The Minnesota Vikings unveiled an upgraded version of their Norseman logo on Thursday. No, the team isn't calling it a complete change per say, but rather an enhancement instead.The logo, which has been around since the team's inception in 1961, features five "subtle" new enhancements from its old version. They are as follows:1) Horn ShapeThe shape of the horns has been adjusted and the shading in the horns has changed.2) Horn BaseThe base of the horn now resembles the horn on the players’ helmets.3) Face DetailThicker lines have been added to the mustache and face.4) Vikings GoldThe Vikings Gold is now brighter and less brassy.5) The BraidThe braid has been shortened, resulting in a reduced logo height.The alterations to the logo are being made in an effort to help tidy up the Vikings' image ahead of plans to move into a new stadium. The team states that merchandise with the enchanced Norseman logo could be available as soon as next month.More changes are expected to take place in the future, according to the team.We are looking forward to many exciting changes for our team and fans in the next few years, leading up to the opening of our new stadium. These logo enhancements are just the beginning...Can't wait.Via Vikings.com
