Boston Celtics Logos History

Boston Celtics was founded in 1946 as part of Basketball Association of America (BAA). The team joined the NBA in 1949 as part of the BAA and the National Basket League. The nickname of the franchise was invented by the first owner Walter Brown who remarked “Boston is full of Irishmen.” Each version of the Boston Celtics logo closely echoes the nickname and reflects the Celtic theme.
