Kontinental Hockey League logo

The logotype of one of the world’s most known hockey leagues, the Kontinental Hockey League, has gone through only two notable modifications since the organization was established in 2008. It has preserved its core structure intact, while the palette went through a major overhaul in 2016.

Kontinental Hockey League (KHL) logo history

The original Kontinental Hockey League logo, similar to the current one, featured a shield with three angles and rounded sides. The filling was white, while the outline was light blue. Apart from the white background, there were four fields inside the shield. The two larger blue fields on the top featured the analogs of the letters “K” and “L” in the Russian alphabet. Between them, a smaller triangular field in blue could be seen. Below, a large red field housing the analog of the letter “H” in the Russian alphabet was placed.

In advance of the 2013/14 playing season, the KHL logo was slightly refreshed. The structure remained unchanged, but gradient textures were applied to the blue and red fields.

An updated shield was introduced by the beginning of the 2016/17 playing season. Here, the palette was replaced by a combination of black and silver. The silver fields had a gradient texture because of which they adopted a 3D feel.
