Earthquakes Primary Logo
The San Jose Earthquakes are a professional soccer team based in the Bay Area of California. The team was founded in 1974 and has since become one of the most recognizable teams in Major League Soccer (MLS). One of the things that makes them so recognizable is their primary logo, which has gone through several iterations over time.
The original San Jose Earthquakes logo featured an orange circle with a black outline and white text inside it reading “San Jose” at its top, followed by “Earthquakes” at its bottom. Inside this circle was an image depicting three mountains rising up from behind rolling hills underneath a bright yellow sunburst with four red rays emanating outward from it. This original design lasted until 1999 when they updated their look to include two blue stripes running down either side of the text within the orange circle as well as adding two stars above each word for emphasis.
In 2000, they made another update to their primary logo by replacing some elements while keeping others intact; these changes included removing both stars above each word and changing all colors except for black to shades ranging between navy blue and royal blue throughout different parts of both words within this iconic symbol representing MLS's longest-standing franchise - The San Jose Earthquakes! As you can see, even though there have been subtle changes over time, much remains unchanged about this beloved emblem that so many fans around North America recognize today!
