Logo and outfits
Uniform (American football) and reference about Eagles’ uniform numbers.
For a very long while, the Eagles’ colors were kelly green, silver, and white. In 1954, the Eagles, alongside the Baltimore Colts, turned into the second group ever in the NFL to put a logo on their helmets, with silver wings on a kelly green protective cap. In 1969, the group wore two cap adaptations: Kelly green with white wings in street diversions, and white with kelly green wings at home. From 1970 to ’73, they wore the white head protectors with Kelly green wings solely before changing back to Kelly green caps with silver wings. By 1974, Joseph A. Scirrotto Jr. planned the silver wings went up against a white framework, and this style on a kelly green head protector ended up standard for more than two decades.
From 1948 to 1995, the group logo was a hawk in flight conveying a football in its paws, despite the fact that from ’69– 72, the falcon went up against a more adapted look. As the plan was like the Apollo 11 emblem, and its moon-landing craft was dubbed Eagle, players wore the flight’s central goal fix on their pullovers amid 1969.
In 1973, the group’s name was included underneath the hawk, coming back to its pre-1969 look.
Be that as it may, both the logo and garbs were fundamentally modified in 1996. The essential kelly green shading was changed to a darker shade, formally portrayed as “midnight green.” Silver was for all intents and purposes relinquished, as uniform jeans moved to either white or midnight green. The conventional protective cap wings were changed to a basically white shading, with silver and dark accents. The group’s logo blend (the hawk and club name lettering) additionally changed in 1996, with the falcon itself restricted to a white (bald eagle) head, attracted a less sensible, more toon based style, and the lettering changing from calligraphic to square letters.
Since the 1996 changes, the group has made just minor modifications, generally identifying with pullover/gasp mixes worn amid particular amusements. For instance, in 1997, against the San Francisco 49ers, the group wore midnight green pullovers and jeans for the first of just two events in group history. The second event was in 2002, amid the last standard season diversion at Veterans Stadium, a prevail upon the division-rival Washington Redskins. After a year, in the initial two diversions of the 2003 season (both home misfortunes to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New England Patriots), the Eagles wore white shirts with white jeans. Since 2003, the white pullovers alongside white jeans have been worn amid preseason amusements.
The 2003 season additionally observed the first (however just inconspicuous) change to the 1996-style uniform. On both white and green shirts, dark shadows and silver trim were added to both the green and white numbering. The stripe on the jeans changed from dark green-dark to dark silver-green on the white jeans, and from a strong dark stripe to one stripe of dark, another of silver, with one little white stripe in the middle of for the midnight blue jeans. The 2003 season likewise observed the group make a big appearance dark interchange shirts, with a green (rather than dark) shadow on white numbers, and silver trim. These dark pullovers have been worn for two selected home games each season (as a rule the principal home diversion after bye week and the season finale).
general season home finales
In the 2003 and 2004 general season home finales, the group wore the green road pants with the dark substitute pullovers, yet lost each amusement. From that point forward, the Eagles have just worn the dark shirts with the white jeans. In any case, because of the extraordinary 75th commemoration garbs filling in as the “exchanges” for one diversion in 2007, the Eagles couldn’t wear the other dark pullover that season per group rules (interchange regalia are allowed twice per season yet just a single can be utilized).
The dark pullovers with white jeans, in any case, re-showed up for the 2008 Thanksgiving night amusement against the Arizona Cardinals. The dark pullovers were most as of late utilized in a December 21, 2016 diversion against the New York Giants, in which they won 24-19. From 2006 to 2013, the Eagles have just worn the substitute dark pullovers once a season and for the last November home amusement, however did not utilize them in 2007, 2010, and 2011. For the 2007 and 2010 seasons, the Eagles utilized return regalia instead of the dark substitutes for their commemoration to remember past groups. The group likewise began wearing dark shoes solely in 2004. Since 2014, the Eagles have worn the dark pullover twice per season. In 2016, they wore the dark shirt three times.
To commend the group’s 75th commemoration, the 2007 outfits included a 75th-season logo fix on the left shoulder. Moreover, the group wore “throwback” jerseys in a 2007 diversion against the Detroit Lions. The yellow and blue pullovers, similar hues discovered on Philadelphia’s city signal, depend on those well used by the Philadelphia Eagles in the group’s debut season, and were similar hues utilized by the former Frankford Yellow Jackets franchise before their suspension of activities in 1931. The Eagles beat Detroit, 56– 21.
The Eagles wear their white pullovers at home for preseason diversions and daytime amusements in the principal half of the consistent season from September to mid-October when the temperature is hotter. In night challenges in the primary portion of the consistent season, the Eagles don’t have to sport white at home since the temperature is cooler.
In any case, there have been special cases, for example, the home opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2003 and the Washington Redskins in 2007 that were played around evening time. In late October or starting in November, the Eagles begin to wear their hues at home (despite the fact that they have done it before previously), be it the midnight green pullovers or a third shirt. On one event the Eagles donned white at home after October in a gathering against the Dallas Cowboys on November 4, 2007 to influence the Cowboys to wear their street blue pullovers. Since moving to Lincoln Financial Field in 2003, the Eagles have sported white at home for in any event their home opener, with the special cases for the 2010 home opener (see next passage), the 2011 home opener against the New York Giants, the 2016 home opener against the Cleveland Browns, and the 2017 home opener against the Giants.
In the 2010 season against the Green Bay Packers, on September 12, 2010, the Eagles wore regalia like the ones that were worn by the 1960 title group in respect the 50th commemoration of that team. In weeks 4 and 6 of the 2010 season, the Eagles wore their white shirts in a coordinate against the Washington Redskins and Atlanta Falcons separately before returning to their midnight green pullovers for whatever is left of their home diversions. For the 2011 season, the Eagles did not don white for any of their home recreations.
For the 2012 season Nike took over from Reebok as the NFL’s authentic clothing licensee, yet the Eagles concluded that they would not be embracing Nike’s “World class 51” uniform innovation. Beside the Nike logo supplanting the Reebok logo, the main other change is the group wide correction of the NFL shield on the uniform (supplanting the NFL Equipment logo), other than that the garbs basically stay unaltered. The Eagles likewise resuscitated their dark exchange shirt.
For the 2013 season, the Eagles began to wear white jeans, as a substitute to their green jeans, with their white shirts, in the standard season.
For the 2014 season the Eagles have authoritatively received the “World class 51″ style uniform from Nike. As of late the group has talked about bringing back the “Kelly Green” garbs like the regalia worn in the 1960 NFL Championship season and which were last worn in the 2010 season opener versus Green Bay. Generally kelly green, silver and white had been the official group shading until the point that 1996 season when it changed to the ebb and flow “Midnight Green” outfits. Be that as it may, because of the NFL guidelines and confinements having a group experience a holding up period before any real uniform changes and adjustments can be made, it would in all likelihood be a long while before any uniform changes are of
