Hornets Alternate Logo
The Charlotte Hornets (formerly the New Orleans Pelicans) have a long and storied history of alternate logo designs. From their original teal, purple, and white color scheme to their current black, gold, and teal look, they have always had creative logos that reflect the team’s identity.
One of the most memorable iterations was from 2002-2006; it featured a hornet with its wings spread wide in front of an outline of the North Carolina state flag. This logo was especially popular among fans as it represented both Charlotte’s home state pride as well as its basketball team spirit. The next iteration came in 2013 when they changed to a more modernized design featuring two overlapping circles with “Charlotte Hornets” written inside them in bold font against an orange background - this one still remains today!
Finally, for the 2016-2017 season onwards we saw another change - this time back to something akin to what we saw during the 2002-2006 period but slightly tweaked for modern times: A fierce hornet set against a blue sky backdrop hovering above a North Carolina silhouette along with words “Charlotte Hornets Basketball Club" underneath all within circle frame which has become a recognizable symbol throughout NBA world since then! It is clear that these different versions represent how far the franchise has come over the years while keeping its true essence alive at the same time – something every fan can appreciate no matter where they are located or who their favorite player may be!
