Bengals Alternate Logo
The Cincinnati Bengals have had a long and storied history with their logo, which has undergone many changes over the years. The first iteration of the team's logo was created in 1968 when they were founded as an expansion franchise. This original design featured a tiger head surrounded by stripes and stars, representing the city’s colors of black and orange. It was used until 1981 when it underwent its first significant redesign to become more modernized for its time period.
In 1997, another redesign occurred that saw the tiger head being replaced by an orange-colored Bengal Tiger leaping across a white background with black lettering around it reading “Cincinnati Bengals” in all caps font style along with two yellow stars on either side of it representing Ohio state flag colors; this version is still used today, but there have been minor tweaks made since then such as changing from block letters to italicized ones or adding additional details like shading effects or outlining some aspects within the graphic itself.
Finally, in 2004 an alternate logo was introduced featuring just one large star instead of two smaller ones found on the primary mark; this new symbol also features updated graphics, including bolder lines & curves plus brighter shades for each color element making up the whole image overall thus giving off more substantial visual impact than before while keeping same basic concept intact at the same time – something that fans can easily recognize even if they aren't familiar enough with team’s entire history yet! Overall, these changes throughout decades make Cincinnati Bengals logos so unique & recognizable among other professional sports franchises today!
