Memorial patch to be worn on all athletic jerseys
July 11, 2007
The Virginia Tech Athletics Department announced Wednesday the official patch that will be worn on all Hokie athletics uniforms in the upcoming academic year. Virginia Tech's official tribute ribbon logo remembering the victims of the April 16, 2007 tragedy comes from a student-inspired design. The logo consists of the well-known maroon VT athletic logo that symbolizes the innovative and dynamic nature of Virginia Tech, over an orange ribbon that is recognition of the lives lost on April 16 and a symbol of the victims' prevailing Hokie spirit. The tribute ribbon will appear on athletes' jerseys as an inspiration and celebration of the victims' lives and the unforgettable mark they left on the Virginia Tech community, the nation and the world. Additional tributes will be announced at future dates.
