Rockets Alternate Logo
The Denver Rockets' alternate logo history is an interesting one, full of unique designs and memorable moments. The team has gone through several iterations over the years, with each logo reflecting a different aspect of the city’s culture or identity.
The first iteration was used from 1967-1968 and featured a yellow rocket ship with “ROCKETS” written in blue lettering above it. This design was meant to represent the team’s connection to space exploration as well as its ambition for greatness on the court. In 1969, they changed their look slightly by adding red stars around their nameplate and making minor modifications to some of their lettering styles; this version would stay until 1975 when they changed again into what many consider today's classic look: an orange basketball emblazoned with white “DENVER ROCKETS" text across it in a bold font style that gave off an intimidating yet playful vibe at once—a perfect representation for a competitive sports franchise like theirs!
In 1987, after going through a few changes (including one featuring two crossed arrows), Denver finally settled on its current logo which features both elements from previous logos combined together: A navy blue basketball outlined in silver along with red stars above it spelling out "Denver Rockets." This modern take on traditional symbols conveys strength while still paying homage to past successes - something that all teams should strive towards!
