The New MH Logo

Present
Unveiled during the 2008 NBA Draft, the HEAT’s new secondary logo is sleeker and cleaner than the previous flaming “MH” logo. The new logo is white and outlined in the HEAT’s colors of red, yellow, and black. The “H” also has a flaming tip which resembles the “T” on the HEAT’s primary wordmark.

HEAT Logo History
1988-1999
In 1988, the HEAT held a public contest to design the team’s logo. On March 2, 1988, the flaming basketball was selected from more than 1,000 entries and adopted as the HEAT’s official logo. Mark Henderson submitted the winning entry.
1999 – Present
To bring in the millennium, the HEAT redesigned its logo for the first time in history. The team kept its traditional ball and flame logo but changed the body to its primary color of red with a yellow flaming tip. The new logo was also redesigned with a black outline, and the color of the “halo” was changed to white. The HEAT also made a slight modification to its wordmark – angling the flame on the end of the “T.”
1999 – 2006
During the 1999-00 season, Miami also introduced a secondary logo – a flaming “MH.”
1999-Present
That same season, the HEAT also introduced a secondary wordmark. The “Miami” wordmark is featured on the HEAT’s alternate road uniforms.
