The Miami Flamingos were started in 1941 while the Nation was in WWII. German U-Boats were sighted off the shores of Miami and this led to a buildup of Military activity in and around Miami. A local businessman saw the opportunity to give the training soldiers something to do while on breaks and started the Flamingos. The team struggled with attendance outside of Military for the first 10 years of their existence nearly going bankrupt in 1949. After the war many soldiers and their families returned to the Miami area and the population boomed. The team flourished in this new environment.
The logo is heavily inspired by the Art Deco buildings in Miami as well as the bright neon colors of the city. The logo is very simple with few lines and only the word "Miami" included even though the team's official title is Miami Flamingos Soccer Club.
The uniforms feature the iconic flamingo from their crest blown up on the jersey. Its Pink on a teal background on the primary kit over white shorts. On the change they go all pink with a black flamingo.
