The National Basketball Association (NBA) today unveiled the logo for NBA All-Star 2017 in Charlotte, NC — the second NBA All-Star celebration hosted by the city along with 1991. Inspired by Queen Charlotte, for whom the city was named, the logo includes a crown reminiscent of the city’s iconic statue. The Hornets’ team colors, purple and teal, are also incorporated into the design.

The logo was unveiled today during the 2016 NBA All-Star Game. The 66th annual game will take place at Time Warner Cable Arena, home of the Hornets, on Sunday, Feb. 19, 2017.

NBA All-Star 2017 will be televised in prime time on TNT for the 15th consecutive year and mark the 32nd year that Turner Sports has provided NBA All-Star coverage. The game will be broadcast worldwide in more than 200 countries and territories and in more than 40 languages.

Additional details on tickets, schedule and other All-Star information will be released at a later date.
