During the first 60 years of its history, the Swansea City Association Football Club used a badge heavily based on the crest of its home city. Since the 1970s, the core component of the badge was a swan.

Meaning and history Swansea City Logo

Swansea City Logo history

The team started its history in 1912 under the name of the Swansea Town. The first emblem it used was just the coat of arms of its home city, Swansea, Wales. There was a castle with two towers symbolizing the castle of Henry de Beaumont (1099), around which the town grew up, a rampant lion, and a dragon.

The second Swansea City FC logo (1922) featured almost the same components, although they were redrawn using a slightly different style, color palette, and overall proportions.

Since 1970, when the following logo was adopted, the football club has been experimenting with completely different types of logo, which featured a swan. Initially, it was just a dark grey swan with a yellow beak. Two years later, an all-black swan logo was introduced.

In 1973-1977, the team temporarily switched to a red dragon badge. However, eventually, the black swan made a comeback. Now, it could be seen inside a black circle. In the 1979 version, the black ring became bolder. Also, it held the name of the team in white.

In addition to black and white, the 1992 and 1993 Swansea City logo also featured shades of blue. However, the color logo didn’t last long.

Eventually, the team got back to the black-and-white palette. This time, the logo wasn’t flat, like its predecessors, but featured a stylized 3D swan. In 2005, though, the emblem grew flat once again and was placed inside a black circle frame.

The palette has been based on the combination of black and white since 1970. While the uniforms also feature other colors (yellow, red, blue), the Swansea City logo stays achromatic.
