The Minnesota 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, Joseph Lindberg of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
"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.
