Angels Primary Logo
The Anaheim Angels are an American professional baseball team based in Anaheim, California. The franchise has a long and storied history, including its iconic primary logo. Since the team’s inception in 1961 as the Los Angeles Angels of the Pacific Coast League (PCL), its primary logo has gone through several iterations over time.
The original Los Angeles Angel's PCL primary logo featured a red halo above an angel holding a bat with wings spread out behind him on either side of his body. This design was used from 1961-1964 before being replaced by another more modern look featuring two angels facing each other with bats crossed behind them and “Los Angeles” written across it all in white lettering against a black background for the 1965-1996 season when they were renamed to become 'Anaheim Angels'.
This version remained until 1997 when current owner Arte Moreno changed the name back to "Los Angeles" but kept the same basic design intact except for replacing the word "Anaheim" with "LA". In 2004 however, this entire concept was scrapped altogether and a new one was introduced which is still used today: A bright red halo encircling interlocking letters “A” & “A” standing for Anaheim/Angeles along with script writing underneath saying 'Angels Baseball' - making it easily recognizable even among casual fans who may not know much about the franchise itself or its history!

2002 - 2004
Disney changed the Angels’s logo back to a “Big A” in red with white trim and a silver halo, over a dark blue baseball diamond with white, silver and red trim. On top arching over the diamond is the wordmark “ANAHEIM ANGELS.”
1997 - 2001
The first logo under Disney removed the halo and had a rather cartoon like “ANGELS” script with a wing on the “A” over a periwinkle plate and crossed bats. Also, a wordmark “ANAHEIM” in white on top. This logo comes right from the Disney movie “Angels in the Outfield.”
