The New Jets Logo and Old Jets Wordmark
Originally, the Jets’ logo and wordmark were inspired by the Royal Canadian Air Force. In fact, the team even wore green pants with their white jerseys from 1990 to 1996. They also wore green throwback helmets during a 17-12 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals in 1993. But with the introduction of their new primary logo, the Jets have changed their logo.
Jets’ new primary logo is based on the Royal Canadian Air Force logo
The Winnipeg Jets have unveiled their new primary logo. Based on the Royal Canadian Air Force logo, the team’s new primary logo has seven colors, while the original had six. This is a return to simplicity, but also includes a true north compass indicator. The new logo also features a Canadian flag. The team’s previous logo was more abstract, while this one is much more symmetric.
The new logo was developed after the team relocated to Winnipeg in 2011. The team’s new primary logo was designed by Linda Lynch, in conjunction with the sports apparel company Reebok. It draws inspiration from the 17 Wing and the Royal Canadian Air Force logo. The silhouette of a McDonnell Douglas CF-18 ‘Hornet’ is centered over a red maple leaf. A grey and blue frame surrounds the entire logo. The wordmark is two lines long and is written in both script and sans serif type.
The new primary logo reflects the team’s ties to Canada’s military and its history. The blue circle with an RCAF fighter jet silhouette and red maple leaf echo the roundel on Canadian air force planes. The red maple leaf is stylized, and the wings of the fighter pilots are outlined in grey. The Winnipeg Jets’ new primary logo is an attempt to pay homage to Winnipeg’s past and to celebrate their air force heritage.
The new primary logo for the Winnipeg Jets was unveiled at 5pm ET today. It features a silver fighter jet with a red maple leaf surrounding it. It is inspired by the Royal Canadian Air Force logo, and was designed by the team in conjunction with the NHL and Reebok.
The new logo features slightly different colours than the current one and is based on the Royal Canadian Air Force’s emblem. Despite the similarities, the logos are different enough to make them distinct from one another. Fans were quick to purchase the new jerseys, and there were lines outside the MTS Centre.
The Winnipeg Jets unveiled their new primary logo on Tuesday, and this emblem was inspired by the RCAF logo. The new logo also incorporates the Snowbirds symbol, which is found on the underbelly of the CT-114 Tutor jet. The font used in the logo is inspired by the RCAF’s regal typeface. The team’s new primary logo also echoes the team’s 1984 move from Atlanta to Moose Jaw.
The team’s wordmark logo is based on the Royal Canadian Air Force logo
The Old Jets wordmark logo is based off of the Royal Canadian Air Force logo. The red maple leaf and roundel in the logo are reminiscent of the RCAF. The RCAF emblem is also used on the chests of Ottawa RCAF Flyers, who won the 1948 Winter Olympics. While the Jets have adopted the RCAF color scheme, they have stayed true to their hockey roots by incorporating the RCAF logo into their team’s logo.
It’s not clear why this design was chosen. Perhaps the Winnipeg Jets logo creator had a specific idea in mind and executed it. However, it would have been better to use a Winnipeg Jets crest – it would have represented the team somehow. The resulting logo is so generic, it’s difficult to tell the difference between the old crest and a beer league logo.
While many NHL logos feature flowing shapes, the Winnipeg Jets logo is the only one with perfect symmetry. In contrast, the modern expansion era has favored flowing logos. The symmetry in the Jets logo suggests speed and a clear direction. It’s also highly codified with imagery that reminds us of the Royal Canadian Air Force.
The RCAF was an independent service for many years. Despite using British roundels on their aircraft, the RCAF distinguished itself through operations around the world. At its peak, the RCAF had 78 squadrons and 35 overseas squadrons, and employed 215,200 personnel. During the war, the RCAF lost 13,500 of its men and women.
The Royal Canadian Air Force logo has a rich history. The RCAF’s logo evolved over time to reflect the changing times. Earlier versions featured a red and blue roundel, while later ones featured a silver maple leaf silhouette. The RCAF was the first Commonwealth country to adopt the RAF’s roundel. Since the late 1940s, the RCAF has used a maple leaf inspired roundel. Prior to that, they used a red, white, and blue maple leaf.
The team wore green pants with the white jerseys from 1990 to 1996
Green pants were a staple part of the team’s uniform from 1990 to 1996. In the early 1990s, the team’s uniforms featured a stripe pattern with a white center stripe and a red ring around the number, but they were eventually replaced by a matte appearance. In addition to the new logo, the team changed its stripes from horizontal to vertical, with the new uniforms having a three-stripe pattern on the chest.
Unlike other teams that have worn green pants with white jerseys for decades, the Philadelphia Eagles have been wearing green jerseys for almost two decades now. This color scheme has a long history in the NFL. In 1934, the franchise’s Frankford Yellow Jackets went bankrupt and the Philadelphia Eagles were formed. The team’s first championship came in 1948, but did not return to the Super Bowl until 1980. The team made their final Super Bowl appearance in 2004 and lost, but they finally won the game in 2017.
The green pants continued to be a popular choice for the team in the 1990s, although they would not be worn on the road in the following years. The green pants had two stripes on the leg, and the socks had alternating green and white stripes. In 1999, the team introduced a green helmet with a white stripe on the side.
From 1990 to 1996, the Chicago Bears’ uniforms lacked variety, but were still notable. The team began the season in white, but switched to pumpkin orange in the season opener against the Detroit Lions. The team also wore navy pants for the first eight games of the season, and in 1995, they started wearing “21” stickers on their helmets after Redskins safety Sean Taylor was murdered.
From 1991 to 1993, the Chicago Bears wore green pants with white jerseys. In 1993, new coach Dave Wannstedt announced that the team would wear white shoes for the rest of the season. In 1993, the team also wore a tribute patch for retired quarterback Mike Singletary, which was worn during three games in the 1992 season.
The team wore a special throwback helmet for a 17-12 win over Cincinnati in 1993
On a game in which the Jets were celebrating their 75th anniversary, the team wore a special throwback helmet during the game against Cincinnati. This replica helmet was made to honor the team’s history. In the 1960s, the team was known as the Titans of New York. Their uniforms were blue with gold stripes on the pants and helmet.
The helmet featured a Bengals player’s photo from his time playing for the Bengals. The player was named Cesar Cedeno, who was the center fielder for the team. He compiled 7.9 wins above replacement (bWAR) in 1972 and 7.2 in 1973, leading the team to its first two winning seasons. But despite those stellar seasons, Cedeno did not live up to the hype and never reached his potential. In addition, he blamed his failure on an incident with his mistress, which he later revealed was an accident.
The team wore the throwback uniforms in 1993, but the uniform changed a little bit after the win. The Texas state flag on the left sleeve was replaced with an Astros logo. Afterwards, the Astros added a white and navy striped helmet.
