Teams that don’t wear a color that’s on their logo?

Dolphins dark aqua

Vikings black

Jaguars gold(s)

Ravens red

49ers black

 

Vikings have a black face mask, that has to count.  

 

I hadn't realized that the Dolphins eliminated the darker blue stripes from their helmets when they removed it from the jersey numbers. Good for them.

The Tennessee Titans have red stars on their logo, but it doesn't appear on their uniforms, aside from the maker's mark.

 

They have red stars inside the back collar, too (though I know that’s stretching it).

The 49ers did have a black alternate jersey for a few years this decade. UGH.

If you want to consider Australia's flag as their "logo"...

...yet their national teams wear the country's 'national colors' of green and gold:

Even though the pirates use the P as the main logo now, the sleeve patch pirate has a red bandanna on *runs away before someone posts that early 2000s red vest*

There are obviously multiple examples of this, but it generally doesn't bother me all that much.

 

In particular, I think it is excusable when the logo color is part of a piece of equipment or the depiction of an animal (e.g., St. Louis Cardinals beak and bat, Celtics brown basketball).

Australia’s not the only one; other countries nave national colors or sporting colors that don’t appear on their flags.

Plus the US FWWC 2015 edition ... 3 cheers for the Volt, White, and Black!

The odd color out for the Yankees is royal blue.

And before that, light blue.

They've never incorporated either shade into uniforms.

True.  But mercifully, that was a one-off.

Hamilton Tiger-Cats have red in the logo.

They did use red as a drop shadow on the late 2000s yellow jersey:

Topps baseball cards of the 1950s and early 1960s depicted the bat-and-hat in blue, with a blue bat.

There are dozens of examples of this in the college ranks, and I won't even list ones that use black or gray outlines in the logo. Among those at the FBS level: Bowling Green (light brown), Georgia Southern (gold), Georgia Tech (black), Kansas (yellow), Kent State (brown), Louisiana-Lafayette (yellow), Memphis (orange), New Mexico State (gray), Ohio (brown), Stanford (green), UAB (red), UNLV (skintone) and UTEP (gray).

I should add skintone to my list of excusable instances (e.g., Celtics leprechaun).

I acknowledge that.  I was thinking about the present when it was mentioned.

 

They also used to wear some red striping in their yellow pants many years ago:

Can that uniform get anything else on it? manufacturer: “we can do numbers, tv numbers, sleeve stripes, sleeve logo, contrasting colors on collar, 2 patches, piping, nameplates, and a name above the front numbers. What do you want?” team: yes
