Boston Celtics Logo History

Boston Celtics was founded in 1946 as part of Basketball Association of America (BAA). The nickname of the franchise was invented by the first owner Walter Brown. The argument in Celtics’ favor was his exclamation “Boston is full of Irishmen.” Each version of the logo closely echoes the nickname and reflects the Celtic theme.
