Meaning and history

Burnley Logo History

The history of Burnley FC logo started in 1886. That year Prince Albert came to the stadium Turf Moor to watch the match between Burnley and Bolton. It is unclear why the monarch didn’t stay to watch the second half. Still, some time later the team got presents ‒ jerseys with the Prince of Wales’ coat of arms.

1935 – 1960

The Burnley logo, used by the club in the 1930s, was based on the classy heraldic symbol — the Prince of Wales’s coat of arms, executed in burgundy, white and yellow color palette, with come light blue elements. The crest was placed on a bigger solid burgundy crest-shaped background and was accompanied by an arched ribbon with yellow lettering and an elegant yellow image of the bird in the upper part of the logo.

1960 – 1969

The redesign of 1960 switched the color palette of the Burnley logo, and now the bigger crest featured light blue, and a thick yellow framing, which was balanced by the smaller yellow crest. The ribbon with the lettering was now executed in black, and balanced by the upper part of the Prince of Wales’s coat of arms, in black with three yellow symbols.

1969 – 1975

The crest from 1979 came back to the Burnley logo in 1987 but in a new color palette. It was made to celebrate the 125 anniversary of the club, so the new color scheme was built around the lost royal colors — gold and burgundy. The enlarged “125” in bold gold lines were written on the crest in the middle of the composition. And the wordmark in white was set on the ribbon under the badge, followed by the “1882 — 2007” datemark.
