Denver professional sports franchises are asking Coloradans the important questions: What’s better (or worse) to incorporate into a jersey, a flag or a license plate?
The Colorado Avalanche unveiled its new reverse retro uniform from adidas Thursday, a look inspired by the state flag. The prominent logo on the front of the sweater is the red “C” with a yellow sphere representing the sun inside of it.
The jersey is white, featuring navy on the sleeves, with red and gold stripes.
The Avalanche’s most recent reverse retro uniform was a tribute to the Quebec Nordiques, where the team was based before relocating to Denver after the 1994-95 season.
Colorado Proud. #ReverseRetro

The Avs (2-1-1) already wear one variation of uniform featuring the Colorado flag. Their sweater for home divisional games has a patch on the shoulders.
Earlier this year, the Rockies released their City Connect uniforms in accordance with MLB’s slow unveiling process of alternate looks for every team. Colorado’s was inspired by the state license plate, with green pants and green-and-white jerseys inspired by the mountains on the plate.
