Meaning and history

Braga Logo history

The visual identity of the Portuguese club had its major redesign just once in history. Though both the main versions of the logo features the same style and mood, the emblem, created in the 1930s became official and was only slightly modified throughout the years.

The 1920s — The 1930s

The logo, designed for Braga FC in 1921 was composed of a classic crest with a pointed top part. The crest was vertically divided into two equal parts — a green one on the left, and a white one on the right. In the middle of the badge there was a golden-brown image of an ancient castle placed, and above it — the elegant old-style “SCB” inscription in black.

The 1930s — Today

In the 1930s the visual identity is being redesigned. It becomes brighter and gets more detail on it. The shape of the crest now features a rounded bottom part and a stylized crown on top. The crown is composed of a golden-brown stonewall with towers.

The body of the crest is vertically divided into red and white halves, and each of the parts has an image of a square stone tower on it. The drawing of the Virgin Mary with Jesus is placed in the center of the emblem.

Above the images, there is three blue and white crest with checkered pattern located, and higher — the “Sporting” lettering in blue capitals. The “Clube de Braga” in-scription is arched along the bottom side of the crest and features the same blue sans-serif typeface.
