Meaning and History logo

Indianapolis Colts Logo history

The history of the Colts logo began with the advent of the club itself in 1953. The Baltimore logo featured a blue horse wearing a football helmet, holding a football and jumping over a goal post. The “Baltimore Colts” wordmark was written in grey capitals. This logo continued until 1960. In 1961 it was modified: a large part of it was removed, but the horse was still there, and there was a horseshoe mark – the would-be Colts logo – on the helmet. This logo was in use until 1978.
