Logo

I have a weird obsession with sports team logos, although I am in no shape or form a graphic designer. There was just a post on icethetics which included some fan designs for Flyers logos.

Now don't get me wrong, most of the designs where complete crap (even worse than the logo of the Oklahoma City Thunder) and I never ever want the Logo to change. It has become iconic in my mind and there is no replacement for it, not even that crap with the metallic borders that was put out.

However, this one I think could actually be a good alternate logo:



It has very much a similar style to the P-Wing including the feathers, it builds a P including the orange accent in the hole and it creates the head of an eagle which binds it with another sports franchise from Philadelphia.

The Liberty Bell would be okay for a shoulder/secondary logo or a small patch somewhere, but there is ZERO point in having an eagle logo.

I'd be cool with the bell, but the eagle p-wing looks too much like the Eagles.

I'd like it a little more if the "feathers" extended a little further and the "beak" was rounded more. Basically our current logo, but with the "eye" on this logo. Also down with the Liberty Bell.

Anything is better then that weird 3-D Flying P logo.

Leave the "Flying P" alone!

The Liberty Bell would be cool.

The liberty bell as a patch would be nice, but I'm not sure I would want a huge one on the front of an alternate.

i'd be ok with a liberty bell patch.

on another note, have we ever had a black shirt with orange shoulders?

It looks like a flying stealth bomber. The liberty bell logo reminds me of this:

Best 30 mins of TV a week. I try to expose as many of my friends to it as possible because some people don't watch it (I blame that since its on FX).

Had to go over to Icethetics and click on the image to blow it up, but it's a stealth fighter 'whooshing'

Now if the stealth fighter weren't retired, or if it 'whooshed' in real life, or had ANYTHING to do with Philadelphia, it could be appropriate.


As for all the logos. I don't get it. The Flyers have an iconic logo. You see it, you know exactly what it is, and what it represents. Why change it? Does anyone ask the Yankees about changing the NY logo?

I also don't think the Flyers should have a regular shoulder patch. If something special happens in and around the city (Bicentennial for instance), or for the club (round number anniversary, All-Star Game, etc), then they don't need a patch. Leave that for lesser teams, like the Rangers.
