The Fighting Hawks gear from UND is about to be released for purchase.

Approximately two month after the University of North Dakota approved an all new logo, the Fighting Hawks merchandise will be available for fans, students, and all consumers. That new logo depicts a white hawk head with black shading and a black eye, resting on the green letters, "ND."

In 2012, UND retired its previous moniker, "Fighting Sioux." The Fighting Hawks was selected by way of vote from alumni, students, and staff. It beat out other nominees such as Roughriders, Nodaks, Sundogs, and North Stars. The Fighting Hawks has been in use since 2015.

The new Fighting Hawks merchandise goes on sale at the UND bookstore at 9 a.m. Saturday. This is the first time the gear will be available to the public.
