Oilers Primary Logo
The Edmonton Oilers have had a storied history in the NHL since their inception in 1972. One of the most iconic symbols associated with this team is its primary logo, which has gone through many iterations over the years. The original logo was designed by an artist named Bruce Smith and featured a blue circle with orange trim around it, as well as an orange “EDM” text at its center. This design lasted until 1990 when they changed to another classic look featuring five stars encircling a white hockey puck adorned with an orange “Oilers” script across it.
In 2003, however, things got even more interesting for Oilers fans when they unveiled yet another new primary logo that was inspired by Alberta's landscape and culture: two oil derricks crossed above a stylized version of Canada's flag – three red maple leaves on top of two vertical bars (red & white). This modern take on traditional Canadian imagery became incredibly popular among fans who appreciated its unique blend of style and symbolism; furthermore, it also proved to be quite successful from both marketing and merchandising perspectives too!
Today the Edmonton Oilers still use this same design for their official team logos but have added some subtle touches over time such as changing out certain colors or shapes depending on what season or event they are playing in/for (e.g., different colored stars during playoffs). Whether you're watching them play at home or away games alike - you can always spot those familiar crosses atop that beloved Canadian flag proudly representing one of hockey's greatest teams!
