EARLY REPORTS OF NEW CAPS LOGO SHOWS "SNARLING" EAGLE
Published June 1, 1995
Although the official unveiling of the Capitals' new logo is still three weeks away, the WASHINGTON POST had a grpahic of the new look this morning. The logo "will be of a bald eagle, one that is snarling and streaking downward." The eagle will have its claws outstretched with "Capitals" in capital letters below it. The wing of the eagle will have five stars on them, "giving the appearance of an American flag." Capitals VP/Communications Ed Quinlan, who was at the NHL's New York office to go over the uniform switch, declined to comment on the "still-to-be- finalized" logo. The new colors have yet to be announced, but sources told the POST's Len Hochberg that the design includes a "coppery red," bright blue and white (WASHINGTON POST, 6/1).
