Even though the Super Bowl logo is unveiled a full year in advance, the colors used in the Roman numerals have matched the participants in each of the last two seasons.
That includes the logo for Super Bowl LVI in Inglewood, California, which featured the Los Angeles Rams (yellow) and Cincinnati Bengals (orange), as well as the logo for Super Bowl LVII in Glendale, Arizona, which pitted the Kansas City Chiefs (red) against the Philadelphia Eagles (green).
There’s a strong chance that continues for another year, too, as the logo for Super Bowl LVIII prominently features purple and red, the colors used by the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers, who are the No. 1 seeds in the AFC and NFC, respectively.
While purely a coincidence, that fact is not lost on New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who said during a recent appearance on ‘The Pat McAfee Show’ he hopes the logo for Super Bowl LIX in New Orleans includes a shade of green.
“If the Super Bowl is Baltimore and San Fran(cisco), then I tell you what, that Super Bowl LIX emblem better have Jet green on it,” Rodgers said.
While the logo for Super Bowl LIX won’t be revealed until next month, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Rodgers get his wish, as the NFL could once again opt for Mardi Gras colors of purple, green and gold, just like it did for Super Bowl XXXI in New Orleans.
