Being a member club of the National League, the Colorado Rockies baseball team has been competing in the Western division since 1993. As Denver, where the Rockies base, is close to the Rocky Mountains, the team got the name “Rockies”.

Meaning and history

Colorado Rockies Logo history


Over 27 years of the Rockies’ existence the team has had two rather simple, but elegant logos, in which they state obvious things just in two words and some pictorial.

1993 — 2016

Colorado Rockies Logo 1993For their first season of 1993 the Rockies presented a new logo design. It features practically the same purple Rockies as in the earlier logo, a baseball going past them, an arch and the wordmarks “COLORADO” and “ROCKIES”. The color scheme itself did not change. Still there are some modifications. Thus, the arch is already black and the wordmark “COLORADO” inside it is silver. Its font has also changed and has become more attractive. The baseball is placed not in the middle of the emblem, but to the right and somewhat higher, so it looks bigger in size.

2017 — Today

Colorado Rockies logo

The present Colorado Rockies logo can boast of a classic and rather laconic look. It consists of only two elements ‒ linked silver letters “C” and “R” with a black trim. The letter “C” stands for the state of Colorado and “R” represents the team’s nickname. But it was not something entirely new. This image used to be the team’s alternate logo in 1993-2016.
