Meaning and history

Columbia Fireflies Logo history

Minor League Baseball came to Columbia in 1982. The Columbia Fireflies, though, appeared here much later. They were formed out of the Savannah Sand Gnats, which relocated to Columbia in advance of the 2016 season.

1996 – 2015

Columbia Fireflies Logo 1996
Back when the team was called ‘Savannah Sand Gnats’, this was the logo. It depicts a human-like gnat of an ocher color in a red-and-black uniform and sunglasses, wielding a baseball bat. On the right, the team’s name was written in two bits. The uppermost is the word ‘Savannah’ made from tall, but small red letters with big intervals. Below, the rest is written in the same ocher color, but in an artistic, almost hand-drawn style.

2016 – Today

Columbia Fireflies logo
In 2016, they changed the name to ‘Columbia Fireflies’. The central piece, therefore, became a simplistic yellow bug with some blue parts and grey wings. It was placed on a dark blue circle with a lot of sparkles and glinting effects. The name was written in a curve alongside the top half of the circle. The letters were white sans-serifs.
