Miami Heat Logos History

Miami Heat joined the NBA in 1988. The Heat logo is one of the most popular NBA team logos, a flaming ball flying into the basketball hoop. Its original logo was created in 1988.

The redesigned 1999 logo switched the color palette to a darker one and the basketball is drawn in muted red with the yellow ends. The ring became white. The flame of the “T” was also tweaked and went a bit to the right.
