It was a fan submission; the Ravens are named after Edgar Allen Poe's poem titled "The Raven."

Poe lived and died in Baltimore.

I think they mean the crest, not the raven or the name?

Props to you. A lot of people know that outside of Baltimore. If you didn't know that, a big hint to Poe being the influence behind the name can be found in the names of the mascots: Edgar, Allan, and Poe.

Fun stuff. I could never get into his stuff. Reading Fall of the House of Usher and The Pit and the Pendulum had to have been some of the most tedious reading I have ever done.

The Baltimore Ravens. The only pro sports team to be named after a work of literature.

If the OP is about the shield it is a driviative of the Maryland State flag.

Edgar Allen Poe poem the Raven. Many people obsessed with Poe here.
There was also a rock band in the 80's named the Ravyns from the Baltimore area

Our proud Baltimore Ravens Crest is modeled after our state crest baring our state colors adding a "B" and a "R". The Maryland State Flag is the only state flag based on heraldic emblems. The design of the flag is taken from the shield in the coat of arms of the Calvert family who were the colonial proprietors of the state of Maryland. The coat of arms adopted by George Calvert, the first Lord Baltimore, included a shield that combined the gold and black colors of his paternal family. The red and white colors are of his maternal family, The Crosslands.

The arms of the Calvert and Crossland families are displayed in diagonally opposing quadrants of the flag.


Since the state of Maryland was war torn during the American Civil War. Some fought for the south and wore red and white to symbolizing succession and others wore gold and black in battle in favor of the union. It is also believed that the flag displays red and white combined with black and gold to symbolize how the divisions between the citizens of Maryland, came together in reconciliation and a reuniting of all the citizens of Maryland.

The design derived from the Calvert coat of arms was flown October 11, 1880, in Baltimore, at a parade celebrating the 150th anniversary of the founding of the city. It was also flown October 25, 1888 at the Gettysburg battlefield, in a ceremony dedicating monuments to members of the Maryland regiments of the Army of the Potomac.

In October 1889, the Fifth Regiment, Maryland National Guard, adopted a flag in this form as its regimental colors and became the first organization to adopt officially what is today the Maryland flag.

There's more than one mascot? I thought there was only Poe. >.> Now can anyone tell me why his number is 103?
