HARTFORD, Conn.—Connecticut's new United Football League team will wear gold and blue, with a logo that features an eagle between two golden pillars.

The Hartford Colonials showed off the look Monday at the XL Center.

The eagle is perched between the pillars, clutching a football in its talons to form the letter "H." Behind that design is a shield outlined with a blue letter "C" dotted with white stars. The word "Hartford" is split behind the "H," with "HART" on the left side, and "Ford" on the right.

Coach Chris Palmer says the team's gold helmet represents the dome of the state Capitol, and the logo is meant to represent the city and state in a classy and distinguished manner.

The UFL franchise moved to Hartford from New York in the offseason. It will play home games at Rentschler Field in East Hartford.
