I am contemplating a colour change for the Québec City Gulls of my fantasy baseball league. Below are 2 schemes: the original black and white, and the propsed green and gold.

First the original:

I'd keep the black and white but add in some silver and splash of light blue. It would kind of look like what the Blue Jays have now, except that the colours would fit the name. ;)

Green and yellow look good, but when I think of a gull I think of a seagull and the green and yellow would make me think of a mallard duck. Change the name to the Quebec City Mallards or Quebec City Ducks and then the green and yellow fits.

"Gris et or" means "gray and gold," not "green and black," unless Quebec's version of French is a lot more different than France's version of French then I know. Actually, the concept of Vermont having to rename itself "Grismont" is kind of entertaining.

Anyway, I voted for "gris et or" on the principle that a gray and yellow scheme would look better than the black and white scheme. If you want your team to be green and gold, that's fine too, but to me gray and yellow just says "gulls" in ways that neither black and white nor green and gold do. When I was thinking about naming my fantasy team the Gulls, I played with something a lot like your green and gold version, but with gray instead of green. (And it didn't look anywhere near as good as your unis, which are pretty sweet in both color varieties.)

You're right, I meant to say "vert et or", not gris et or. I must be drunk tonight.

Nevertheless, I did decide to stick with the black and white. It's bold, and plus the more I look at the green and gold, the alternates tend to look like the A's, so trying hard to alter a look that I stuck with for 4 years, I was overruled.

ok, to start the wormark is stolen from the grays harbor gulls, a one year very minor league team about 3 counties away here on the olympic peninsula. good idea though, color is needed, but light blue or teal would be better.

No. Your wrong. Why would he steal a wordmark from some plopty one year minorleague team? Seriously now, come on. And why does it matter? its a fantasy concept.

Plus, the wordmark is stolen from the San Francisco Giants. :D

Salut Alouettes,

Juste une chose, penses-tu vraiment que l'idée d'avoir un nom anglophone pour Québec serait bon? ahahhahaha

Just one thing, do you really think that the idea of an english name as Gulls or Quebec City on the uniform would be a good marketing idea in the capital of the french speaking province in Canada?

Otherwise, the concept, colors and everything is just great... Wrong city maybe!

:notworthy:

As much as I hate the Yankees pinstripe look (because everyone whines about how great the Yankees pinstripes are and I'm sick and tired of it), it actually fits your team here moreso and the Green and Gold.

Bonjour, mon ami! :D

It's true, that a team from Québec City with an English name probably wouldn't sit well with its fans marketing-wise. Same as other cities in Quebec. And I know this all too well.

However, NFL Europe has teams in Germany and Holland with English names. But to be fair, the only reason I called the Quebec City team the "Gulls" is because I just liked the name so much, even though it doesn't tie in with the city...not by a longshot.

Vive le Québec libre!!!

This font.....I must have it....where did you get it from, what is its name and was it a freeware font?

Which font are you talking about? The wordmark on the jerseys, the lettering on the logo, or the numerals?

The lettering on the logo is called Onyx BT, and the numerals are called MLB Block, you can get it from eriqjaffe.

The "Quebec City" wordmark I designed myself.
