Meaning and history Grand Rapids Griffins Logo

Grand Rapids Griffins Logo history

The original logo, which was adopted in advance of the 1996/97 playing season, sported a griffin standing at his full height, with broad wings and scary claws. The creature had the full name of the team below. In 2001 and 2002, the color scheme was slightly modified.

Not long before the 2015/16 playing season, an entirely new Grand Rapids Griffins logo was introduced. Here, only the upper part of the bird’s body was depicted, while all the rest was hidden behind the inscription “Griffins” in white.
