For the thirty years in Baltimore, the Colts logos were creative in design. Their first logo in 1953 has a goal post, which is not in many logos. The second logo with the bucking colt wearing a Colts helmet is again creative. The final logo from 1979 still stands today as the Colts logo, as the horseshoe is a classic.
1979 - 1983
The first horseshoe logo appeared in 1979. The logo is a blue horseshoe with seven small white holes.
1961 - 1978
Classic Colts logo, which goes all the way back to the AAFC days, was retired in 1978. A blue buck-in bronco holding a football with the classic “horseshoe” football helmet.
1953 - 1960
The new Colts logo in 1953 featured the wordmark “BALTIMORE COLTS” in grey with a blue border and a blue buck-in bronco holding a football with a football helmet, flying over a goal post.
