It seems to be the case for UAAP Season 78 host University of the Philippines as the school will now use a different logo during its participation in the league.
U.P. representative and UAAP Season 78 secretary-treasurer, Dean Ronnie Dizer advised ABS-CBN Sports that they will no longer allow the use of the "Oblation" logo anymore for the UAAP coverage. The Oblation is the monument and main symbol of the University of the Philippines system.
U.P. forwarded an entirely new and colorful "Fighting Maroons" logo for UAAP Season 78.
The new "Fighting Maroons" logo has a local warrior holding a shield with Baybayin (the ancient pre-colonial Philippine writing system) characters spelling out "U.P." on one hand and another hand holding a spear.
UAAP Season 78 will start on September 5, 2015.
