The Green Bay Packers logo belongs to the world famous American football team based in Green Bay, Wisconsin, who hold the remarkable and time-honored position as the second-oldest football franchise in the National Football League, behind the Cardinals, who were founded in 1898, and predating even the NFL itself. The ubiquitous oval “G” logo was created in 1961 by a former Packers equipment manager named George “Dad” Braisher, and was promptly idealized to stand for the “G” in Green Bay, but to the fans it would symbolize what they felt the team truly represented – “Greatness”. There were a number of alternate logos used by the team in the years before 1961, but the only logo that has ever appeared on the championship team’s helmet was the “G”, and set on a field of green and gold in the 1950s.
Founded in 1919 by Earl “Curly” Lambeau and George Whitney Calhoun, the team has twelve league championship trophies to their credit, including nine NFL Championships won prior to the Super Bowl era, and four Super Bowl victories in 1967, 1968,1996 and 2010. Regarded as the first professional football team to be called a dynasty, and also the first organization to make use of a corporate sponsorship, when, in 1919, the Indian Packing Company generously endowed the team with uniforms and equipment for the incredible sum of $500, and launched the name of the “Packers” into the pages of sports history.
