The "Blue Note" has represented St. Louis’ NHL team since its inception in 1967, with some alterations along the way. It’s a symbol that stands not just for the team, but the city and region, which is renowned for its history of jazz and blues music. The color blue is an obvious fit with the name and is accentuated with a yellow that used to take up more space on the logo.
2009 - Present
The emblem the team proudly displays is called “the Blue Note.” The Blue Note was taken from the music scale and represents the team’s name. The classic note logo featured a blue note with wings outlined in yellow, white and blue.
1999 - 2008
In 1998, the Blues went to the logo they still use today. The red outline was removed and the blue coloring was darkened. The wordmark “ST. LOUIS” is removed from the top rung on the note. The blue note has an outline of yellow then white and then blue.

1985 - 1987
In 1984 – 1985, the Wordmark “St. Louis” in white was subtly added to the top rung of the blue note, while “Blues” was spelled out in large letters above it. This logo also introduced a hint of red into the logo, which would remain for 15 years.
1979 - 1984
In 1978 – 1979, the roundel and wordmark around the blue note went through a major change, and the blue note itself was given a little more bulk. Now a wordmark “ST.LOUIS” in blue on top and “BLUES” in blue on the bottom.
