Eagles Primary Logo
The Philadelphia Eagles have a long and storied history, and their primary logo has been part of that story since the team’s inception in 1933. The original logo was designed by co-founder Bert Bell and featured an eagle perched atop a shield with two stars on either side. This design remained unchanged until 1996 when it was modified to include the words “Philadelphia Eagles” written across the top of the shield in white lettering against a black background. The new look also included minor changes to some of its features, such as replacing one star on each side with wings spread outwards from behind them.
In 2003, another update took place which saw more drastic changes to both its shape and color scheme; this time featuring an entirely different eagle silhouette than before along with green trim around both sides instead of just one like before. Additionally, there were now three stars above each wing rather than two like previously seen on earlier versions as well as additional text reading “Established 1933” at the bottom center position near where tail feathers would be located if they were present (they weren't).
Finally, in 2007 yet another redesign occurred which brought us closer to what we see today: A larger version of our beloved mascot standing proudly atop his shield while holding onto football laces between talons - all set against the traditional black/green color scheme! In addition, this version also includes four small stars representing NFL championships won throughout the franchise's history (1948-49 & 1960). All these elements combined make up the current official primary logo for the Philadelphia Eagles organization - something fans can truly rally behind during good times or bad alike!
The Philadelphia Eagles are sure to be in the mix as NFL League Teams battle it out for the best logo. With their iconic Eagle head and wings, they have one of the most recognizable logos in all of sports. The Eagles will look to take home bragging rights this season and show off their unique symbol with pride!

1996 - Present
The team’s logo changed in 1996, with the eagle limited to a white bald head, drawn in a more cartoon based style. The eagle has determined and aggressive attack look with mouth open. The logo has a silver border to give it a 3-D look. The current logo has a hidden “E” on the neck of the eagle.

From 1948 – 1995, the team logo was an eagle in flight carrying a football in its claws. The design was similar to the Apollo 11 emblem, and its moon-landing craft was dubbed Eagle, players wore the flight’s mission patch on their jerseys during 1969.

In 1943, when manpower shortages stemming from World War II made it impossible to fill the roster, the team merged with the Pittsburgh Steelers forming the “Phil-Pitt Eagles” and were known as the “Steagles.” The merger, never intended as a permanent arrangement, was dissolved at the end of the 1943 season. The logo is a black eagle grabbing a black helmet.
