Canadian Football League logo

On the current emblem, only a part of the leaf is present, while the football is absolutely abstract – there’s only a hint (the black seam on the top). The palette combines black, grey, and red, the traditional color of the Canadian maple leaf. This version of the CFL logo also houses the full name of the league in French.
