Hawks Primary Logo
The Milwaukee Hawks Primary Logo has been used by the team since its inception in 1951. It is a classic design that has stood the test of time and continues to be used today. The logo features an image of a hawk with wings spread wide, ready for flight, set against a white background with red trimming around it. This iconic symbol was created by artist Robert Indiana and is one of the most recognizable logos in all of the professional sports.
The original version featured two hawks facing each other while perched on top of three basketballs which were meant to represent teamwork and unity among players on the court as well as fans in attendance at games. In later versions, this symbolism remained but was updated slightly so that only one hawk-faced forward while perched atop just two basketballs instead – still representing unity but now also emphasizing individual skill sets within teams more prominently than before.
Throughout its history, minor changes have been made to keep up with modern trends such as changing colors or adding additional elements like stars or stripes; however, these alterations are usually subtle enough not to take away from what makes this logo so beloved: Its timelessness and its ability to capture both strength & grace simultaneously – values which continue to embody both Milwaukee’s NBA franchise & their loyal fan base alike!

For what would ultimately prove to be their last season in Milwaukee, the Hawks updated their color scheme to blue. A change to their logo accompanied the shift with the hawk now in a light blue and black, still clutching a basketball over an unguarded hoop with the wordmark “MILWAUKEE HAWKS” arched upwards below.
1952 - 1954
The Hawks adopted a red and white color scheme in the Cream City, a high flying Hawk in red gripping a red basketball on top of a basketball hoop with a wordmark “MILWAUKEE HAWKS” in red in a U shape.
