INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts Monday debuted new logos and changes to the uniform as it prepares for the upcoming NFL season.
Colts representatives said the new designs will complement the traditional “Horseshoe” fans have come to know and love.
“The Horseshoe remains our most iconic and timeless mark, worn by some of the greatest players in NFL history and loved by some of football’s greatest fans, Colts Nation,” Carlie Irsay-Gordon, Colts vice chair & owner said. “These new logos – particularly our new Indiana logo – honor our rich history, cement our real and lasting connection to Indiana and embrace the exciting future that lies ahead.”
Gone will be the horseshoe around the neckline of the uniform, replaced by a new “C” logo that incorporates the outline of the Indiana state borders and the seven grommets from the traditional logo.
Also gone will be the traditional tall, squeezed together letters spelling out the word “Colts.” Instead, the team nickname will appear on the back of the helmet with a more updated font.
Indianapolis also is bringing back the numerical font used by the team in the 1950s and ’60s and will use an anvil black Nike swoosh on their white uniforms instead of the speed blue swoosh.
