The current Antioch High School logo was created in the early 1970s by John O’Hara as an emblem for the football team’s helmets. Other sports teams soon began using the design, and before long the artwork found its way onto all manner of items as a symbol of the school.
The “A” in the center stands for Antioch (naturally) and the circle surrounding it represents unity of the students and athletes who wear the symbol. The arrow always faces forward, symbolizing the need to move ahead and overcome obstacles. Two feathers below the arrow represent teamwork and working together to achieve success.
Originally the logo used three colors: cardinal, black and white. Gray was added more recently to the arrow and feathers to better incorporate the school’s colors.
The Superfan Stan character debuted in September 2006, both in illustrated form and as a costumed mascot. Pictures of Stan at events can be found on his Facebook page.
Versions of Stan turned slightly to the right or left are available for download on the Downloads tab. Note that the artwork cannot be merely flipped left-to-right, as the word Sequoits on his belt would then be backwards, as would the logos on his chest and left bicep.
