Nationals Primary Logo
The Washington Nationals have a long and storied history of logos, beginning with their first logo in 2005. The original logo featured a white “W” on top of an outline of the Capitol Building in red and blue. This was intended to represent the team’s connection to its nation's capital city, as well as symbolize strength and power through patriotism. However, this design received mixed reviews from fans due to its simplicity and lack of creativity.
As such, the Nationals decided it was time for a change when they unveiled their new primary logo in 2011. This new look featured a navy blue “W” outlined by stars that were meant to evoke both Washington D.C.'s flag (which features three stars) as well as baseball's traditional five-pointed star pattern around home plate at each ballpark across America. Additionally, this version also included two stripes running down either side representing both Major League Baseball itself (with one stripe being red) along with D C.'s status within America--as represented by another stripe colored after Old Glory herself: Red White & Blue!
Today we see yet another iteration on display; however many aspects remain unchanged from previous versions including color scheme & overall shape/design elements which still honor our Nation's Capital City while simultaneously paying homage to MLB itself—allowing us all access to 'America's Pastime' no matter where we may be located throughout our great country! Ultimately though what truly makes these logos so iconic is how they've been able to capture not only DC but also American pride over generations - making them timeless pieces for any fan regardless if you're cheering out loud or quietly watching at home!
