Chargers Logo History


Since its inception in 1960, the club has had several logos. The first one was a shield logo with a blue horse head, white lightning bolt, “LA” in blue (the team was founded in Los Angeles), and “Los Angeles Chargers” in gold yellow on a blue circle enclosing the shield. In 1961 the club moved from Los Angeles to San Diego and it had to modify the logo.

The blue circle was removed, as was the “LA”, and a new shade of blue – the “powder blue” – replaced the original deep blue color in the shield. From 1974 until 2001, the club used helmet logos that featured the lightning bolt. In 2002, the first lightning-bolt Chargers logo appeared. It was a white electric arc with a navy blue contour.
