San Diego Chargers logo and symbol, meaning, history, PNG

  • The club is based in San Diego, California.
  • The first one was a shield logo with a blue horse head, white lightning bolt, “LA” in blue (the team was founded in Los Angeles), and “Los Angeles Chargers” in gold yellow on a blue circle enclosing the shield.
  • In 1961 the club moved from Los Angeles to San Diego and it had to modify the logo.
  • 1961 — 1973 The blue circle was removed, as was the “LA”, and a new shade of blue – the “powder blue” – replaced the original deep blue color in the shield.
  • The color palette was modified once again, both the yellow and blue colors growing darker.
  • The helmet was rotated to a 3/4 view.
  • In addition to this, the lightning bolt was now white, with a gold and blue outline.
  • 2002 — 2006 In 2002, the team got rid of the helmet logo, and only the arched lightning bolt was left looking more like the one used in the 1974 logo than that from the 1988 variation.
  • Symbol The Chargers logo symbolizes the team’s infinite electrifying power and energy that nourishes players’ skills, determination, and will to win.
  • Emblem Having moved to Los Angeles, the Charges went through three logos in two days, yet eventually stuck to the logotype and the wordmark that looked almost the same as the San Diego ones, except for the inevitable modification of the text.
  • Shape The current Chargers logo features the lightning bolt, which resembles that of the 2002 logo, except the ark is gold, and it has a “powder”- and navy blue contours.
  • Colors The official palette incorporates four colors, including two shades of blue (navy blue and so-called powder blue), as well as gold and white.
  • All these are used on both the LA Chargers logo and the wordmark.
  • The glyphs in the LA wordmark seem to belong to the same type as those used in the San Diego Chargers version.
