Cagliari Logo

All the logos used by Cagliari Calcio since the 1950s have been inspired by the flag of the island of Sardinia, where the Italian soccer club is located.

Meaning and history Cagliari Logo

history Cagliari Logo

The flag of Sardinia features four heads and the red cross, which is known in heraldry under the name of the Cross of Saint George. The most known explanation of the emblem is that these are the heads of the Moorish princes defeated by the Aragonese.

Symbol evolution

Cagliari symbol

While the soccer club was officially founded in 1920, there’s little to be said about its first logos. The earliest notable Cagliari logo was probably the one used from the 1950s to 1971. Here, you can see a shield divided into two fields, a red one (to the left) and a very dark blue (to the right). On the dark blue field, the legendary Four Moors from the flag of Sardinia can be seen. At the top of the shield, the gold lettering “U.S. Cagliary” on the white background can be seen.

In the version used in 1971-1993, the heads grew larger, while the blue grew lighter.

From 1993 to 2014, the club played with an oval logo housing a smaller shield that, in its turn, housed the Four Moors.
