Maple leafs concept


Suigi

Recommended Posts

OK, I've officially flipped. But this has been bugging me for a while.

If they're called the Toronto Maple Leafs, and the maple leaf on the Canadian flag is red, why is their uniform blue?

Now that I've gotten into this, I thought this would be a good idea for my first official concept.

The Toronto RED Maple Leafs: in both Fuzzy-Leaf and Modern-Leaf Versions!

Sorry about the size. Comments, anyone?

Agreed, Mockba.

Although they would make for an interesting Team Canada jersey, they can't top the ones from I think the '95 Juniors (the one with the flag effect on the bottom trim... beauty). Plus it's a little to bright of a red.

...and the Leafs are blue in colour because real maple leaves are green in colour! IT JUST MAKES SENSE, DARNIT!

Well if we are gonna start of down this road- why is the leaf on the canadian flag red? Since when has anyone seen a bright red maple leaf?  :laugh:

I reckon this concept would make a pretty good occasional jersey for special occasions like Canada Day (Yeah I know that Canada day is in the off-season but I couldn't think of another!!)

In fall, yes, I have in fact. Perhaps not that exact shade, but very close.

Same here.

Anyway, a green Maple Leafs logo was the reality back in 1926 or so.

Have a look at the NHL page at Logoserver.com for proof.

What demented concept should I pursue next?

I'm seriously looking for ideas.

actually, before canada officially adopted its current flag in 1967, there were many proposals for what would eventually replace the red british ensign that served as the national flag. one of which featured a realistic looking green maple leaf on a diagonally divided red/white background.

other proposals included a red british ensign with a white maple leaf, and a blue-white-blue tricolor with three red maple leaves that was similar to the eventual current design
