 Uniform and logo

 

uniformhouston texans logo

The Texans uniform is a dark blue jersey, sometimes white, with a red trim design. The white pants are the most worn with the blue jersey. The team’s helmet is a blue dark with the Texans logo in it.

The Huston Texans logo has been the same since the team was established, probably due to the fact that they are merely 13 years old into the NFL. This logo is recognized by the bull’s head of blue and red color divided into two parts; the left part is red, while the right one is blue and has a white star as the bull’s eye, clearly depicting the United Staes flag colors and symbols.
