Royals Primary Logo
The Rochester Royals' primary logo has a long and storied history. First introduced in 1945, the original design featured an image of a crowned lion with its paw resting on a basketball. This logo was used until 1954 when it was replaced by one featuring two crossed swords behind the same crowned lion. The crossed swords were meant to represent strength and courage, while also symbolizing loyalty to the city of Rochester itself.
In 1970, this design underwent another transformation when it adopted its current form: three crowns above an orange basketball with blue accents around them forming a shield-like shape – all against an off-white background color that is still used today as part of their official team colors scheme. This new look has been associated with success for both players and fans alike; during this era, they won several division titles as well as appeared in multiple NBA finals series’ throughout their time playing professionally (1946–1978).
Today, even though they no longer exist in professional leagues - having folded after the 1978 season - many still consider themselves die-hard Royalists due to what this historic franchise accomplished over 30 years ago using these iconic logos! The legacy left behind by those who once wore these jerseys lives on through memorabilia collectors everywhere who proudly display items bearing either old or newly designed versions of “Rochester Royal” insignia at home or office spaces across America!
