Indianapolis Indians Symbol

Throughout most of its history, the Indianapolis Indians logo has been focusing on the “Indian” theme, in one form or another. For instance, the 1969 emblem featured a side view of the head of an Indian wearing an ethnic headdress. The palette consisted of blue, red, and white.

The logo introduced in 1985 sported a cartoonish Indian in black and white. The character was going to throw a baseball.
