The original Trail Blazers logo was created in 1970, and Portland has loved it ever since. It represents teamwork, unity and competition. The same values that reflect the spirit of Portland and the Pacific Northwest. It's unique and unlike any other team logo in sports. We agreed with our fans that there was no need to change it much. So, we decided to keep it weird. Just the way we like it.
