So when I saw the Vancouver Canadians new logo for this season I was very happy. The Canadians have always done a good job of keeping their logos fairly simple and dignified but their last logo was a modern looking “VC” that never really looked right. Something about it made it look top heavy and awkward. Now they have a simple looking “C” on their home hats and a “V” on their road and both look very classy.
And the decision to use and embrace just the letter “C” on the logo makes perfect sense. The Canadians have been known throughout their existence in Vancouver as simply the “C’s”. In fact, when I went to my first game up there I had to stop and ask directions to the ballpark and I referred to the team as the Canadians. The guy was a bit confused, because any game up there is a Canadian’s game. But he finally said “oh…You mean the ‘C’s’!” and sent me on my way.
So kudos to the Canadians for giving us a classic and dignified new logo to go with your classic and dignified jewel of a stadium in your classic and dignified city.
