The Vikings released an updated Norseman logo Thursday, Feb. 14, featuring an array of subtle enhancements that team officials say make the 52-year-old Vikings logo appear sharper and more defined.
“The enhanced mark strongly upholds the tradition and history of the Norseman,” said Jeff Anderson, director of corporate communications, in a news release.
Five elements of the Norseman have been changed:
— The horn shape was changed to make the logo less tall, and shading was changed along the lower part of the horn.
— The horn base now resembles the horn on the players’ helmets.
— The face is now more detailed, with thicker lines added to the mustache and face, more clearly defining its features.
— The Vikings gold color is now brighter and less brassy.
— The braid has been shortened, reducing logo height.
