Nordiques Alternate Logo
The Quebec Nordiques were a professional hockey team based in Quebec City, Canada. They played in the National Hockey League (NHL) from 1979 to 1995 before relocating to Colorado and becoming the Colorado Avalanche. During their time as an NHL franchise, they had several alternate logos that were used for special occasions or commemorative events.
One of the most recognizable alternate logos was designed by Jacques Caron and unveiled during their first season in 1979-80; it featured a white snowflake on top of a blue “Q” with two crossed sticks below it. The logo was meant to be symbolic of winter sports such as hockey being popular activities within Quebec at that time period. This logo would also appear on all jerseys worn by players during home games until 1985 when they switched back to wearing only their primary crest for all games regardless of venue location or occasion type.
Finally, another version made its debut shortly after which included both English and French versions side-by-side with one reading “Quebec Nordiques” while the other read “Les Nords de Québec”; this design lasted until 1991 when yet another updated look emerged featuring just one word across both languages: "Nordique". Although this logo never appeared on any official merchandise nor did it receive much recognition outside local markets due to its short lifespan, many fans still remember fondly what is now considered an iconic symbol associated with this beloved defunct franchise today!
