South Carolina Stingrays Logo

Meaning and history

South Carolina Stingrays Logo history

Over the years of the team’s existence their logo has evolved from a realistic, then a cartoonish representation of a stingray to a modern stylized version.

The first logo features a white blue-tailed stingray holding a hockey stick. The map of South Carolina in red is in the background indicating the Stingrays’ location. For an even greater identity there is the wordmark “South Carolina” below.

The cartoon-like wicked stingray biting through a hockey stick replaced the previous logo in 1999. All the club’s official colors are represented in this version ‒ red, navy blue, silver/ grey and white.

The current mark seems to be the best version of the three. The stingray in red, blue and white is placed on a red and white shield outlined in blue and grey. “South Carolina” is in white simple font, while the stylized “STINGTRAYS” appears in grey and white and is also outlined in blue and grey.
