The University of Virginia athletic department unveiled its new logos in a series of tweets on Friday. 

The tweet included the updated V-Sabre mark and two new secondary designs along with a brief description of each design and meaning.

The team also shared a video that documented the process of creating the designs with Nike. 

The video featured UVA's Director of Athletics Carla Williams, who shared her thoughts on the new designs.

"We believe this new artwork really captures the competitive spirit of Virginia athletics," Williams said. "It is especially important that we do this now so that when we return to competition we have a fresh, new, bold mark to be able to share and express who we are as Virginia Cavaliers." 

Bronco Mendenhall, head coach of the UVA football team, also spoke in the video about the potential impact of the new logos. 

"My hope for the new mark is that it becomes a magnum for the most powerful, vibrant, and brilliant young people on the planet," Mendenhall said. "And that it gives them a place to be drawn to."
