Celtics Wordmark Logo
The Boston Celtics are one of the most iconic franchises in all of the sports. Their wordmark logo has been a mainstay since its inception in 1946 and is recognized worldwide as an emblem of basketball excellence. The original design was created by designer Zang Auerbach, who used his signature font to create a bold and unique look for the team's early years. Over time, this classic logo has undergone several iterations but remains true to its roots with its distinctive green color scheme and white lettering style.
The modern version that we know today first appeared during the mid-1980s when it underwent minor changes, such as increasing its size slightly while keeping other elements consistent with previous designs, like using two lines instead of three on either side of "The Celtics." This new look also included adding stars above each letter which were meant to represent championship banners won over time by Boston’s legendary teams from 1957 - something no other NBA franchise had ever done before then!
Today, this same iconic symbol can be seen everywhere, from jerseys worn by players on the court or even printed onto t-shirts sold at stores across America, proving just how much history is embedded within its simple yet powerful design language that continues to inspire generations upon generations both inside & outside basketball culture alike! It stands out not only because it looks great but also because it carries so much meaning behind every stroke – making sure everyone knows exactly who they're dealing with whenever they see those famous four letters: BOSTON CELTICS.
