How did they come up with the Logo for the Flyers, anyone know?
In Full Spectrum" by Jay Greenberg he says "The team's logo and uniform were commissioned to Mel Richman Inc., a Philadelphia advertising and graphics design firm."
He continues "In early correspondence, Bill Putnam (original investor in the Flyers) suggested something like a wing skate but artist Sam Ciccone, who drew the logo, doesn't remember any specific instructions. Ciccone drew four wings on a stylized P to make it fly and an orange dot inside the P to represent a hockey puck. The logo was simple, clever and reflective of both the nickname of the team and the city it represented. Ciccone did other designs but when the choices were spread out on (Ed) Snider's sofa for his (and others) consideration, the winged P was the clear choice."
