The well-known and renowned NFL shield has certainly made a name for itself in the sports world. The crest is not just a representation of the team but also a symbol for victory, glory, aggression, loyalty and celebration.

It is a symbol that has united football fans from all over the country and has brought them down to one stadium. When it was formed in 1920, it started off with only eleven teams but now it is managing more than thirty two teams from all over America.

The Old Symbol:

It consists of a crest with 25 stars and an image of a football in the upper half of the image. The football in the image has often been nicknamed as the NFL hamburger due to its resemblance to the famous American snack. The bottom half of the design caters the team name initials. The crest is created with only three colors; red, dark blue and white which makes the image sophisticated and eye catching. These colors are also found in the national flag which gives the design a patriotic touch. The stars in the emblem are also illustrated for the same reasons; besides adding a hint of glamour to the design. The text has been scripted in thick and straight fonts with the letter L curved at the end that adds an artistic touch to the monogram.


The New Symbol:

In 2008, NFL created a leaner, meaner and darker version of their old emblem. In the new monogram, the crest was created to be slightly thinner and taller which the shade of blue going darker. The subtle changes in the emblem were made so that famous NFL would be able to update itself according to time but would not lose the traditional and historic touch that the corporation feels pride over. The stars in the image have also decreased to 8 from 25 to represent the 8 divisions that NFL caters to. The image of the football in the design is also made to look more 3 dimensional which no longer resemble a hamburger. While the colors and the basic shape remains the same, the text has lost its previous curviness and has been replaced with a sharp edged text that depicts professionalism and aggression.


This symbol has been an inspiration to many American football teams like the NY Giants logo, Minnesota Vikings football logo and the Houston Texas logo.


In conclusion, NFL has created a brand mark that contains all the important elements that any national emblem should have; it is a symbol of history, tradition, patriotism and pride that any American footballs fan would be proud to wear.
