Capitals Wordmark Logo
The Washington Capitals have had a long and storied history with their wordmark logo. The first iteration of the logo was introduced in 1974 when the team entered the NHL as an expansion franchise. It featured a blue “W” surrounded by white stars, representing both Washington D.C. and its status as an American city. This version of the logo remained relatively unchanged until 1995, when it received some minor updates to modernize it for increased visibility on television broadcasts and merchandise sales alike.
In 2007, however, things changed drastically for this iconic emblem with a significant overhaul that brought about much-needed changes to keep up with current trends in sports logos at that time; most notably replacing navy blue from previous versions of this design with red which has become one of their primary colors ever since then. Additionally, new features such as bolder font lines were added alongside subtle details like shadowing effects to give it more depth than before while maintaining its classic look overall.
Today's version is widely accepted amongst fans all over North America who proudly wear apparel featuring this beloved symbol everywhere they go, making sure anyone around knows precisely where their loyalties lie: With The Washington Capitals!
