Pilots Primary Logo
The Seattle Pilots' primary logo history is a fascinating story of the team’s identity and how it has evolved over time. The original logo was designed in 1969 when the team first moved to Seattle, Washington. It featured an eagle perched atop a baseball with “Seattle Pilots” written across it in navy blue lettering. This design was used for two seasons before being replaced by another logo featuring a stylized P-shaped airplane flying through clouds with “Seattle Pilots” written underneath it in red lettering.
This second version of the primary logo lasted until 1977 when the franchise relocated to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and became known as the Brewers. After that, there were no further updates or changes made to this particular design until 2019 when Major League Baseball announced plans for new uniforms and logos for all teams including those that had been previously rebranded like Seattle's former franchise now known as "the Mariners."
In 2020, MLB released their updated version of what would become known as “the classic Pilot crest." The new design features an eagle still perched atop a baseball but this time around its wings are spread out wide while also holding onto three stars representing each decade since 1970 that has seen major league action from either side (Pilots/Mariners). In addition to these subtle changes they also kept some elements from previous designs such as retaining both colors; navy blue & red along with keeping ‘Seatle' spelled out above 'Pilots.' All together this makes up one cohesive piece that speaks volumes about not only where they came from but also serves reminder about resilience needed during times of adversity - something every organization needs!
