Raiders Primary Logo
The Los Angeles Raiders primary logo has a long and storied history. It first appeared in 1960 when the team was founded as part of the American Football League (AFL). The original logo featured an interlocking “LA” on a black background, which symbolized strength and unity for the newly formed franchise. This iconic design would remain unchanged until 1964, when it underwent its first major redesign to feature two crossed swords behind an updated version of the “LA” emblem.
In 1976, another update was made to reflect changes that had taken place within the organization over time; this included removing one sword from behind the LA emblem and replacing it with a football helmet bearing both teams' logos. The most recent change took place in 1995 after Al Davis purchased majority ownership of then-Los Angeles Raiders; he added silver highlights to both sides of each letter in order to give them more dimensionality while also adding his signature "Just Win Baby" slogan underneath them all together creating what is now known as their current primary logo today!
The Los Angeles Raiders have been through many iterations over their 60 year history but they have always kept true to their core identity: strength & unity embodied by two crossed swords beneath an interlocked "LA". From its humble beginnings back in 1960 up until now, this iconic logo will forever be remembered by fans across generations who proudly display it on t-shirts or hats during games at home or away - no matter how far they travel!
