The New England Patriots changed to the "Flying Elvis" logo on March 31, 1993. The so-called "Flying Elvis" logo features a streamlined head of a minuteman with a red, white and blue hat.
The New England Patriots first used a simple tricorner hat as a logo in the 1960 season. This was soon replaced by a drawing of a Revolutionary Minuteman in 1961 who is depicted to be hiking the ball. Nicknamed "Pat Patriot," it remained as the team's logo until it was replaced in 1993. The nickname Pat Patriot became the name of the New England team mascot. Along with shifting to the "Flying Elvis" logo, the team's primary official colors were also changed in 1993 from red to blue.
