Default QC Flames new logo?

This was in an e-mail I recieved from the Mark of the Quad Cities welcoming the Flames to town. I believe we have a logo.

Way to steal the official announcement thunder. If this IS the new logo, then I'm perfectly happy. Flaming C with a Flaming Q and the two don't look like they're having intercourse. Now...put this logo on a RED jersey, and fill the Mark's stands with it and you can have your very own QC of Red.

A bit too big/busy for my liking, and a tad too obvious IMO. But if that's what it is, I'm not overly upset.

Biff, nice pun.

After a 45 second photoshop hack-job, here is what would have preferred the logo to be (obviously not perfect but you get the idea):




Something along the lines of this, maybe just so the players could move around in their jerseys.

Here's my take.



Although I don't think the Flames will go in this direction.

That looks like a "G."

It's not the Guildford Flames.

They wouldn't just use the Q because the team is not located in the city of Quad. They're not the Quad Flames. They're the Quad City Flames.

You're right. That would never work.

Well, now that it's been 'released,' I don't know that I'll be going all the way over for the little cerimony. I like it, though.

No, not that one. The one with both letters. But, whatever. Is the logo official now?

There was a limited timeline for logo creation (the need to get get it out to the public quickly after the snap decision to move into the QC).

Not surprisingly, it's a derivative logo.

It's really too busy...they should have stuck with a single Q. Skip the C.
