American Football League (AFL) logo

American Football League logo
The red soccer ball that can be clearly seen on the American Football League logo doesn’t leave any doubt as to what field the organization operates in. Above the soccer ball, there’s a bald eagle in red that appears to be moving at an extremely high speed. However, it’s not actually obvious whether it’s the eagle or the football that is flying.
Over the eagle, a large white letter “A” with a bright blue outline is positioned. In fact, it’s the only letter on the AFL logo, so for someone who isn’t in the know, it’s almost impossible to figure out what organization the logo belongs to. From both sides of the “A,” there’re three blue stars. The design is placed inside a thick blue ring, which is also given in the same bright shade of blue as the stars and the outline of the “A.”

The name “American Football League” was historically used by four organizations. None of them is still active. The first American Football League was established in 1926, the second one appeared ten years later. Another league of the same name was founded in 1940. Eventually, we should mention the most successful one, which was active for ten seasons from 1960 until 1969. After that, it became part of the older National Football League.
