Maple Leafs Alternate Logo
The Toronto Maple Leafs are a professional hockey team that has been around for over 100 years. As one of the most iconic sports teams, they have had many different logos throughout their history. Each logo has a unique story behind it, from the classic blue and white maple leaf to more modern designs.
One of the most interesting alternate logos used by the Maple Leafs is from 1967-1970, when they adopted an abstract design featuring a stylized red maple leaf with two curved lines underneath it representing waves on Lake Ontario. This logo was designed to represent Canada’s national symbol and the city’s location near one of North America's Great Lakes. It was widely praised at its unveiling due to its simplicity and symbolism.
In 1998, another alternate logo was created, featuring a large white “TML” in front of three overlapping leaves (two green ones above and one red below). The top two leaves were meant to represent Canada. In contrast, the bottom represented Ontario province, where Toronto is located. This design had remained popular among fans despite not being used on official merchandise since 2003 when yet another new primary logo replaced it. It is clear that throughout their long history, The Toronto Maple Leafs have always strived for creative ways to display their pride through various emblematic designs!
