Description
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 (c. 1974) is for the Houston Rockets franchise in the National Basketball Association. The logo displayed on the pennant was used by the Rockets from the 1972-73 season through the 1994-95 season.
