  • Download PNG Boston Celtics Logo PNG Boston Celtics is a basketball club from the United States, which was established in 1946 in Massachusetts.
  • 1946 — 1950 The very first logo of the team, created in 1946, depicted an intense green circle with a white shamrock leaf in the middle and an arched rounded sans-serif “Celtics” lettering above it.
  • 1950 — 1960 The first leprechaun appeared on the club’s logo in 1950.
  • It was a funny man in a crown-hat with the “NBA” lettering.
  • 1960 — 1968 In 1969 the same image was used as the club’s logo, but now the leprechaun was placed on an orange background, in order to create better contrast.
  • He is now spinning the ball on his finger and leans on a cane, smiling and blinking.
  • The green and white silhouette is placed on a red background, stylized as a basketball.
  • The “Boston Celtics” wordmark was placed on the left and right from the leprechaun, around the ball’s perimeter, colored in white.
  • The whole logo is executed in white and green, with a thin black outline.
  • The wordmark in white is written in all capitals and executed in a bold custom sans-serif typeface with neat thick lines and distinct ranges of the letters.
  • The leprechaun’s skin is now also colored, which makes the logo more detailed and realistic.
  • This version is still in use today along with two additional emblems, created in 1998.
  • A stylish sleek shamrock leaf in white with white arched lettering above it, placed inside the green solid circle.
  • It looks strong and masculine, yet the perfect balance of the lines and spaces make the wordmark look sophisticated and stylish.
