Falcons Primary Logo
The Detroit Falcons are a professional basketball team based in Detroit, Michigan. They have been part of the NBA since their inaugural season in 1948-49. Throughout its history, the team has used several different logos to represent them on and off the court.
The first logo for the Detroit Falcons was designed by artist Robert Lado and featured an orange falcon with wings outstretched inside a blue circle outlined with white stars. This design was used from 1948 until 1951 when it was replaced by another version featuring two red falcons facing each other inside a yellow shield with black trimming around it. This logo remained unchanged until 1957 when they added three stars above it to signify that they were now part of the National Basketball Association (NBA).
In 1965, after eight years of using this logo, they changed up their look once again by introducing an updated version which included two silver/gray falcons flying towards one another within an orange circle containing four interlocking rings representing unity among players and fans alike as well as symbolizing strength through cooperation between all members of society involved in basketball at any level or capacity – coaches, administrators and referees included! The current primary logo for The Detroit Falcons is still this same design but instead features black outlines around both birds while also adding some shading effects behind them making it appear more dynamic than its predecessor had been before being retired back then almost fifty-five years ago now!
