One of the most well-known professional American football teams, Philadelphia Eagles went through several logos before sticking to the current one.

Meaning and history

Philadelphia Eagles Logo history

The visual identity concept of the Philadelphia Eagles club is one of the most constant in American football history, as it has always been built around the image of an eagle with a football, executed in whether green or blue color palette and only two of the versions varied.

1933 — 1935

The original emblem of Philadelphia eagles was drawn in a very traditional manner, with a lot of details. The eagle holding a football looked very realistic despite its blue color palette. It was an elegant and powerful image with the bird flying to the right and its wings spread up.

1936 — 1941

The color palette of the emblem was switched to green in 1936, along with the eagle’s contours redrawn. Now the bird was moving upright, and it could be seen in the direction of its wings and stretched neck. The ball on this version was enlarged and rounded in comparison to the initial logo.

1942 — 1947

The redesign of 1942 modernized the eagle emblem and refined its contours. Now it was a solid green composition, where the bold silhouette of an eagle with a football featured only a couple of white details. The bird was looking down and had its wings spread up and to the sides.

1948 — 1968

The emblem got more details and white accents in 1948, with another redesign. The football was now mainly white and the eagle got its contours more realistic, though not like on the original emblem, it was now drawn in a more modern and bright manner.

1969 — 1972

The contours of the emblem gained square shapes and right angles in 1969, while the color palette remained untouched. Though green and white were still the only two colors of the composition, the image started looking different from the refinement of the shapes.

1973 — 1986

In 1973 the emblem of the Philadelphia Eagles was redesigned and now boasted an image of a bold green helmet with a delicate and sophisticated gray wing on its side. The bird’s wing was outlined in white and looked light yet powerful.

1987 — 1995

With the redesign of 1987, the Eagles badge got new colors in its palette — orange and brown were now used for the beak of the bird and the football. Another change was about the eagle’s direction, as now it was facing left.

1996 — Today

A completely new style and color palette were adopted by Philadelphia Eagles in 1996. That new sleek badge is still used by the football club today. It is composed of an eagle’s head placed in profile, facing left. The head is drawn in gradient white and gray, with a thick double outline in black and blue. The bird is drawn with sharp bold lines and looks strong and determined.
