New Orleans Pelicans Logo

The NBA New Orleans Hornets will now be the New Orleans Pelicans when they play their 2013-2014 basketball season. The pelican is Louisiana's state bird, which makes sense why they changed their name. It also has the Fleur de Lys which is another symbol that represents New Orleans. I personally like their new logo and their secondary logos. I feel the colors work well and that overall logo has a classy look and modern style that compliment each other. The pelican itself is okay even though I feel the head and bill isn't that recognizable compared to the wings. I think the angry aggressive look is fitting and shows a fierce bird that many people who are not from Louisiana will consider to be a non threatening mascot when they think of the word "pelican".

What are your thoughts on the logo? Is it simple enough? Does it work well with what the team wants to be portrayed as?
