Minneapolis Lakers primary logo history: The Lakers for their years in Minnesota used only one logo, created in the '40s. For creating in the '40s this logo has great creativity, layout and color scheme. The only lacking aspect is to bring some look of the lakes into the design.
1948 - 1960
The first logo of the Lakers was back when the team was in Minneapolis. The logo has a map of Minnesota in white on a brown and black outline basketball as a background and the location of Minneapolis is highlighted by a yellow star. A wordmark “MPLS.” in yellow with two stars and “LAKERS” below in yellow.
