Bert Rose and Norm Van Brocklin both knew Hubenthal from their days with the Los Angeles Rams organization. Hubenthal also designed the original Norseman logo.
From the team’s debut in 1961 to 1995, the Vikings’ logos and uniforms essentially remained the same. Reflecting Minnesota’s Scandinavian cultural heritage, one of the team’s two primary logos consists of a profile of a blond Norseman, while the other consists of a white Viking horn.
