*1 The Merchant Marine Academy began using an American flag logo on the left side of the team's football helmets in 1981 and has used it ever since (the logo was modified slightly in 2014), but a series of different logos have been worn on the right side during the same time period; below are representations of these. Since 2006 the flag logo has been worn on both sides during most games; in 2005, the right side was apparently "blank", judging from the small number of available photographs.

The above are all of the "known" helmet designs used by SRU, which played its first season of football in 1993. The dates of use are uncertain for the period 1996 - 1999, but the first design shown above was apparently used through at least 1996, and the third design by at least 1999. A club or JV-level team played in 1992 and used the first design shown above.

*1 The 2014-2015 helmet design used the "SR" logo only on the left side; gray uniform numerals were worn on the right side (as represented below).
