The Angels logo has changed quite a bit, sometimes dramatically, since the 1960s. The Angels have gone thru 10 different logos over the 50 some years. This logo is strong and stands tall with a simple halo at the top.
2005 - Present
In 2005, the Angels simplified the logo by removing the background diamond and the wordmarks. The “Big A” font changed to a font that is similar to Bruce Double Pica with a two toned red and a thick blue trim. The halo at the top is silver with a blue background.
2002 - 2004
Disney changed the Angels’s logo back to a “Big A” in red with white trim and a silver halo, over a dark blue baseball diamond with white, silver and red trim. On top arching over the diamond is the wordmark “ANAHEIM ANGELS.”
1997 - 2001
The first logo under Disney removed the halo and had a rather cartoon like “ANGELS” script with a wing on the “A” over a periwinkle plate and crossed bats. Also, a wordmark “ANAHEIM” in white on top. This logo comes right from the Disney movie “Angels in the Outfield.”
1995 - 1996
The blue circle with silver trim was removed and the interlocking “CA” was enlarged. The “CA” is red with a white and blue outline.
1993 - 1994
After the “Big A” was removed from the parking lot in 1992, the Angels returned to their roots and re-adopted the interlocking “CA” logo with some differences. The Angels used the “CA” on against the traditional blue background circle with silver outline. The “A” has a silver halo on top. Designed with Major League Baseball Properties, the logo is similar to one the Angels had from 1965 – 1970.
1986 - 1992
In 1986, the Angels adopted the “Big A” a red letter with blue trim and a yellow halo around the “A.” The “A” is on top of a white baseball with red seams and a blue shadow of California in the background. A yellow star indicating the location of Anaheim.
1973 - 1985
In 1973 the Angels did some slight changes to the logo from 1971. The “A” in the scripted wordmark “angels” was lower-case and was changed to an upper case “Angels.” The star that indicated the location of Anaheim is now red and not yellow.
1971 - 1972
In 1971, the Angels adopted a logo that had the wordmark “angels” written diagonally on an outline of the State of California. A yellow halo hung around the top right corner of the state and a yellow star indicated the city of Anaheim.
1965 - 1970
The first California Angels logo was very similar to the previous “LA” logo. The only difference was instead of an interlocking “LA” letters, there was an interlocking “CA” letters.
1961 - 1964
The Angels first logo depict a white with red seams baseball with wings and a halo over a light green baseball diamond with letter link “L” and “A” over it.
