The first Toronto Lacrosse Club was started by George Massey in 1867. The Toronto Rock team does not have such a long history, but it joined the NLL as the first-ever Canadian franchise. Six NLL Championships have been won by the Toronto Rock, who have played in the league since 1999. They are the ones who have won the most league titles in history. The Toronto Rock is the first team from Canada to be placed in the Eastern Conference. The team has made a major contribution to Toronto’s sports sphere.

1998/99 – 2001/02

One of the elements of the logo is the CN Tower, which is a TV tower located in Toronto and the world’s tallest free-standing completed concrete structure. It is pictured as a robot-like character that is playing on a guitar with flying music notes completing the picture. There is also a prominent Canadian symbol, a maple leaf of a red color. It has golden, diagonal streaks that add a feeling of movement. The name is added at the bottom of the logo. It has “Rock” printed in extra large letters of light gray color with a blue outline and “Toronto” added in front in a contrasting yellow. The logo turned out very symbolic and bold.

The designers included some of the elements from the original version, mainly the maple leaf and along with the “Toronto Rock” inscription. Both are barely adjusted. The leaf has a notably darker color and has a dark shade behind it. The inscription is placed in such a way that it covers the leaf about halfway. Instead of a lacrosse stick, they simply added the word “Lacrosse” in blue all caps. The logo turned out relatively minimalistic and modern.

2005/06 – 2008/09

The emblem looks very busy compared to the earlier version as designers desired to include multiple meaningful elements. At the very back, there are two crossed lacrosse sticks. At the very top, there is a familiar red maple leaf. Across the center, there is a blue banner with the full name of the team printed in two lines. The top line is done using all caps and a simple, sans-serif font. The bottom line features a much larger inscription with a more daring font with pointed serifs. There is also another bold detail that brings together all the colors. It is a striking monogram where the “R” is split at the top to create an illusion that there is also a “T.” It features a black, yellow, and red color palette that creates an image of a strong and powerful team.

2009/10 – Today

Toronto Rock Logo

Although the team’s logo has changed several times throughout their history, there is one element that connects them all – a maple leaf. The maple leaf in the logo indicates the significance of this sport in Canada. In fact, it has been considered a national sport for many decades. This particular logo version looks almost exactly the same as the one introduced in 2002. The red and gray colors got lighter. In addition, the blue outline around the leaf was removed and the leaf seems to be positioned slightly lower, hiding more behind the name.

Font and Color

With the exception of one logo, there are two fonts that are used by the Toronto Rock team. They use a relatively simple font without serifs. Instead, the inscription is embellished with an outline. The “Rock” portion is the star of each emblem. It features a custom inscription that is not only symmetrical but also has a silver metallic finish with a blue outline. The other logo also has a bold font for this line.

The team went for three main colors for its logo. There is a powerful and strong red as well as a neutral metallic silver. The other color is blue, which is associated with stability and confidence. The logo also has a splash of yellow, which is the color that brings energy and optimism. A black is used to create an accent and underline the details.
