Today’s first post is going green. Yep the color we all sport on St. Patrick’s is pretty common in sports logos. This post will celebrate the top 10 logos that feature the color green as the primary color.
10. Dallas Stars NHL
It’s a very simple yet effective logo. A star to represent the lone star state in silver with green to accident it. It looks sharp. The updated logo doesn’t have as much green as the old logo, but there is still plenty of it to go around.
9. Hawaii Warriors NCAA
This one is another sharp and simple logo. The H is super green while accented with silver. Though it looks good I wonder why it doesn’t look like it belongs with a team called the Rainbow Warriors, or Rainbows. http://ncaa-sports.wikia.com/wiki/Hawaii_Warriors
8. Daytona Tortugas
A 2014 affiliation switch gave us this better name. The former Daytona Cubs became the Tortugas after becoming a red affiliate. The logo sports a turtle swinging a bat. The logo is green with a sea blue and white letters. It looks cool and gives the local squad a much more unique name than its predecessor.
7. New York Jets NFL
No denying this logo is green. The Jets have used this classic green and white look for ever. While it may not be super flashy and full of New York swagger it still is a clean logo.
6. Green Bay Packers NFL
This logo is another sharp green logo. Combine it with white and a tasteful yellow and it works really well. The Packers’ logo to me is more iconic than the Jets logo due to the success of the team making it the number six pick.
5. Michigan State Spartans NCAA
Michigan State has had a lot of recent success in both football and basketball. With that success comes a lot of exposure with the dark green and white uniforms.
4. Minnesota Timberwolves/Lynx NBA
These two hoops teams share the same color palate and have similar logos. While the Timberwolves are rebuilding with young talent the Lynx are excelling. The Lynx were WNBA runners -up last year after going in as defending champions.
3. Oregon Ducks NCAA
Most likely when you think green college logos you think Oregon. A green o with yellow and white form a wining logo combination. However, Oregon often forgoes the classic look for one of its many uniform combos. Though no matter how many combos they have green is definitely a mainstay in the looks.
2. Tulane Green Wave NCAA
It has green right in the game so of course it belongs on the list. The Wave goes behind a white T trimmed in green. Green is plentiful in this logo. Though with Tulane not having much success on the national scene this logo isn’t seen much.
1. Boston Celtic NBA
This is a pretty obvious pick. There’s no mistaking this logo for anyone other than Boston. The T logo is very Irish looking in nature with the leprechaun smoking the pipe with green and gold to compliment it. Combine Boston’s successful history in the NBA and you have an iconic logo worth of being the best green logo.
