New York Islanders Primary Logo 1973 – 1995
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.
