Oklahoma City Thunder Primary Logo
According to majority owner Clay Bennett, the light blue color coincides with the state flag to represent the inclusion of all Oklahomans, the yellow refers to the sun and the reddish-orange color to the sunset. With the University of Oklahoma featuring crimson as its primary color, and Oklahoma State using orange, Bennett said it was "not too red and not too orange." Between Seattle and Oklahoma City the Thunder have had a total of 7 different logos in their history.
