Islanders Alternate Logo
The New York Islanders have a long and storied history in the National Hockey League. From its inception in 1972 to today, they have had several different logos representing its identity as an organization. The most iconic logo of all is the original “fisherman” logo which was used from 1972 until 1995, when it was replaced by a more modern design featuring the team's colors of blue, orange, and white. However, over time this new look has been tweaked with various alternate logos adopted throughout its usage period from 1996-present day.
The first alternate logo for the Islanders came about in 1998 when they introduced a shield design featuring an anchor within it to signify strength and stability for both players on ice and fans off the ice who supported them through thick or thin times, respectively. This same concept would be carried forward into 2000 when another variant of this shield style featured crossed hockey sticks inside with two stars above representing past Stanley Cup victories (1980 & 1983). A third iteration was unveiled shortly after, showcasing just one star at the top while retaining the same basic shape/style overall while adding slight variations such as color scheme changes or subtle background designs like waves.
As years went on, so did these various iterations culminating latest version being released during the 2018 season: “NYI” lettering combined with a traditional fisherman silhouette - something that many consider returning classic image associated with Islander teams before the 1995 rebranding effort mentioned earlier! While some may prefer older versions due nostalgia factor, there is no denying how powerful impact each one has had, shaping what we now know today as be beloved franchise based out of Long Island, NY; ultimately making them symbolize not only greatness but also pride that the community continues to support every step way!
