Meaning and history

Iowa Cubs Logo history

The primary logo of the Iowa Cubs has been exceptionally consistent since 1982. The emblem, which has been heavily based on that of the Chicago Cubs from the Major League Baseball, has stayed virtually unchanged with only a minor element added to it.

1982 — 1983

Iowa Cubs Logo 1982During the 1982/83 playing season, the I-Cubs used the logo of their parent team. It featured the word “Cubs” in red inside a dark blue ring. The letter “C,” which was larger than all the other letters, held the “ubs” text inside.

1984 — 1997

The logo, created for Iowa Cubs in 1984, stayed with the club for more than a decade. It was the same badge, designed in 1982, but with an elevated color palette and additional lettering. When the blue shade of the visual identity remained almost unchanged, the red became brighter and more intense. The lines of the Ted elements inside the blue and white circular Iowa Cubs badge got refined and cleaned too. The handwritten blue “Iowa” in cursive was added to the top left part of the logo, making the whole composition look stylish and modern.

1998 — Today

The redesign of 1998 softened the shade of blue on the Iowa Cubs’ visual identity. All of the elements on the logo remained the same, but with a new tone, the whole badge started looking more professional and confident, evoking a sense of stability and protection.
