Image of the Golden State Warriors Logo

The Golden State Warriors are an American professional basketball team based in Oakland, California.

The Warriors’ new primary logo salutes the team’s Bay Area past and links to the exciting prospects of the organization’s future. A silhouette of the yet-to-be-completed Eastern Span of the Bay Bridge is the focal point of the design and a direct spin-off of “The City” logo, one of the most popular emblems in the history of professional sports. Depth was added to the circular band portion of the logo – taken directly from the original model – to provide a modern customization of the graphic design. The simple, yet sleek, design of the Warriors new logo is the result of an 18-month creative and marketing collaboration between the Warriors, the National Basketball Association and adidas – the official outfitter of the NBA.

The depiction of the Bay Bridge in the primary logo serves as the link between the Warriors’ original Bay Area home in San Francisco, where the team arrived from Philadelphia 48 years ago, and its current home in Oakland, where the team is headquartered downtown and has played home games at Oracle Arena (formerly the Oakland Coliseum Arena) for the last 39 seasons.

The colors of the new logos and branding elements are Warriors Royal Blue and California Golden Yellow. These two colors have been the most prevalent in the team’s Bay Area uniform history, appearing as the dominant scheme in four of the last five decades since the team’s arrival on the West Coast in 1962.
