0022: A Cracked Bell in the Elements

Like I said yesterday, it feels like we need a break from the Wings and Leafs this Winter Classic Weekend. So I'm digging deep into my inbox. This Philadelphia Flyers concept from Erik Flemming was emailed to me way back in November. The Liberty Bell has long been used by concept artists as a secondary emblem for the Flyers. Here, Erik explains his design choices:

Key design features:

  • Liberty Bell crest inspired by print image from 1966 contest to name the team
  • Three thin black stripes are borrowed from Philadelphia Quakers sweater
  • Two vintage white stripes represent the Philadelphia Flyers two Stanley Cup championships
  • Fonts are current uniform fonts which have remained largely unchanged since 1967-68 (numbers) and 1972-73 (names)
  • Shoulder design to be added (either current winged P logo or 45th anniversary logo)
