Meaning and history

Illinois-Chicago Flames Logo

Since 1992, the Illinois-Chicago Flames logo has been absolutely consistent in its core imagery. Apart from a subtle modification of the color scheme, the logo has remained unchanged.

Both the old and the current emblem feature a stylized flame burning above the lettering “UIC Flames.” In 2008, the palette of the UIC Flames logo grew softer, nobler.
