Bulls Primary Logo
The Chicago Bulls' primary logo has been a source of pride for the city and its fans since 1966. The iconic design features a red bull's head with two white horns set against a black background, surrounded by an orange circle. This logo has become synonymous with success and is one of the most recognizable logos in all of the sports.
The original version was created in 1966 when the team changed their name from “Chicago Zephyrs” to “Chicago Bulls” after moving from Baltimore to Chicago that year. It featured an aggressive-looking bull inside an orange circle, which was meant to represent strength and courage—two qualities associated with bulls throughout history. Since then, there have been several variations on this classic design but none as popular or well-known as the original version used today by both players and fans alike across many generations.
Over time, minor changes were made such as switching out certain colors or adding more details like stars around it; however, these subtle adjustments never took away from its core identity—a fierce animal ready for battle! Today it remains one of professional basketball's most iconic logos because no matter what decade you look at it still looks just as strong now as when first designed over 50 years ago - truly timeless!
