athletic Director Randy Totorp, who originally commissioned the logo. “We have a top-notch Athletic program here at LBCC, and we are so happy to have this amazing logo that we can feature on all of our athletic uniforms.”
Long Beach City College’s Public Affairs and Marketing department designed the new logo with feedback from LBCC students, faculty, staff and management.
This athletic logo will not replace the current LBCC logo, which was introduced in 2008.
For more than 90 years, athletics has been a source of great pride at LBCC. Long Beach City College has earned 92 state championships, more than any other community college in California.
