Anyone think this logo should be used more?

I love the all black logo with the red eyes. Looks super intimidating. Seen it on some Ravens apparel and now it's on the tickets apparently. Do y'all agree that it should be seen more? 

 

My bad re-creation:

I'm okay with our logo as it is. The thing I hate about the Ravens uniforms, is whenever they wear black pants AND black socks. It looks like they're wearing ballet tights. Some purple stripes would solve that problem. I don't like the 3D effect on the numbers either.

Same. They look great as an alternative spin on the logo, but if you were to put it on a helmet/uniform it wouldn't really do to well IMO. It just doesn't pop.

I'm for more for subtle changes, rather than let Nike go crazy on the designs. You never know how those new uniforms work out. Sometimes they worked out great like the Seahawks (which were buttugly before) or the Vikes (the new uniforms are very nice; love the simplicity) unis and other times they look horrible like for the Jags or the Bucs (seriously, those digital watch numbers are the worst!Call me crazy, but I actually like the very first Tampa unis).

When they was first building the stadium I remember hearing they was going to build a big black bird with the red eyes. They was going to have it looking out at the street while there was no game action and during the game rotate it 180 degrees and have it looking in on the field. They nixed it tho cuz it was gonna cost too much money since it was taxpayer funds. Would have been neat tho.

I'd like to see what it would look like to get rid of the white pants and try an all purple home uni. Might look good, might not, but I'm not a fan of the white pants.

But the logo for the thread topic is cool. I think it should only be used on merch though. It wouldn't show up real well on the black helmets. The shield is still my favorite.

No.

 

 

What is it with black? The Ravens colors are PURPLE and black. Not black and black. Purple is the main color. Its what sets them apart from other teams. Lots of teams use black, including the Steelers. We are the only ones that use (real) purple. Yes, yes there is that team up north that uses lavender and calls it purple, like the Steelers use black and yellow and call it "gold". Gold. Right. Fool's gold maybe.

 

Purple.

 

Hate the shield. What are we the Baltimore Marylanders? There should be a raven on the logo. Not some goofy shield.

 

As far as the other ravens head, the one looking forward, I just prefer the one they use now.

 

 

Although that black logo would look good on a shirt.

I dunno. The shield make sense to me considering this teams history. It's almost like Baltimore wants to hold on to this franchise as hard as they can and not lose it like they did with the Colts. I like history and tradition, because it gives people focus and a sense of purpose.

Aside from my thinking it is goofy, to me it is just too busy. Too much going on, with the flag and all the various colors and shapes. The logo should be simple so that school kids can doodle it on their notebooks when the teacher is droning on about the price of rice in China.

The team is based in Baltimore and we represent Maryland as well. All the Baltimore teams use our magnificent flag, from community colleges to the pros. Seeing how each one uses it is pretty fun. The flag is one of the best looking on the planet in my opinion and even been voted top 3 in the entire NA. We have history and tradition and we love to celebrate it.

So it should be simple so people can draw it? Ugh that's the worst reason I've ever heard. I like that our main logo isn't just some bird someone drew. It's a shield representing the City and state and declaring it loud and clear. You go to the games you see people waving our flag around, especially at Orioles games. I like the complexity and how it sets us apart from everyone else.

the ravens head is stuck in the 90s, it is an extremely outdated logo, one of the worst helmet decals in the league IMO. 

 

obviously the shield wouldnt make us the baltimore marylanders, since it says BR on it, anyone in maryland has huge pride in the flag, its something we are kinda known for, look at our college teams uniforms, they consist 99% of the designs of the flag, and it would be a classic but modern look on a uniform that could use some updating. 

 

that BR shield would go down as an iconic helmet decal and it is what we have been asking for pretty much since the inception of this team.

I was born in Maryland. As were both my parents and my grandparents. Except for a stint in the navy and some very short professional obligations, I have lived my entire 52 years in the state. Even when I lived out of state, my feet always found their way back here. I have deep roots here. This is home. So I am, by every sense and definition of the word "IN" Maryland. I am also an "anyone". Yet I have never carried any sort of pride in the state flag. I haven't held any contempt for it either. Until this thread I never gave it much more than a passing thought. So your statement that "anyone in Maryland has huge pride in the flag" is obviously WRONG. Its a state flag. One of fifty just like it. We are not speaking of Old Glory, the Star Spangled Banner and symbol of our great nation here.

