Canadiens Wordmark Logo
The Montreal Canadiens have one of the most recognizable logos in all sports. The iconic ‘C’ and hockey stick intertwined with a red, white, and blue color scheme has been around since 1917 when founding owner J. Ambrose O’Brien first introduced it. Since then, the logo has undergone some subtle changes but remains unchanged from its original form.
In the 1934-35 season, the team changed their name to "Les Canadiens" as they were now owned by an English-speaking group that wanted to honor French Canadian heritage; this also marked a shift in their logo design which saw them switch out their old shield logo for an updated version featuring two large letters 'M' & 'C' on either side of a hockey stick crossed with each other forming what is known today as the classic “CH” symbol we know so well today!
Today's modern version still retains much of its original elements while adding more vibrant colors like navy blue and silver accents along with sharper lines making it stand out even more against competitors such as Toronto Maple Leafs or Boston Bruins, who both have similar designs but lack that unique touch only found within Montreal's beloved crest! Overall this timeless emblem continues to be associated not only with Canada's national sport but also serves as a reminder for everyone about how far this historic franchise has come over the last century since being founded back in 1917 - a truly remarkable feat indeed!
