Logo history

AC Milan logo history

There were times when the logo featured an image of a red devil and a Golden Star, which is awarded to sports teams for excellence. In 1979, after winning ten league titles, the club won a star, which was added to the logo and placed over its top. Fans still use the nickname “Devil” also because of the somewhat sinister combination of red and blue in the logo.

Shape and colors

The club’s current logo features a shield – an element of its home city’s flag. In turn, Milan’s flag was designed based on the flag of Saint Ambrose. The shield is confined in a circle, above which there is the acronym ACM written in the club’s signature typeface. At the bottom, there is the club’s foundation year (1899). This whole picture is confined in a vertical oval, and there is the Golden Star above it. The red part of the logo symbolizes the team’s passion for sports and eagerness to win. Black stands for the rival’s embarrassment and fear to face the ‘Devil’.
