Behind the Pittsburgh Steelers logo

From the American Iron and Steel Institute: “The Steelmark was originally created for United States Steel Corporation to promote the attributes of steel: yellow lightens your work; orange brightens your leisure; and blue widens your world. The logo’s meaning was later amended to represent the three materials used to produce steel: yellow for coal; orange for iron ore; and blue for steel scrap.”  This page also reveals why the logo is only on one side of the helmet.
