Blackhawks vs Blue Jackets


The Aesthetics
I should start out by saying that despite how many people apparently think the Blackhawks have the best logo in sports, I don't see it. And I don't really like it. I think improvements could be made. I'd also question what makes it the best. On the other hand, the Blue Jackets logo is pretty killer. We should count how many NHL logos have the letter "C" in them.

The Nickname
The Blue Jackets in the Union Army would have surely been able to take Chief Blackhawk and his band. Maybe they did.

The Analysis
Try not to jump up and down on my head, but i just think that the Blue Jackets logo makes a better symbol for its team. Let the harrassment begin. At least the Blue Jackets logo has a defined color scheme. There's way to much going on in the Blackhawks logo. Let's tone down the colors a little. That's all I'm saying. And the Jackets logo has an Ohio flag that forms a "C" for Columbus.

how much more defined color scheme do you need for the blackhawks. Its been the same for what since 1955. Going back to 1937 they had most of the colors in the logo also. The redesign in 1955 contains every color in there now. You can't get more defined than that. Their colors are red white and black. They use the other colors as accents.

Really...putting the Blackhawks' logo down because of color scheme is a bit ridiculous...You say Columbus' star with a flag is better because the color scheme is in the logo, and Chicago has too many colors accenting the red white and black...if anything, having only the team colors in the logo is rather drab wouldn't you say? It's not like the hawks logo doesn't have any of the jersey colors in it.
