  • Download PNG Los Angeles Kings Logo PNG One of the most popular ice hockey teams in the US, the Los Angeles Kings have gone through a succession of logos throughout their more than 50-year history.
  • Meaning and history The Los Angeles Kings logo history started in 1967.
  • Because of this, the National Hockey League decided to expand and add six new teams.
  • 1967 — 1975 Among the many variants of the name proposed during the name-the-team contest, Cooke chose the name “Kings” as he liked its royal feel.
  • This was also the reason why he opted for purple and gold as the team’s official colors – they possessed a long-standing history as colors of royal courts.
  • Above the crown, there were the words “Los Angeles” and “Kings” in purple.
  • The shape of the frame looked like a hanging banner or a shield.
  • 1975 — 1987 In 1976, the LA Kings logo went through an update.
  • The lettering “Kings” grew bigger, now it extended beyond the shield frame, while the crown grew smaller.
  • The colors and the horizontal streaks looked very much like those on the logo of the Los Angeles Lakers team, which was perfectly natural as both the clubs shared the same owner.
  • 1987 — 1988 While preserving the “moving” word “Kings,” as well as all the other elements of its predecessor, the Los Angeles Kings logo introduced in 1988 looked very different due to a modified color palette.
  • Purple and gold were preserved only for the small crown, while the rest of the emblem featured black and silver.
  • Inside a classic shield shape, three royal emblems were placed: a lion, a crown, and the Sun.
  • There were also two crisscrossed hockey sticks and the word “Kings” in black over a grey tab.
  • In addition to the colors of the previous palette, a noble shade of blue (or purple) was used.
  • 2002 — 2011 Four years later, the team’s owners decided to make the crown the only element of the logo.
  • The 2004 logo was the first one where there was no name of the team.
  • 2011 — 2019 While looking entirely different from all the previous emblems, the 2011 logo borrowed several elements from them: the shield shape, the distinctive type, in which the letters “LA” were given, and the crown.
  • 2019 — Today In contrast to the vivid colors of the original logo, the palette of the current Los Angeles Kings logo looks strict and minimalistic.
  • There’re only three colors: silver, black, and white.
