Cougars Primary Logo
The Detroit Cougars are one of the oldest teams in the NHL, and their primary logo has a long history. The original logo was designed by team founder James Norris Sr. and featured a green cougar head on top of a red shield with white trim. This design was used from 1926 to 1930 when it was replaced by an updated version featuring two crossed hockey sticks behind the cougar head. This design lasted until 1934 before being changed again to feature only the crossed sticks without any other imagery.
In 1935, this logo underwent its most drastic change yet as it became more stylized with curved lines instead of straight ones and added stars around both sides of the shield for decoration purposes. It also included black outlines around all elements on its surface which gave it an even sharper look than before; however, this version would not last long as another update came five years later in 1940 that removed all decorative elements except for four small stars at each corner along with some minor tweaks such as slightly different colors within certain parts like those found inside or outside borders etcetera which was meant to give viewers better contrast between them while still keeping overall appearance consistent across various media formats (print/web).
Finally, after decades worth of changes over time we now have what is known today -the modern-day Detroit Cougars Primary Logo-which features three large stars above the center circle containing an iconic image depicting a fierce-looking feline face surrounded by laurel leaves below symbolizing strength courage & determination needed to succeed competitive world professional sports leagues like National Hockey League (NHL). It's simple yet powerful enough to make a statement on behalf entire organization while staying true to classic roots established nearly a century ago when first introduced back in 1926!
