The logo of the Salt Lake Bees is built around a bee, which seems to be the most reasonable mascot for such a name.

Meaning and history

Salt Lake Bees Logo history

The history of the minor league baseball team started in 1994 when the Portland Beavers relocated to Salt Lake City. The team initially played as Salt Lake Buzz, then spent five years under the name of the Salt Lake Stingers before adopting its current name in 2006. The team is the Triple-A affiliate of the Los Angeles Angels.

On both the versions of the Salt Lake Bees logo (old and new), the team’s mascot, Bumble, can be seen holding a baseball bat and wearing a black cap.

The 2014 emblem

What makes the 2014 emblem different is the way the letters are positioned. For instance, the “B” has moved a bit higher. Also, Bumble has got a bolder outline.

At first glance, the Salt Lake Bees logo seems to have nothing in common with that of its parent team. And yet, if you take a closer look, you may notice that the letter “A” on the Angels’ emblem has something in common with the text on the Bees logo (for instance, the ends of the “S” and the sharp angle in the middle of the “B”).

The choice of colors – black, gold, and white – appears to be the most reasonable one for a “bee” theme (black and gold for the bee, white for the background). We can point out, though, that the team seems to have experimented a bit with the saturation of the gold color.
