The design is simple, a single shape to represent the Lone Star State. The key to the success of this logo is its simplicity and the fact it has remained unchanged since the ‘60s tells you a lot about what people think of it. There are not many sports logos that are instantly recognizable across the world, but this is one of them.
One of the most iconic basketball teams in NBA history has to have a famous logo, and the Celtics really do. The charismatic leprechaun used in this logo has been a mainstay of the Boston team for decades after it first debuted in 1969. Since then it has been synonymous with the Celtics and their success.
Speaking of iconic basketball teams, the Chicago Bulls are best-known for their success during the ‘90s. Thanks to that decade of dominance their logo is ingrained in the history of the NBA and the snarling bull was a symbol of their aggressive desire to win.
New York Yankees
There aren’t many sporting logos that can break into the public consciousness, but the New York Yankees symbol does just that. Thanks to one baseball cap worn by Jay-Z the logo was pretty much everywhere during the 2000s, and it is still hugely popular today. The logo itself is over 100 years old and has been as much a part of the franchise as Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, or Derrick Jeter.
If a college team logo is making the list, you know they’ve been very successful in the past. The Texas Longhorns logo symbolizes strength and power which many of the football players at the college need to have to get in the team. It is a logo that has accompanied many Longhorn national championships and will continue to do so years into the future.
These logos have already stood the test of time, and it’s unlikely we’ll see any of their franchises change things up any time soon. They are the most iconic sports logos of all time.
