You’re a genius if you can spot the hidden secret of the optical illusion in the Carolina Panthers logo

NFL fans discovered a shocking secret meaning in the Carolina Panthers logo, and it’s intriguing.

A Reddit user shared a post claiming the Panthers logo was shaped to resemble the outline of the North and South Carolina borders.

When you first look at the logo, it’s not that easy to spot.

The panther form doesn’t exactly fit between the two states.

Or if at all. But I digress…

However, if you hold the logo next to a map of the United States and move toward the Atlantic Seaboard, you’ll see a vaguely similar outline of the Carolinas.

Another Reddit user and NFL fan decided to test the theory and created one gif to show the resemblance.

They placed the logo over the two states on the map and enlarged the image.

It was eerily similar, but you could still argue that it’s a coincidence since a large portion of the logo still sticks out from the edges.

However, the Carolina logo isn’t the only hidden visual image in sports.

It’s a hidden “F” in the Atlanta Falcons logo as it sits in the center and is surrounded by feathers.

The Philadelphia Eagles also have a hidden letter in their logo.

Philadelphia has an “E” on the back of the Eagles’ heads.

There are dozens of examples of hidden images in logos, and it’s crazy to see how we always see and miss these elements.
