Senators Wordmark Logo
The Ottawa Senators wordmark logo has been around since the team’s inception in 1992. The original logo was a black and white “O” with an S inside, surrounded by a laurel wreath. This design was meant to evoke the classic Roman aesthetic used for many other NHL teams at the time, like the Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs. It also paid homage to Canada's parliamentary history, resembling an ornate royal crown and Senate chamber door handles from Parliament Hill in Ottawa.
In 2007, after fifteen years of using this traditional look for their logo, the Senators decided to update their image with a more modern take on their old design concept. They replaced all of its elements except for one: The central ‘S’ remained unchanged but now featured two thick lines that crossed each other within it, creating what looked like four points or blades symbolizing strength and stability - values which are essential to any hockey team looking forward towards success on ice! Additionally, they changed the color scheme from black-and-white to a red-and-black combination reflecting the passion & energy associated with Canadian sports culture and the city's national flag colors, thus making sure fans will recognize them easily no matter where they go!
Today this updated version is still being used by the Ottawa Senators organization across all platforms, including jerseys & merchandise items, giving fans a chance to show off pride wherever they may be located while staying connected back home through shared connection sport brings us together regardless of the distance between us! All these changes over the past few decades kept the current wordmark relevant today, even though initially created almost 30 years ago when the franchise started a journey of becoming the successful professional hockey club we know and love today!
