All the three colors of the team’s official palette (orange, black, and white) are featured in its logotype. The club owners wanted to find a warm color, but red could be already seen in many sports logos. So, one of the founders, Bill Putman, suggested orange, as it was the official color of the University of Texas, where he used to study.
