The 2014-2015 season will mark the Toronto Raptors' 20th anniversary of the team's expansion into the NBA, so it's only natural that the organization released a logo to celebrate the milestone.


Purple—the team's primary color for 11 yearsmakes a return on the logo. The anniversary logo does a great job of honoring the past and present. The organization incorporated the team's old font and jagged pinstripes with the team's current claw logo.

Toronto will sport some variation of the logo on patches next season. The team also announced that 20th anniversary events will be revealed on a later date.
