Meaning and history

Philadelphia Flyers Logo history

There are constant clubs, which only slightly refine their logos throughout the years, and there is the Philadelphia Flyers hockey club, which still uses the emblem, created for it in 1967, with almost no modifications at all.

1967 — 1999

Philadelphia Flyers Logo 1967

The original Philadelphia Flyers’ visual identity, introduced in 1967, was designed by Sam Ciccone and boasted an interesting rounded shape with a stylized wing on its left. The image featured black color as the main and was outlined in white and block, with the smaller white circle in the middle of the emblem’s rounded part, and a solid orange dot in its center.

The whole winged composition resembles the letter “P”, for Philadelphia, and the whit encircle with an orange dot stands for the hockey puck. Though the symbolism of the team’s logo is pretty obvious and simple, the badge looks unique and progressive and became one of the most recognizable and iconic hockey logos in the world.

1999 — Today

In the 1990s the legendary logo was slightly refined, with its “feathers” made a bit more square. The new geometry made the badge look more powerful and masculine, and showed the ability of the club to change and grow without forgetting its roots.

Another change was done to the color palette, which is still composed of black, white, and orange, but with a more intense and bright orange dot, which evoke a sense of energy, strength, and determination, and creates a great contrast, which makes the logo of Philadelphia Flyers stand out on any background.

Color

Color Flyers Logo

All the three colors of the team’s official palette (orange, black, and white) are featured in its logotype. The club owners wanted to find a warm color, but red could be already seen in many sports logos. So, one of the founders, Bill Putman, suggested orange, as it was the official color of the University of Texas, where he used to study.
