Baltimore CFL question

I'm just taking a shot in the dark here, but I would guess the three stars stand for Maryland being the 3rd state to ratify the U.S. Constitution. That is just a guess, but seems logical.

Scratch this idea, Maryland was the 7th State in the Union.

Can't say I know this one, but did you know:

Baltimore is the only city in history to win a football championship in 3 different leagues.

NFL: Colts 1958, 1959, 1971 & Ravens 2001

USFL: Stars 1985

CFL: Stallions 1995

The team was originally owned by 3 general partners.

By the time the first game was played though, one (Jim Speros, I believe his name was) had assumed majority control.

Thta was the owner's name--but I've never heard an explanation for 3 stars...

Here's another real wild guess....although it has nothing to do with the three, maybe it has to do with honoring the Baltimore Stars. Since you have the horse symbolizing the old Colts name, maybe the stars in the logo represent the Stars team.

Okay, you have an American CFL team playing close to the nation's capital, and the Stallion's mane is, in fact, stripes. Do you really need an explanation for the stars now?

I'm not saying the ideas posted here aren't good ones, bewcause they are. I'm just saying the most obvious answer is right there for ya.

Here is the definitive answer.The stars represented the 3 pro teams in Baltimore history. The AAFL Colts, THE BALTIMORE COLTS!!!!! and the Baltimore Stars. I still have my Baltimore Colts (CFL) t-shirt which was only sold for about a month until the NFL sued them because it would have created "confusion" with those other colts. The team had 4 names in its short but great history. The Colts, the CFL's, the CFL Colts, and the Stallions.

This is the correct meaning/explanation of the 3 stars. I remember hearing this when the team first came to Baltimore.
