Apart from the color scheme, the West Virginia Power logo doesn’t have anything in common with that of its parent team, the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Meaning and history

West Virginia Power Logo history

While professional baseball came to Charleston in 1910, the West Virginia Power was officially founded only in 1987. The current nickname was adopted in 2005. Today, the team competes in the South Atlantic League as the Class-A affiliate of the Major League’s Pittsburgh Pirates.

2005 — 2008

West Virginia Power Logo 2005
The first logo for the West Virginia Power club was designed in 2005 and stayed with the team for just three years. It was a bright yellow and gold composition, formed by uppercase “Power” inscription, with the first and last letters enlarged, a darker underline, and a roof of the Capitol above the lettering. The “West Virginia” line was set between the main logotype and the graphical part, written in all capitals of a square sans-serif typeface.

2009 — Today

West Virginia Power logo
The redesign of 2009 introduced a completely new badge, but in the same color palette, with just some black elements added to the image. The Capitol emblem was removed, so was the underline. Not the inscription in the uppercase with two letters enlarged was outlined in black and set on a dark yellow background. The yellow and black baseball is placed on the right from the wordmark, surrounded by several lightning bolts. The “West Virginia” inscription is set in black letters above the main logotype.
