Pat Patriot is the mascot of the New England Patriots, a National Football League (NFL) franchise based in Foxborough, Massachusetts. He is depicted as a soldier of the American Revolution with his wife, Patty Patriot. The logo version of Pat wears a tricorne hat and a Continental Army uniform. This was the Patriots' official insignia until 1993, when it was replaced by the current logo. He was created by Worcester Telegram - Evening Gazette cartoonist Phil Bissell in 1960.

The live mascot Pat, still employed, wears the Patriots' home uniform (currently navy blue jersey with silver pants). He has represented the Patriots as the team's mascot in Super Bowls: XXXVI, XXXVIII, XXXIX, XLII, XLVI, XLIX and LI. Currently, there are two people who portray the mascot, according to the team's Media Guide: Gregory Cirrone and Adam Visbaras.[1]
