Coyotes Alternate Logo
The Phoenix Coyotes have a long and storied history with their alternate logo. The original version was unveiled in 1996 when the team moved from Winnipeg to Arizona. It featured an orange and black shield that had a coyote head in the center and two crossed hockey sticks behind it. This design was meant to represent strength, courage, loyalty, and pride—all qualities of the Coyotes organization at that time.
In 2003, the team made some changes to their alternate logo by adding more color to it as well as changing up some of its elements slightly; for example, they replaced one of the hockey sticks with an arrowhead shape which is believed to be symbolic for Native American culture since Arizona has such a large population of indigenous people living there today. Additionally, they changed out part of their old shield-like design for something more modern looking while still keeping true to its original roots – this new look included red stripes along either side plus three stars above representing each state within USA Hockey’s Pacific Division (Arizona being one).
Today’s iteration features even further modifications including switching out both arrows on either side back again into hockey stick shapes but now white instead; additionally, they added blue accents throughout while retaining all other aspects intact – making sure fans can recognize this classic imagery no matter what year or decade it may be! With these subtle yet effective tweaks over time Phoenix Coyotes' Alternate Logo continues to stand strong through decades worth of change - proving just how timelessly iconic designs can truly become!
