1961 New England Patriots Artwork: Snow Heather Raglan Crew

In 1959, Boston business executive Billy Sullivan was awarded the eighth and final franchise of the developing American Football League (AFL). The following winter, locals were allowed to submit ideas for the Boston football team's official name. The most popular choice – and the one that Sullivan selected – was the "Boston Patriots," with "Patriots" referring to those colonists of the Thirteen Colonies who rebelled against British control during the American Revolution. Immediately thereafter, artist Phil Bissell of The Boston Globe developed the "Pat Patriot" logo. The NFL and AFL merged in 1970. The following year, the Patriots moved to a new stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts. As a result of the move, they announced they would change their name from the Boston Patriots to the Bay State Patriots. The name was rejected by the NFL, and the team officially announced they would change its geographic name to New England.
