Washington Redskins Logo - Design and History


The Washington Redskins are a professional American football team based in the Washington, D.C. area. According to Forbes Magazine, the Redskins are the second most valuable franchise in the NFL, valued at approximately $1.467 billion, having this year been surpassed by their rivals the Dallas Cowboys.  The Washington Redskins started in Boston as the Boston Braves and were later called the Boston Redskins.

Their logo is the face of an Native American chief facing the right. The chief's head is placed within a yellow circle that has some yellow feathers. The yellow comes from the team colors of burgundy and gold.  One of the fans has been coming to all the games since 1978 dressed as the Chief, and this man goes by the name Chief Zee. Sometimes the name "Cheif Zee" may be associated with the Logo and the reason for that is mentioned above. 

Over the years, the logos have changed slightly but they have always depicted the face of the chief.
