The Canucks' first logo. A similar version of this logo is used as their shoulder patches and for their third jerseys. The original logo was designed by former graphic designer Joe Borovich .
Note the logo has used similar colors over its lifespan. From 1978-1992 the colors were gold and orange. Beginning in 1992-93 they became yellow and red.
Deciding to go with a design to reflect BC's West Coast heritage, the team changed their logo featuring an orca splashing out of water in the shape of a "C". It's also a reference to the team's owner, Orca Bay Sports & Entertainment.
