CAPITALS SAY GOODBYE TO RED, WHITE, & BLUE IN UNIFORM SWITCH
Published May 26, 1995
The Capitals will change their uniform and create a new logo for next season, according to Len Hochberg in today's WASHINGTON POST. They will "unveil a new uniform next month, changing the red, white and blue colors" they have worn since their '74-75 inaugural season. Capitals VP of Communications Ed Quinlan said the team "wanted a more contemporary look ... We're moving into a new arena, with new and younger fans." Sources say the team will switch colors, but "the new colors are being kept a secret until the unveiling, tentatively set for June 22." The uniform change will also enable the franchise for the first time to design a logo. One Caps employee: "We never had a logo, we always had a 'word'" (Len Hochberg, WASHINGTON POST, 5/26).
