New Orleans Pelicans Logo History

The New Orleans Pelicans started as the New Orleans Hornets as the team moved from Charlotte in 2002. After changing the franchise nickname to the Pelicans in 2013, it gave back Charlotte its Charlotte Hornets name and team history. The pelican, as a symbol, represents teamwork, group dynamics, regeneration/renewal and resourcefulness. The current logo references to the style, flourish and heritage of the city are subtly ingrained in the mark.
