Red Wings Condemn Use of Logo at White Nationalist Rally

Several of the right-wing sign holders have held up signs that feature the Detroit Red Wings' logo, which led to the team's statement.

With a state of emergency declared in Virginia amid violent protests by white nationalists in Charlottesville, the Detroit Red Wings said Saturday that their logo, displayed on some protesters' placards, has no place at the "Unite the Right" rally.

Another theory: White supremacists have adopted the name from "Operation Red Wing", a 2005 incident during the War in Afghanistan that claimed the lives of 19 Americans, many of them Navy SEALs.

NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly decried the "irresponsible and improper use" of the logo. "We are exploring every possible legal action as it pertains to the misuse of our logo in this disturbing demonstration". This specific use is directly contrary to the value of inclusiveness that our League prioritizes and champions.

A group that goes by the "Detroit Right Wings" uses a red and right wing logo that is similar to the hockey team's logo.

Over the weekend, various white supremacy groups marched on the grounds of the University of Virginia in Charlottesville.
