Celtics Display Original Championship Banners, First Time In Two Decades

Who cares about a little bit of mothballs?


The Boston Celtics are gearing up to display their original championship banners in honor of their 75th year as a professional team.

Celtics fans can walk down memory lane and be a part of the team’s history with a visit to the Boston Public Library.

“Banners are meant to be hung, so what greater space than here at the Library in the interior courtyard in the Boylston Street building, here at Copley Square?” Boston Public Library President David Leonard said, via The Boston Herald.

The Banners will be on display for the public to see for the first time in 26 years. And as the C’s ramp up their 2021-22 NBA season, there’s no better time to be in the presence of their legendary 17-time NBA championship flags.

Old, water-damaged cotton banners have their own nostalgic feel to them that’s for sure.

Some banners date back to the 1960s, as you can see from the wear and tear to the stitched up patches and discoloration.

“It’s just another way of bringing the city to life,” Leonard said.

The Celtics play the Toronto Raptors in their home opener Friday night at TD Garden.
