The Browns are the only National Football League team without a helmet logo. The logo-less helmet serves as the Browns' official logo. But overall, the orange, logo-less helmet continues to remain as the primary trademark of the Cleveland Browns.

The team has had various promotional logos throughout the years, such as the “Brownie Elf” mascot or a Brown “B” in a white football. While Art Modell did away with the Brownie Elf in the mid-1960s, believing it to be too childish, its use has been revived under the current ownership.
