Philadelphia Flyers Alternate Logo Concept

Recommended Posts

"It was artist Sam Ciccone that drew the logo. Four stylized wings attached to a slanted P with an orange dot to represent a puck. There were other designs, including a winged skate, but the winged P was by far the obvious choice...The concept of the logo and jersey was the representation for speed." Flyershistory.com

The Flyers logo should never change but I think an alternate logo with a similar style could work as a shoulder patch. The flyers almost had a winged skate logo so I put together a simple design going off of that idea. Do you think a logo like this would work for the Flyers? INterested to see what everyone thinks.

The site wasnt allowing me to post the image.

Thanks for the response. Most people seem to have a problem with cream but I think it looks alright with certain teams. For me cream looks good with black,not necesarily to make it look vintage either. Especially teams with a warm color also (Blackhawks,Bruins, Flyers, Senators)

I actually really like the idea. I think it needs to be tweaked, I think it's something with where the wings meet the skate, and maybe it could be slanted more forward, but the idea is fantastic, and I like the style in which it's done. Yes, it's fauxbacky, but what else would the Flyers use? They tried modern chrome 3D and everyone loathed it, this...this could work....as an alternate logo.

I like it. It would've worked great for the winter classic, and if it came with the original logo in 1967, id bet it still be used today. good concept, good execution.

Post the image not the link, and the cream outline is completely unneccesary and should be replaced by white.

.

If the cream was white, you wouldnt be able to see it so the cream makes sense.

on tho the logo, I would put the wings flesh with the actual skate and not the back tongue. It also seems like the wings are too thin.

If it was on a black or orange back ground you would see the white key line.

It's a very vintage fauxback-y logo so I'm alright with cream especially if it's used on a special fauxback jersey. If you are making a legit alternate to be used as a full third jersey primary I'd look to go more modern and no cream.
