The New Orleans Hornets announced they will be changing their team name to the Pelicans. The change will occur following the 2012-13 season and will be accompanied by a red, blue and gold color scheme that will replace the current teal, purple and blue design. Below is some New Orleans Pelicans apparel designed by Sportiqe. The collection is available on the New Orleans Hornets website.
Louisiana is known as the “Pelican State.” The brown pelican is the state bird and it adorns both the state flag and state seal. New Orleans also had a Double A minor league baseball known as the Pelicans for more than 70 years. Owner Tom Benson said "It was very important to me and our staff that we change the name of this club to something that represented New Orleans, Louisiana. I’m pumped up about the Pelicans.”
