Rangers Primary logo
The Texas Rangers' primary logo is one of the most iconic symbols in all professional sports. It has been around since the team's inception in 1972 and remains a beloved symbol among fans to this day. The logo was created by designer Richard Evans, who wanted to create something that would capture the spirit and history of Texas while also being easily recognizable.
The original design featured an outline of a cowboy on horseback set against a background with five stars representing each state within the Lone Star State - Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, and New Mexico. This classic design has seen some minor tweaks over time such as changing colors or adding more detail but it still remains largely unchanged from its original conception nearly 50 years ago.
It is clear why this logo continues to be so popular after all these years; it captures everything great about Texas culture: independence, strength, and resilience which are values that can be shared by everyone regardless if they’re from inside or outside “the lone star state”! It serves as an excellent reminder for fans everywhere that no matter what challenges we face we should always strive for greatness just like our beloved Rangers do every game day!
