The Atlanta Falcons were founded in 1965 and also joined the NFL that year. Football has been very popular in Atlanta from the start. The Falcons were not able to celebrate any notable successes in the first years, and it was only in 1971 that they had more victories than defeats for the first time. 1978 followed the first playoff participation, in 1980 and 1982 two more participations, but the Dirty Birds could not win any of the three games. After that, it continued until 1991. The Falcons moved back into the playoffs and were able to win a playoff game for the first time (at that time with Dion Sanders). In 1998 the Falcons reached the Super Bowl (Super Bowl XXXIII) for the first time in their history, but lost to the Denver Broncos with 34-19.
In 2002 Arthur Blank took over the franchise as owner. Since then, the team from Atlanta has continued to develop and was able to reach the post season more often. In 2008, the Falcons drafted their current quarterback Matt Ryan in third place. In 2010, the Falcons ended their season 13: 3, making them the second best team in the NFL. In 2011 the Falcons drafted their current superstar, wide receiver Julio Jones.
In 2016, after a record-breaking season, the Falcons reach the Super Bowl for the second time in their history. The dramatic game seemed to have already been won, but in the end the Falcons had to defeat the New England Patriots by 34-28.

The throwback or vintage logo is available in two versions, the original from 1966 without a frame, from 1990 a white frame was added around the black falcon. This logo can usually be found on Throwback Caps. Alternate or Woodmark logos made from caps are less common.
