Blue and gold are the official colors of Coppin State University. Though the saturation of these colors has evolved over time, the meaning of each color has remained the same.
Exhibiting an inner sense of security and confidence, blue is a color of trust, responsibility, honesty and loyalty. Blue doesn’t like to make a fuss or draw attention, and above all seeks peace and tranquility. Complementing the characteristics of blue, gold is the color of success, achievement and triumph. Optimistic and positive, gold is the color associated with higher ideals, wisdom, understanding and enlightenment.
Paired with the proud blue and gold is Coppin’s mascot: the majestic eagle. Representing courage, nobility and strength, it’s as fitting for today’s Coppin student body as it was over 100 years ago.
