The Baltimore Ravens are a professional American football team based in Baltimore. The Ravens compete in the National Football League (NFL) as a member club of the American Football Conference (AFC) North division. The team plays its home games at M&T Bank Stadium and is headquartered in Owings Mills, Maryland.
The club was established in 1996, after Art Modell, who was then the owner of the Cleveland Browns, announced plans in 1995 to relocate the franchise from Cleveland to Baltimore. As part of a settlement between the league and the city of Cleveland, Modell was required to leave the Browns’ history, team colors, and records in Cleveland for a replacement team and replacement personnel that would resume play in 1999. In return, he was allowed to take his own personnel and team to Baltimore, where such personnel would then form an expansion team. The team is now owned by Steve Bisciotti and valued at $2.98 billion, making the Ravens the 33rd-most valuable sports franchise in the world.

Baltimore Ravens Logo: The Baltimore Sun ran a poll showing three designs for a new logo. Fans participating in the poll expressed a preference for a raven’s head in profile over other designs. Art Modell announced that he would honor this preference but still wanted a letter “B” to appear somewhere in the design. The raven has an aggressive look and a high aesthetic value, with bright and sharp colors making the design very memorable and visually distinctive.
Baltimore Ravens Colors: The Baltimore Ravens colors are purple, black, and metallic gold.
Baltimore Ravens Mascot: Poe is the mascot of the Baltimore Ravens of the National Football League. He is named after the writer and Baltimore, Maryland resident, Edgar Allan Poe.
