The three-colored Jayhawk in KU blue (PMS 293), crimson (PMS 186), and yellow (PMS 116) is preferred.
It may also be printed in one-color black or KU blue (PMS 293). When used on a dark background, the Jayhawk should have a white outline to provide contrast. In any one-color application, the body should always be dark.
The grayscale Jayhawk is acceptable only for high-quality print reproduction.
