Meaning and history

Benevento logo history

Benevento is not among the most famous Italian football clubs, but it has a pretty intense history, full of ups and downs. The club was established at the end of1929, and for the first few seasons was working hard enough to reach the third-tier Italian football league, which at that time was called Prima Divisione.

The club was fully reorganized in 2005, and started its way up from the third-division league, getting its promotion toSerie B (the second tier) in 2016. A year after the team’s successful participation led it toSerie A, but it didn’t last long, and in 2021 Benevento returned to Serie B.

The boat from the previous badge of the Benevento club was redrawn in a more friendly and kind way on the badge, created for the team in 1966. The new version featured a light pink boar, drawn in profile against a classy crest with a square top part. The crest had a bright vertically striped background in yellow and red, the palette, which stayed with the club until today.

Whatever the reason, the Benevento logo subsequently dropped the pig and replaced it by another symbol of the city, a witch on a broom. The emblem was inspired by the 13th-century legends of the witches of Benevento.

Benevento is often referred to as the “city of witches,” and for a reason. In fact, back in the 7th century pagan rituals took place here, which were regarded by local Christians as witchcraft.
