Braves Alternate Logo
The Milwaukee Braves' alternate logo history is an interesting one. The team had several different logos over the years, each with its own unique look and symbolism. From the original “M” logo to the current “BRAVES” wordmark, these logos all have a special place in baseball history.
The first official Milwaukee Braves alternate logo was introduced in 1953 and featured a simple red circle with white lettering reading “Milwaukee Braves” inside it. This design remained until 1957 when they changed their color scheme from blue and red to navy blue, orange, yellow and white which gave them a more modern look that was designed by renowned sports artist Leroy Neiman who also created some of their other iconic designs throughout this period such as their tomahawk headdress logo which became very popular among fans during this time frame due to its boldness and creativity compared to other teams at the time.
In 1965 another change took place where they altered their primary mark yet again featuring an image of Chief Noc-A-Homa wearing his signature headdress along with two crossed tomahawks behind him inside a shield shape representing strength & courage while still keeping true elements from previous versions like using navy & orange colors for consistency within franchise identity. Over 50 years later despite no longer playing in Wisconsin, the legacy lives on through many diehard fans who proudly display memorabilia featuring these classic symbols even today signifying how much impact those particular marks had on not only baseball but culture itself making them timeless pieces of art that will continue living long after we are gone.
