VIDEO: Evolution Of The Burgundy & Gold

Posted by Andrew Walker on December 8, 2012 – 6:00 pm

Here’s an interesting video from NFL Films that gives the background of the Washington Redskins’ team colors and uniforms.

Here’s some tidbits from the piece, which is entitled “The Evolution of Colors:”

– The Redskins’ colors of burgundy and gold were chosen by the team’s first owner, George Preston Marshall.

– The colors are “regal,” yet “colorful and vibrant” enough to be different, which was important to Marshall, according to one historian.

– Marshall introduced the first graphic logos to jerseys in the early 1930s, and moved the logo to the shoulders by the mid 1930s.

– Other than minor modernizations, the Redskins haven’t changed their current uniforms’ look in three decades.

Here’s renderings of the Redskins’ uniforms through the years:
