Guardians Primary Logo
The Cleveland Guardians are a professional baseball team that has been around since 2021. They have had many changes to their primary logo throughout the years, but one thing has remained constant: their iconic red “C” with Chief Wahoo as its centerpiece. This logo was introduced in 1948 and is still used today, although it has gone through some minor tweaks over time.
In 2020, the Cleveland Indians announced that they would be changing their primary logo once again for the 2021 season. The new design features an orange circle with a white feather inside of it and two arrows pointing outward from either side of the circle towards four stars above it—representing unity among fans and players alike during these uncertain times brought on by COVID-19 pandemic restrictions.
This change is more than just cosmetic; it also represents a shift in attitude within both organization itself and its fanbase at large who want to see greater respect paid to Native American culture going forward—something which this new design strives to accomplish while still honoring tradition by incorporating elements such as Chief Wahoo into its overall aesthetic appeal. With this latest redesign being unveiled ahead of next year's season opener, we can all look forward to seeing what other exciting changes will come out of Progressive Field in 2021!
The MLB League Teams Logo Battle is an exciting competition between teams to see who has the best logo. Fans of all ages can get involved in the fun by voting for their favorite team's logo and seeing which one will come out on top! With so many great logos to choose from, it'll be a hard-fought battle that will surely entertain Cleveland Guardians Sports fans.
