    And upgrade...how? Just about every team named "Hurricanes" uses some variation on what a hurricane actually looks like in their logo.

    There are, of course, a few outliers

    Then there are a couple that seem to confuse tornadoes for hurricanes

    And then lastly we have the one team that uses storm flags alone

    I always thought the Cincinnati Cyclones had a pretty clever take on what the Canes could do...

    They even have their own Stormy knockoff

    I dig the flag logo. I know it's not one when the hurricane warning is actually two, but penguins don't actually ice skate and everybody's cool with that one. Sharks don't actually have teal on their heads, etc

    I like the current secondary logo the best. I'd maybe alter a bit, like this. T think two flags can be easily incorporated and still keep the effect that makes the secondary so appealing. I'd keep the current primary logo as the secondary logo.

    Here are a few other ideas I like if a logo change were to be considered. Riffing on a few of these could make some pretty cool logos...

    I've seen that many times, and its never pulled off well. The reason we went with the single flag is because its a stronger logo than having both, regardless of 'accuracy'. I'd rather a complete overhaul than just adding the second flag.

    I'd say that none of the above are an improvement over the current looks, which kind of makes the idea of a rebrand pointless.

    For my taste, I don't like any of those other options at all, including the two flags.

    As much as people pan our logo, I've yet to see a mockup I like better. It's not one of the best logos in the league or anything, but I'd give it a solid B. Looks good on the jersey and we've won a cup wearing it. I really like our current home and aways, and I'm assuming we'll get the third jerseys back next season.

    Those are horrific. I pray that none of those logo designers quit their day jobs, lest they put the "starving" back in "starving artist."

    Likewise here. It's a somewhat stylized hurricane in our team colors. There's not much you can do to better it. I'll take that over a few current logos in the League.

    Just did a google search and... If we were looking to incorporate 2 flags instead of 1... I actually kinda like the logo and wordmark on the right with this.... If you tweaked that a little more, I could see something that would work for the franchise. And that wordmark with the flags underneath is pretty nice. Much cleaner than what we have now.

    Whatever.

    Key Westers (Westerners? Westeros?) burn their hurricane flags at the end of the (hurricane) season as a rite of passage. Maybe we should do the same.

    So burn them at the end of November? That's about as long as our season lasts, so it is fitting.

    These discussions always make me sad because I am one of the very very very very very smaaaaaaaalll few that like our logo and colors.

    My only question is why I miss the original red color, I feel like it was different at at the beginning idk. But this Hurricanes logo provides so much nostalgia for me that ditching it for something else would make me as sad as what happen Tuesday night...

    You know, that would beat the crap out of throwing jerseys as far as protesting the team's performance goes.

    Randomly came across this. But ignore the ugly blue colors. But I actually like how the red, black, and white colors are used in the bottom right. It doesn't really change our logo, but the way the colors are used it sort of modernizes it without losing the integrity of the classic logo.
