Meaning and History logo

Milwaukee Admirals Logo history


The original Milwaukee Admirals logo, which was introduced in advance of the 1977/78 season, featured quite a friendly and fun guy in a military uniform and with his hat over his eyes. The guy was holding a hockey stick.
The character probably lacked the competitive spirit required for a sports logo as it was soon replaced by a determined and aggressive “admiral” with a prominent nose and chin. He was wearing a saber.
In 1997, a logo with only the admiral’s head and the name of the team was adopted, which was replaced by a skeleton’s head logo in 2006. The current Milwaukee Admirals logo is a new, more professional take on the skeleton theme.
