Celtic is one of the oldest and one of the most popular clubs in the world. In November 1887, at St. Mary’s Church in the Calton neighborhood of East Rose Street, now called Forbes Street. It was on that day that an Irish priest, Brother Wilfrid, gathered his fellow believers there and suggested that they organize a soccer club. It took him six months to form a team and play his first match.

Since 2021, Celtic has been led by Australian specialist Ange Postecoglou. Before that, the club was coached by former Celtic player Neil Lennon. Recent years in the Scottish league are marked by the era of Rangers revival, so the club has a hard time. At the same time, the team remains the top team in the country, consistently winning the Scottish Cup and the Scottish Cup.

The Celtic cross remained the centerpiece of the logo. It was placed in the center circle of a round base with a double thin outer border of green color. The name, Celtic Football Club, was printed around the center circle on a wide border. The emblem turned out very traditional and had just basic elements without any fancy ornaments or details.

A green clover leaf was used by the club as their emblem for forty years. It was a three-leaf clover, which typically symbolizes love, hope, and faith. Considering that the club previously used a Celtic cross, the clover leaf could also stand for the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. There were no other elements or inscriptions in this logo.

1928 – 1929

The clover leaf was not only given a pattern but also placed on an oval decorative base. Around the border, the logo had “The Celtic Football” printed on the left and “And Athletic Coy. L” on the right. The logo was done in a beige and green color palette that looked rather calm and relaxing. Just like previous versions, this emblem looked very simple and self-explanatory.

The 1977 logo introduced a green circle with a white core. That’s where they put a green clover with white veins – their new symbol. Along the top of the resulting green frame, they’ve written the club’s name – ‘the Celtic Football Club’ – in white letters. The founding year was written in the very bottom, by contrast.

1987 – 1989

Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the club’s existence, they adopted this logo: a white circle with a lot of green elements. It included the old cross image in the middle with the years 1988 and 1994 on either side. The club’s name was written in the same way, although where the founding year was on the previous logo, there was now a clover.

1995 – Today

Celtic logo

The visual identity of the Celtic club is very Scottish. Executed in green and white, the color combination which associates with the country most, it features a four-leave clover as the main element. The current version of the logo was designed in 1995 and was replaced by the 125-years anniversary badge for one year, in 1012.

The Celtic logo is composed of a stylized clover image, enclosed in a wide circular frame with a white background and a double green outline. The leaves of the clover feature a unique striped pattern, which makes the whole logo modern and crispy.

The club’s wordmark, “The Celtic Football Club”, is written in a lightweight sans-serif typeface with thin clean lines and placed on the upper part of the badge’s frame, arched from the center.

The bottom part of the frame comprises the “1888” mark surrounded by two abstract lines, resembling two bats.

For the anniversary of the club, the badge switched its colors and the clover with the frame became bright green, while the lettering — white. The emblem was enclosed in an ornate wreath and had a simple yet elegant black star above it.
