In 1944 a logo with blue jay was adopted, which lasted only a year and was replaced by a picture of two baseball players. The 1950 version featured a red Phillies cap with a baseball. The following emblem introduced in 1971 depicted the team’s mascots Phil and Phyllis. It was replaced 13 years later with a circular logo sporting the Philadelphia tower. In addition to the name of the team, there was the word “Philadelphia” on top of the emblem. The circular shape of the logo was supposed to represent a white baseball.
