Although the Green Bay logo has undergone a few modifications, it has always preserved a football as one of its core elements. The original emblem had the football at the background, while the current one uses its shape as the logo outline.

Meaning and history Green Bay Logo

green bay packers logo history

In spite of the fact that the Green Bay Packers were created in 1921, they actually got their first official logotype only in 1951, following Curly Lambeau’s exit in 1949. It featured the word “Packers” in dark green with an orange football at the background. On either side of the emblem, goal posts of the same color could be seen.

1956-1980 Green Bay symbol

The 1956 version depicted a quarterback in a throwing stance. Behind him, the map of the team’s home state, Wisconsin, was positioned. There was a star next to the place where Green Bay is located. All these were placed inside a gold football.

Five years later, the club went through rebranding and received its iconic “G” logotype. The white letter was placed in a green oval symbolizing a football. The authors of the emblem were equipment manager Gerald Brashier and art student John Gordon.

The latest modification of the Green Bay logo took place in 1980. It was actually just a slight upgrade: a gold outline was added to the forest green oval. This is exactly how the current logotype looks.
