Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL) logo

While the Deutsche Eishockey Liga logo has a modern tech feel, it seems to lack sports symbolism, so you may be left in doubt whether it belongs to a sports league, an internet provider or a household appliances manufacturer. On the whole, the logo looks like a metallic badge with 3D letters.

The combination of bright red and silver makes the logo eye-catching, yet refined at the same time. The large red letters “DEL” are given in a smooth italic font. While the part of a red ellipse seen in the top right corner presumably symbolizes a hockey puck, this idea probably wouldn’t cross your mind unless you’re told it’s a hockey league logo. The gradient textures applied both to the lettering and the silver outline adds much dimension.

DEL logo

Before the current emblem was adopted in 2011, the league went through at least three versions. The original DEL logo was a blue flag with a red stripe on the top. You could see the abbreviation “DEL” in white over the blue field.

The next version (1997) featured the letters “DEL” in blue over the white background. This time, there was a gradient texture applied to the name of the league. A puck could be seen in the middle of the “D.” In 2001, the logo became flat, while the lettering below was replaced by “Die 1. Bundesliga.”
