St. Louis Rams Logo - Design and History

St Louis Rams Logo

The St. Louis Rams are a professional American football team based in St. Louis, Missouri.  The team began in 1936 as the Cleveland Rams and existed in Cleveland until 1945 after which they moved to Los Angeles as the Los Angeles Rams. In 1995, the club moved to its current home in St Louis.

The team name, Rams, comes from the nickname of Fordham University. The name Rams was selected to honor the hard work of the players that came out of that University. The logo features the head of a Ram in team colors of blue and gold. The Rams were the first team to add a logo on their helmet. Their half-back Fred Gehrke painted the Ram horns on the team's helmets in 1948 and it has been on the helmet ever since. The horns were painted in Gold.

The original team colors were red and black but they switched to yellow and blue in 1938 and after a couple of changes between 1938 and 1973, the team selected its current colors or blue and gold. In 2000, the team made some color changes and uniform changes as well.
