Orioles Wordmark Logo
The Baltimore Orioles are a professional baseball team that has been playing in Major League Baseball since 1901. The team is based in Baltimore, Maryland and its name originates from the state bird of Maryland. Throughout its history, the Orioles have had several logos and wordmarks used to represent them on various merchandise and apparel items. One of the most recognizable logos belonging to this franchise is their current logo featuring an orange-and-black cartoon Oriole perched atop a white “B” with “Baltimore” written underneath it.
This particular logo was adopted by the Orioles organization in 1989 when they moved away from previous designs which featured more realistic depictions of birds or symbols related to baseballs such as bats or balls within an ornate circle surrounding text reading either "Orioles" or "Baltimore." This change was made due largely to feedback received during focus groups conducted prior to selecting a new design; fans wanted something simple yet distinctively unique for their beloved ball club's official mark moving forward into modern times.
Today, this iconic symbol can be seen everywhere throughout Charm City – from Camden Yards (the home ballpark for Baltimore) all across town adorning t-shirts worn proudly by locals who support one of America's oldest franchises still standing today after over 120 years! It continues being recognized around MLB stadiums nationwide proving that even though other teams may come & go - no one will ever forget about these legendary Birds Of Prey!
