Western Illinois University's athletics logos include the Western Illinois Marine-style logo, Western Illinois sweep, full-body Rocky mascot, Rocky head, and stylized typography. Athletics logos exist as the trademark property of Western Illinois University and the trademark (™) designation must always appear. The Western Illinois Rocky head sweep may be used by departments; however, designs must be approved by University Marketing.

The logos may be printed only in University purple (Pantone 2607), University gold (Pantone 116), and white or in black on non-color pieces. Rocky’s teeth and the whites of his eyes must be white.
