Old symbol

Trenton Thunder symbol

The character featured on the Trenton Thunder logo unveiled in 2003 was probably Zeus, the thunder god of ancient Greek religion. At least, he was dressed like an ancient warrior and was holding a lightning bolt in his hand.

The 2008 emblem

The designers of the next version got rid of Zeus. Instead, they introduced an anthropomorphized blue cloud clenching a yellow lightning bolt like a baseball bat. The lettering “Trenton Thunder” was placed on the forefront.

The Trenton Thunder logo doesn’t seem to be visually aligned with that of its parent team, the New York Yankees, neither in its structural elements, nor in its colors. Both the palettes feature navy blue, yet it’s apparently not the same shade. In addition to dark blue, the emblem of the Trenton Thunder also includes gold elements, white, light blue, and silver details.
