The Primary Marks include the official Pirates, Word, and Pirate Head marks. The small, italicized text (EAST CAROLINA UNIVERSITY) on the Pirates mark may be deleted for embroidery, print, or when on a purple background. It may also be changed to white, black, or gold. This also applies to the small, italicized text (UNIVERSITY) on the Word mark.
The Pirate Head and Word marks may appear on any color background.
