How do I read the kill icons in League of Legends?

The new League of Legends patch (1.42.34) added in a “Kill Stream” (as well as a lot of other neat UI cleanups. It looks very pretty now, but I digress…) in addition to the announcements of “So and so has slain such and such” etc.

There appear to be at least three separate kill icons – A blue fireball, a yellow sword, pointing downwards, and a red sword, pointed right.

What do each of these kill icons represent?


[W]e went with kill, streak, streak ended.

And from their published screenshots here and here:

  • Single Yellow Sword: Kill

    enter image description here

  • Multiple Blue Swords: Kill Streak

    enter image description here

  • Downward Sword: Breaking someone’s kill streak

    enter image description here

The background is if it was a kill for your team (green) or theirs (red)
