Calgary Flames Trademarks
September 4, 2020
The Calgary Flames compete in the Pacific Division of the Western Conference of the NHL. This is the third team to play in this city, following the Calgary Tigers, from 1921-1927, and the Calgary Cowboys, from 1975-1977. In addition to being the third team in Calgary, they are the one of two teams to play in Alberta. This has created a rivalry with the Edmonton Oilers, and the two teams now compete in what is known as the “Battle of Alberta.”
The franchise actually began in 1972 as the “Atlanta Flames” and only relocated to Calgary in 1980. The Flames have won one Stanley Cup in 1989 but won the Presidents’ Trophy twice (for being the top regular season team). Nine people associated with the Flames have been inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame.
The Flames primary logo is the flaming C design that was created when the team relocated to Calgary in 1980; however, the franchise only filed the trademark for the image in 1994. This logo has not been changed in any way since its inception except for the colors, and it has been black white or red. The original flaming A logo, from Atlanta, has been used as a patch for “alternate captains,” but they have made no attempt to trademark this image. In addition to their primary logo, the team has registered their alternate logo, the flaming horse, for a trademark as well. This logo is no longer used as of 2007, but the team holds both registrations for it – for both hockey and for clothes – active. In total, possibly because the team is primarily located in Canada, the team only owns 6 trademarks and only 4 different designs.
