Port Jefferson School District sports teams may soon have a different look, but not before the community gets the opportunity to weigh in.
The Port Jefferson Royals will still be clad in their signature purple and white for the foreseeable future, but the district is soliciting opinions in an online survey on two proposed logo redesigns. The current logo features block letter style white “P” and purple “J,” which are maintained in both redesign options in the survey, though one adds a purple crown sitting slightly tilted on the left side of the “P.” Both design options incorporate “Royals” in purple into the logo below the traditional “PJ.”
The goal is to created a unified logo for all sports teams and off-field gear worn by parents, friends and team supporters, according to the introduction to the survey.
“By creating a unified logo, we hope to build on our school environment, school culture and school pride,” the introduction reads.
The redesigns are from a combination of ideas used by various Port Jeff teams, according to a statement from the district.
“We currently have different teams and organizations selling team/spirit wear with different logos,” the district statement through spokeswoman Jessica Novins said. “We want to make the logo consistent regardless of the team, sport, or organization.”
For now the new logo will be on apparel that student-athletes, faculty and parents purchase for their personal use, as there are no plans currently to replace actual on-field uniforms.
The survey will be online until Oct. 12. To cast a vote visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PJSDAthleticLogo.
