The mark reinforces the connection between the team name and its Civil War heritage, depicting the hockey club’s signature 1857 Napoleon cannon that fires each time the Blue Jackets score at Nationwide Arena. The name “Columbus Blue Jackets” encircles the cannon in a ribbon inspired by Civil War medals, while a single star centered at the bottom of the crest signifies Columbus as Ohio’s capital.
