A Red, White, and Blue Day for Red, White, and Blue Day

On this Independence Day, I take you back in time to see the most patriotic part of Caps history; their logos/jerseys.

The Caps logos and jerseys have almost always showcased red, white, and/or blue as their main colors. Here is how the logos/jerseys have changed throughout the years.

The Caps started out with this logo, which is obviously very similar to the current one. This logo (and jersey) was used from 1974, when the club began as an expansion team, until 1995. It is the longest used logo in team history.

After 1995, the history gets a little weirder.

This was the Caps logo until 2002.

And this was their logo until 2007, when the Caps adopted their current logo and uniform. All this is fine, but the weird part comes with the uniforms.

From 1995 to 2003, the Caps home uniform looked like this or really close to this:

This was their road uniform from 1995 to 2000:

And this was their road uniform from 2000 to 2003:

From 2003 to 2007, the home and road uniforms were switched, because of the new rule that white jerseys had to be road.

And in 2007, we got today's jerseys, those red, white, and blue beauties, reminding us why, once and for all, Washington DC (and it's sports) is the most patriotic place in the USA.

Happy Independence Day to all!
