New York Knicks Pennant


Pennants have been prominently featured in the history of American professional sports. Inscribed with logos, championship seasons, or other notable feats, teams often flew pennants atop their stadiums to display their success. Sports fans have also used pennants to show their allegiance and loyalty to a particular team.

This pennant is for the New York Knickerbockers franchise in the National Basketball Association. The logo displayed on the pennant is a slight variation of the logo used by the Knickerbockers from the 1964-65 season through the 1975-76 season.
