The NBA today unveiled the logo for NBA All-Star 2019, which will take place February 15-17, 2019, in Charlotte. The logo pays tribute to the Hornets and the city of Charlotte by featuring the team’s iconic teal and purple colors, along with three icons – a crown, basketball, and star – to symbolize the Queen City and the NBA’s annual celebration of the game. The stacked logo features the words “All-Star” in purple and “2019” in teal on the cover, with the word “Charlotte” in the Hornets front in teal on the bottom. The three icons appear on the tail end to the right of “Charlotte.”