 

During my years in the navy, the question of where I was from came up often. When speaking of my beloved home state, I remember being asked about many things. The nations capitol, the Preakness and horse racing, the fact that jousting is the state sport. Never once did anyone ever speak of or comment about the state flag, so I am not sure how you come up with the idea that we are "known" for it. By my experience we are not. The motto is "Maryland is for crabs" not "flags" Please correct me if I am wrong.

 

Also could you explain how a shield incorporating the flag would be more iconic than the present logo. If anything it would be less so, since everyone who knows football already knows that symbol. A new symbol would be unknown at first and so less iconic in actuality.

I failed to realize peoples passion and seriousness for changing our beloved Ravens symbol. I had assumed this thread was all in jest, and the "drawing" comment was a joke, in case you curmudgeons didn't catch that. Which obviously you didn't

 

None of our pro teams use the flag in their symbol. At least I have never seen a MD state flag as part of either present logo. Maybe I am missing something? Certainly they wave the flag at games, but I didn't say that the state flag should be banned or anything. I just said I didn't like that shield design as a logo. Being forced to comment, I would agree our flag is more interesting than many of the other state flags.

 

None of this is really relevant anyway, since I think we all know that regardless of what any of you may want, we can rest assured that Mr Biscotti is not going to be changing the Ravens logo to a shield, a flag or a grapefruit in our lifetimes.

 

 

By the way, this topic has officially become stupid.

Not taxpayers funding, lottery funding.

Baltimore has taken the Oriole and changed it over 60 years, but no love the  Raven! Did we change the Horseshoe? Maybe tweat ti over the years but not that horrible shield! It said a lot about Baltimore, but not about the rebirth of football in Charm City after being totally jobbed by the Irsey's!  Raven's forever, and Baltimore Colt never be forgotten! JMO!!

man you definitely took that a little too far. maybe not every single person cares about the flag, but it is iconic in this state, clothing with the flag in it is very popular, maryland flag tattoos(i have a massive one myself on the left side of my chest) are common, bumper stickers, its on the sleeves of both baltimore teams, its in the middle of our field, it is an icon in maryland, i dont care how you personally feel about it, the truth is that it is a very important image to a large portion of marylanders as we feel such a unique flag is a solid representation of such a unique area, that we are proud to come from, and pairing that with the fact that our current logo is played out, too small, and cheesy looking on the helmets, and ALSO pairing that with the fact that it has been a very common request for years that we make that our primary logo, just makes me think "hey, why not?" 

 

the jets have JETS inside a green football on their helmet, not a jet. 

the bears have a C on their helmet, not a bear. 

the chiefs have a KC inside of an arrowhead, not a chief. 

the cowboys have a star, not a cowboy. 

the titans have a T inside of a comet, not a titan. 

the giants have a big NY, not a giant. 

majority of baseball logos represent the city instead of the mascot with capital letters. 

 

i see no reason to make a legitimate excuse out of "we are the ravens, not the baltimore marylanders" 

 

it is a much classier logo, that shield is a classic example of beauty in simplicity, you dont need a profile of an animal head to have a good logo, the ravens shield is iconic as our centerfield emblem and it would be a much classier look on our helmets. 

 

our current logo is comparable to the panthers and broncos and jags, pretty universally loathed logo's because they reek of 90s maximalist design, and are played out and sort of obnoxious looking, up until this offseason we were known as one of the classiest organizations in the league, lets get a helmet decal to represent that, instead of a goofy looking tiny bird head with a backwards B on one side of the helmet.

I would say that you could not be more WRONG. Maryland is known for the pride in the state flag. I have traveled to 42 states and the flag topic has come up more than once. I would say that Maryland pride is only eclipsed by the Texas and equal to South Carolina.

Arguing with me will get you nowhere. You guys need to make an appointment to see the owner and take your arguments to him. See where that gets you.

 

 

Love the ravens, love the logo, because it isn't going to change.

I was just saying our most prominent teams use the flag/shield period. It's very much a source of pride for many Marylanders because of its roots, its one of only two with english heraldry, and its a exceptional looking flag. I kinda think you are the one making a big deal or taking it too far and others who have responded before me make that point as well as correcting you on just how beloved our flag is. I'll give the nod to Texans and the California love for their flag but Maryland is tops in terms of love and aesthetic. It's just a discussion no need to make it out like its a war over changing the logo. I like our current logo better than most other ones, its a cool bird with a B, but it has nothing on the shield which is much classier and speaks to the sophistication people attributed to our chosen team name compared to the boring, basic, extraneous names for other teams. You disagree that's fine but don't make it out to be something it's not, were just having a nice discussion before the season starts. It's funny how this topic(which is actually fun) is somehow stupid compared to the ridiculous threads usually posted.
