Introduction: Los Angeles Angels
Los Angeles Angels (1961-1965), California Angels (1965-1996), Anaheim Angels (1997-2004), Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (2005-2015), Los Angeles Angels (2016-present)

     The Los Angeles Angels are a Major League Baseball (MLB) expansion franchise formed in 1961. They play in Anaheim, California (a suburb of Los Angeles), as a member of the American League (AL) West division. They played their first home games at Wrigley Field (1961), then moved to Chavez Ravine (1962-1965), and finally to their Angel Stadium (1966-present). The modern team franchise was purchased by Gene Autry, the famous singing cowboy actor, in 1961. Their name, based on the Spanish Los Angeles (the Angels), dates back to a string of earlier Pacific Coast minor league baseball teams playing in the Los Angeles area since the late 1890s.
      The modern Angels have only played in one World Series to date representing the American League in 2002, where they defeated the San Francisco Giants of the National League. They have won 9 West Division titles in 1979, 1982, 1986, 2004, 2005, 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2014, but have never made it back to the World Series again since 2002.
      It should be noted that in the early years baseball teams used pennants rather than flags (hence the practice of calling championships winning the pennant) and there were a host of unofficial manufacturer's variants of these and later fan flags marketed for the Angels and their fans. They included flags, banners, and pennants too numerous to all be shown here.

They played a best of seven series at Pacific Bell Park in San Francisco and Edison International Field of Anaheim in Anaheim. The Angels defeated the Giants, four games to three, to win their first World Series championship.

These manufacturer variants show a verity of interpretations as to the number of stars and color schemes in the cantons. The number and color of the stripes also vary, as well as the length and ratio of the flags.

Los Angeles Angels Yacht Flags and Pennants
Manufactures Variants

For those baseball fans who own boats and want to display their team loyalty afloat, flag manufacturers have now made flags like these available for them. The flags take the form of either a broad pennant or a square boat flag with either a team name, cap or team logo near the hoist. Each uses the individual team's colors in their designs.
Note: Because of the small size of these nautical broad pennants, usually about a foot tall (approximately 30.48 centimeters) with differing lengths, they have also gained popularity as "golf cart" flags. It should also be noted that a broad pennant, or any other flag shape, is only called a "burgee" if it designates an organized boating club.
