Meaning and history SPAL Logo

SPAL logo history

While SPAL has gone through a variety of logos throughout is more than 110-year history, we can point out a couple of visual symbols that have remained comparatively consistent.

Black-and-white symbol

The most prominent of them is probably the drop shape comprising two fields: black and white. The combination of colors was probably inspired by the flag of the team’s home city, Ferrara, which is simply a black stripe on top of a white stripe.

On some versions of the SPAL logo, the drop shape is just put upside down, while on other versions, the top of the drop appears to be cut. Thus, the black-and-white part of the logo forms a shield shape.

Crown emblem

Another recurrent motif has been a crown, which was borrowed from the coat of arms of the city of Ferrara. The current SPAL logo doesn’t comprise a crown, and yet, we may assume that the curves of the banner, as well as its position and gold color have been inspired by the crown, which used to occupy that place on the earlier versions of the emblem.
