Chicago Bears Logo History

The club got its current name in 1940, and that was also the time when it got its first logo. That was an image of a black bear with a ball in its paw. In 1954, the logo was replaced with a new one – a football with a bear lying on its top and clinging to it. In 1962, the prototype of its current logo was introduced. That was a white wishbone “C”. The current Chicago Bears logo was accepted in 1974.
