An advertising executive named John Alogna from East Meadow created the original version of the Islanders logo with the NY over a silhouette of part of Long Island: Nassau and Suffolk counties. Part of the Y is made to resemble a hockey stick, with three orange stripes near the bottom of the shaft and a puck located to the right of the stick blade. the Tip of the “I” ends in a point aimed at Uniondale, Nassau County, representing where the team’s home arena is located above the “Islanders” name at the bottom. The Islanders later updated the stripes, adding a fourth to represent the four Stanley Cups won by the franchise. Aside from the 1995 rebrand attempt, this logo has remained largely intact throughout the team’s history … until Somebody got a hold of it.
Focusing more on the “island”, Somebody moved the stick BEHIND this great body of land and had a new, more detailed graphic of Long Island. Turns out this is a pretty awesome change and one of our favorites in the series.
