Browns Primary Logo
The Cleveland Browns have a long and storied history, and their primary logo has been an integral part of that. The original Cleveland Browns logo was designed in 1946 by the team’s co-founder, Arthur B. McBride. It featured an orange helmet with a white “CB” in the center, which stood for “Cleveland Browns”. This design remained unchanged until 1965 when it was slightly modified to include brown stripes on either side of the helmet as well as two small footballs at either end of the CB lettering.
In 1974, another major change came to Cleveland Brown's primary logo when they decided to replace their classic "CB" with an orange-brown bulldog wearing a football helmet with three stripes running down its face representing strength and determination—a fitting symbol for one of the professional sports' most beloved teams! This design stayed intact until 1995 when it underwent yet another slight alteration; this time around adding more detail such as shading on both sides of its face along with two stars underneath each eye – representing victory over adversity – before finally settling into what is now known today as The Dawg Pound Logo which still remains popular among fans across all generations even today!
Overall throughout its long history spanning nearly 75 years now since inception back in 1946 till present day 2021 - The Primary Logo used by Cleveland Brown Football Team has undergone several minor tweaks & changes but always kept true to its core identity & symbolism while also evolving alongside changing times & trends - making sure that no matter how much things may change or stay same - there will always be something familiar about these iconic logos that we can recognize instantly whenever we see them whether at home or away games alike!

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.

The original “Brownie Elf” logo is credited to Dick Dugan, who became the sports cartoonist for the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
