Flames Primary Logo
The Calgary Flames have had a long and storied history, dating back to their inception in 1980. The team’s primary logo has gone through several iterations over the years, each reflecting the city's spirit and its fans.
Renowned graphic designer Brent Lynch designed the original logo in 1980 as part of an NHL expansion that included four new teams. It featured a flaming “C” with flames rising from it to form an “F” for Flames. This design remained unchanged until 1994 when changes were made to give it a more modern appeal; this included changing some colors, adding shading around specific elements, and making minor font size and shape adjustments.
In 2003, another redesign was undertaken, which brought about significant changes, including replacing the traditional red color scheme with black and silver tones while also incorporating more detailed artwork into the design, such as flames licking up from underneath letters or outlining them entirely; this version is still used today on all official merchandise sold by both retailers as well as online stores associated with Calgary Flames hockey club itself! In addition, minor tweaks have been made since then, like altering fonts slightly or adjusting shades here and there – but overall, they remain largely faithful to what was first created decades ago: a bold representation of passion burning brightly within every fan who proudly wears their favorite team's crest!
