Falcons Primary Logo
The Detroit Falcons were a professional hockey team that played in the National Hockey League (NHL) from 1930 to 1932. The team's primary logo was an image of a falcon perched atop a shield, with two crossed sticks behind it. This logo has gone through several iterations over the years and is still used by the Detroit Red Wings today as part of their heritage uniform program.
The original version of this logo featured only black-and-white colors, which reflected the simplicity and classic nature of early NHL logos at that time. However, when it was adopted by its successor organization –the Red Wings– they added red accents to make it more vibrant and modernized for their fans’ enjoyment. Additionally, they changed up some other parts such as adding white stars around its head instead of having them directly on top like before; also making its beak slightly longer than before while keeping everything else intact including two crossed sticks behind it alluding to hockey itself being “played between two teams” so everyone understood what sport this symbol represented without any words needed!
Today this same iconic design can be seen proudly displayed on both players' jerseys during home games or even just walking around town wearing apparel featuring these famous colors & symbols; reminding us all how much history comes along with being part of our beloved city's most successful sports franchises! It serves not only as a reminder but also celebrates past accomplishments made throughout many generations since first taking a flight back in the 1930s - something we should never forget no matter where life takes us next...
