For most of the franchise’s history, the team has gone with a blue and orange logo featuring a stylized “NY” and the world “Islanders” with a map of Long Island in the middle. Except for one radically different crest, of course, that has drawn ridicule as one of the worst logos in the history of the game.
2011 - Present
Beginning in 2008, the Islanders introduced another modification to their original logo. The “new” logo, once again in royal blue, now features four orange stripes on the hockey stick instead of three, representing the four consecutive Stanley Cup titles in the 1980s. A wordmark “ISLANDERS” in orange on the bottom. The letters “NY” stand for the city of New York.
1999 - 2010
The original logo is brought back and the only change to the classic logo is its colors; as the team had replaced its original royal blue with navy, the logo was recolored to match. The letters “NY” stand for the city of New York.

1996 - 1997
Before the 1995 – 1996 season, the Islanders attempted to update their look. The result was the unveiling of a logo depicting a fisherman in a teal pancho and hat holding a striped hockey stick. A wordmark “ISLANDERS” in white with orange bottom border. A hockey net in the background.
1973 - 1995
An advertising executive named John Alogna from East Meadow hired Jacob Morris Strongin–a freelance graphic designer who resided in Syosset, L.I. who created the original version of the Islanders logo with the “NY” over a silhouette of part of Long Island, Nassau and Suffolk counties. Part of the “Y” is made to resemble a hockey stick, with three orange stripes near the bottom of the shaft and a puck located to the right of the stick blade. The Tip of the “I” ends in a point aimed at Uniondale, Nassau County, representing where the team’s home arena is located above the “Islanders” name at the bottom. The letters “NY” stand for the city of New York.
