The team was called the Pirates (just like Pittsburgh's baseball team) from the time it was founded in 1933 until 1940. In 1940, the team held a contest for a new name. The winning entry was for the name "Steelers," reflecting Pittburgh's history as the nation's top steel-producing city. The team's logo on its helmet is the "Steelmark" logo created by U.S. Steel for the American Iron and Steel Institute. The only change is that the Steelers' logo changes the word "Steel" to "Steelers". This logo has been on the team's helmet since 1962.
