Sabres Primary Logo
The Buffalo Sabres have had a long and varied history with their primary logo. The original logo, introduced in 1970 when the team joined the NHL, featured a white buffalo head on an orange circle with blue trim. This design remained unchanged until 1996, when it was replaced by a new logo featuring two crossed swords behind a charging buffalo in navy blue and gold colors. The following significant change to the primary logo occurred in 2006 when they changed from two swords crossing behind the charging buffalo to one sword running through it while keeping all other elements intact.
The most recent changes were made during the 2011-12 season as part of their 40th-anniversary celebration; this included changing back to using two crossed swords instead of just one but also making some minor tweaks like adding black outlines around both elements along with making subtle changes to how everything is arranged within its circular backdrop. Finally, for the 2017-18 season, they decided once again to go back into tweaking mode - this time focusing on refining details such as reducing the size of the outer circle so that more focus would be put onto the principal components (i.e., buffalos & swords).
Overall, even though there have been several changes over the years, what remains constant is that Buffalo Sabres' primary logos always feature some combination of charging bison/buffalo and cross sword(s); thus providing fans something familiar yet still fresh each time any modifications are made!
