Maine Mariners Logo

The Alaska Aces have relocated to Portland, Maine to begin the 2018-19 season as the Maine Mariners. It is the newest ice hockey team in the ECHL.

The name “Mariners” came from the Name-the-Team contest. It was announced at the end of September in 2017. A month later the club revealed the logo and the color palette.

Maine Mariners logo history

It is an utterly new logo. At first sight it may seem that it consists of only the name of the team and two elements ‒ the letter “M” and Neptune’s trident. Actually, it is full of imagery and symbolism. All the elements are directly related to the state of Maine.

The letter “M” and the trident form the abbreviation ME that stands for Maine. The middle spear of the trident is stylized to look like a pine tree. It is a tribute to the evergreens for which Maine has acquired the nickname “the Pine Tree State”.

The star is the same as in the state flag. The lighthouse, a subtle image depicted in silver on the letter “M”, reminds of Maine’s historical lighthouses.

The colors are not without meaning either. The blue color implies the sea. The green indicates to the luxurious forestry which the state is famous for.

The logo shows the Mariners’ desire to build strong links with the community.
