Schooners Primary Logo
The Atlantic Schooners are a Canadian Football League (CFL) team based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The team was founded in 1982 and is one of the most beloved franchises in the league. As part of their long-standing tradition, they have an iconic primary logo that has been used for decades to represent the franchise and its fans.
The original Atlantic Schooners logo was designed by local artist Peter MacGregor-Scott back in 1982 when he submitted his design as part of a contest held by Maritime Life Insurance Company to come up with a new uniform concept for the fledgling CFL squad. His winning submission featured two schooner sails crossed over each other inside an oval frame set against a navy blue background with gold trimming around it; this became known as “the double sail” or “double cross” logo which still remains today as one of Canada's most recognizable sports logos ever created!
Over time, minor adjustments were made to enhance its look such as changing out different colors like green or red while also adding subtle details like stars surrounding it but none could detract from what makes this particular emblem so unique - its simplicity yet strong symbolism behind each element within it: namely how both sails stand for strength & stability while also representing unity between all those who support them no matter where they may be located geographically speaking across Canada's vast landscape! Additionally, there is even deeper meaning embedded into every aspect including how gold stands not only for wealth but also courage & leadership qualities required on any successful football field mission too...all combined together make up why many consider "the double sail" such an important piece of Canadiana culture overall!
In conclusion, after nearly four decades since first being unveiled back during Maritime Life Insurance Company’s competition way back when; The Atlantic Schooners Primary Logo continues to remain relevant today and will likely continue doing so well into future years ahead thanks largely due not just because people find visually appealing but more importantly because everyone can relate personally towards something much greater than themselves – true pride found within our nation itself through sport we all love watching week after week regardless if cheering at home stadium games or following along remotely via TV broadcasts etcetera… GO SCHOONERS!!!
