Old logo

Old logo Edmonton Oilers
The earliest logo featured the word “Oilers” inside a circle, both given in royal blue. At the top, there was an orange oil drop inside another blue circle.
In 1980, both the oil drop and the circle grew darker. Another modification took place in 1987. And again, nothing but the colors was altered. This time, the orange shifted to a much more vivid shade, while the blue grew just a little bit lighter.
Ten years later, one more color shift in the Edmonton Oilers logo history took place. Now, blue was darkened to navy blue, while the drop became copper. Also, a bright red circle frame appeared around the logo.
