Kings Primary Logo
The Kansas City Kings have a long and storied history. Their primary logo has been around since the franchise was founded in 1972, making it one of the oldest logos in professional sports. The logo features a crowned lion, which symbolizes strength and courage as well as being representative of royalty. The lion is standing on an orange basketball with its paw resting on top of a blue shield that reads “KCK” for Kansas City Kings underneath it.
The original version featured only two colors: white and gold to represent power and wealth respectively; however, over time other colors were added including black to represent nobility, red for passion/energy/spirituality/strength, and purple representing creativity & imagination. This new color scheme helped give the team more visibility while also helping them stand out from other teams at the same time.
Today's version still retains many elements from its original design but has been tweaked slightly over time to reflect current trends in graphic design technology such as vector graphics or 3D effects which help make this classic logo look modern yet timeless all at once! It remains one of the most recognizable logos in all professional sports today due largely to its iconic status among fans throughout generations past present & future alike who continue to show their support by proudly wearing gear featuring this beloved emblem!
