Hurricanes Logo

It has come to my attention that the logo on the third jersey is blatantly incorrect. According to this logo, the Carolina Hurricanes are actually the Carolina Tropical Storms.



If you look at what Hurricane warning flags actually are...



Someone clearly dropped the ball on this. Even Tulsa University got this right...



I'm not trolling or trying to start anything, but has this ever been brought up before? It really seems like some one has made a pretty serious mistake.

Yes, it has been brought before on 10 zillion occasions mostly on main boards, and yes, you are indeed trolling....

and if you are not, the hurricane was so strong tha it blew one of the flags off. It's called artistic concept.

It's been brought up before, and it's not a mistake. A single flag not only signals a storm warning, but also a hurricane watch. So in that way, it still makes sense.

Not to mention, Tulsa had the benefit of using the actual hurricane flag pole. Sticking two flags on a hockey stick doesn't quite work out the same aesthetically.

I like the theory that we are the only NHL team whose logo may or may not be exactly by the "letter of the law" perfect. Other teams have birds on skates and other such normal and everyday items that we all see in real life every day...


But thanks for the heads up... We will alert the media, FBI, and UN.

Also, Tulsa's logo isn't that great a logo aesthetically.

It's a very good looking logo, and the one flag does, as mentioned earlier, signify a hurricane watch as well.

And Caniac4Ever is right. Bird on skates with hands on the end of it's wings, you have a roman soldier for the sens, By your logic they should be the legionnaires (not a bad name actually).... And those are primary logos.

We could have done much, much worse.

Penguins don't skate either....it's a sports logo. Compare ours to that other logo and its obvious which looks better and is more professional....it's about looks not being all the way correct necessarily.

Those are different circumstances. If the penguins had a a bird that wasn't a penguin, then it would be the same situation. I'm not knocking the the logo, and now that I know that it also means a hurricane watch, it makes sense. I was simply wondering if anyone had ever noticed it before. Being from PA, the people that I have spoken to had never noticed it, so I was curious as to whether or not this was something that people knew about or not. It wouldn't be the first time something like that happened, I'm sure.

Last I checked, it's not. Penguins don't have hands. Unless they live near Chernobyl.

Congratulations on pointing out the fact that the cartoonish logos of American sports teams are not accurate representations of what they depict.
