The Atlanta Hawks currently have a uniform contract with Adidas. We have 12 basketball uniforms in our database for the Atlanta Hawks and are working to add more to Uniform Critics. Feel free to contact us with any uniform designs for this team that we may be missing.


It appears Atlanta has settled on its current red, white and blue color scheme after years of red, yellow, white and even a splash of lime green in the early 1970s.

After moving from St. Louis to Atlanta in 1968, the Hawks donned white, red and powder blue for two seasons before Pete Maravich made the lime green, royal blue and white combos with psychedelic piping in 1971 and 1972. From the fall of ’72 until 1995, Atlanta’s primary logo was the “Pac-Man Hawk”, the head of a bird enclosed in a circle.

The franchise saw a major uniform overhaul in 1982, transitioning from a basic white and red style to a wrapped wordmark across the chest with hints of yellow and thick-striped shorts. The “Dominique Wilkins” era uniforms ended in 1993. Two years later, the Hawks were one of the NBA’s first teams to move to color fade away jerseys — a unique look that saw black tops fade into red at the stomach then back to black near the bottom of the shorts.

Atlanta kept its “HAWKS” wordmark but a graphic of a soaring bird was added whose wings wrapped around to the back, nearly touching numerals. The fades lasted four years before yet another redesign was unveiled, a back to basics approach with wide ribcage piping, a “HAWKS” wordmark on the fronts of jerseys and the addition of a yellow alternate.

Atlanta’s current combinations — similar to what the Braves wear a few miles away at Turner Field — have contrasting vents and piping on jerseys and shorts. The team now uses “ATLANTA” instead of “HAWKS” as the road wordmark and included a shortened “ATL” look on red alternates.

Current uniforms made their debut in 2007 along with two new graphics, a primary soaring bird image clutching a basketball in its talons and an alternate logo that resembles a dive-bombing Atlanta Falcon.
