The word “Raptors” was suggested by a 10-year-old girl called Tracy during the name-the-team contest. In return, Tracy received lifetime season tickets.

The old logo was inspired by a dinosaur (a utahraptor, to be precise) that can be seen at the George S. Eccles Dinosaur Park located in the team’s hometown.

The 2015 emblem, which was developed by Jeremy Maxwell of New Era, sports a leaner, sleeker utahraptor. While the core of the logo remained the same, the dinosaur changed its position and adopted a more dynamic look.
