The Toronto Raptors unveiled three new uniforms for next season, with the “north” pointing chevron making a return.

The chevron is a key element in the new uniforms after first being featured on the 2015-2016 jersey side panel, when the team underwent a rebrand, and was a focal point of the championship playoff run.

This design element is “meant to symbolize the north, represent the team’s past achievements, and mark the path forward,” the team said in a release.

“We want to give our players — and our fans — jerseys they’re proud to wear not just because they say Raptors on the front, not just because they’re a symbol of our city and country, but because they also look great,” Raptors President Masai Ujiri said in a statement.

Each new uniform will also be made up of approximately 20 recycled bottles.

“As we began to think about the decade ahead, we aimed to create uniforms that not only reflected our franchise’s historic accomplishment in 2019 but also inspired the pursuit of our next championship,” MLSE Chief Marketing Officer Shannon Hosford said in a statement. “Our goal was to continue to evolve our ‘We The North’ Raptors brand identity highlighting our key chevron design, which is synonymous with the North and our championship.”

The team will release two additional jerseys to complete next season’s collection.
