Meaning and history

Peoria Chiefs Logo history

1996 — 2004

Peoria Chiefs Logo 1996The connection with the St. Louis Cardinals was rather obvious on the 1996 Peoria Chiefs logo as it depicted a northern cardinal, the symbol of the St. Louis Cardinals. The anthropomorphized bird was holding a baseball bat.

2005 — 2012

Peoria Chiefs Logo 2005As the result of the 2005 update, the bird was replaced by a dog. Interestingly enough, the position of the creature and the way it was holding the baseball bat didn’t change at all, so the overall look of the two logos was very much the same.

2013 — Today
