Warriors Primary Logo
The Philadelphia Warriors' primary logo has a long and storied history, dating back to the team's founding in 1946. The original logo featured an orange basketball with white lines radiating outwards from it, surrounded by a blue circle containing the words "Philadelphia Warriors". This simple design represented the team's commitment to hard work and dedication on their way to becoming one of professional basketball’s most successful franchises.
In 1962, after winning two championships during their first sixteen seasons of play, they modified their primary logo slightly; this time adding a red-white-blue banner at its base which read “World Champions” beneath an image of five stars representing each championship win. During this period they also added another element –a shield– that contained images of three stars within it as well as several additional elements such as laurel leaves and arrows pointing outward from its center in all directions - further emphasizing both victory and strength.
Throughout subsequent decades there have been minor changes made here or there but for over seventy years now these same basic elements have remained largely unchanged: An orange basketball surrounded by a blue circle containing text reading “Philadelphia Warriors” along with some combination (either singularly or collectively)of banners, shields, stars, etc. As such what began many years ago still stands today: A symbol not only representative of success but also strength courage & tenacity – qualities essential for any champion!
