WINNIPEG -- They may be the Jets, but they'll be dressed in navy.

The NHL's Winnipeg Jets have unveiled their uniform which features two shades of blue.

The home jersey is navy blue -- officially "polar night blue" -- with striping in white and lighter blue.

The away jersey is white with the two shades of blue as striping.

Both blue colours have links to the air force -- the lighter shade matches the historical colours of the Royal Canadian Air Force and the darker comes from the paint used on many of the military's current aircraft.

Both home and away sweaters feature the team's new circular logo on the chest.
