The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs logo was redesigned again in 2003. The composition remained the same, but the contours of all elements got refined and the bottom part of the emblem — strengthened and emboldened. The black diagonal banner with the lettering got wider, so the white “Bulldogs” inscription in the uppercase was rewritten in a bigger size and bolder lines.
