The Royals original logo in 1958 was around for over 12 years and then the Royals decided to change their logo in 1972 to a basketball with a crown. This logo lasted only one year because the Royals moved to Kansas City. However, this logo design that was created in Cincinnati has to be complimented for its longevity and design. The logo was a part of the team in three different cities and then gets reincarnated into the new 2016 Kings logo.
1946 - 1957
The initial Rochester Royals logo featured a blue and white shield with the wordmark “ROCHESTER” on the top in white, with a white banner with the wordmark “ROYALS” on it.
