FC Schalke 04 Logo history


FC Schalke 04 Logo 1971

This version of the FC Schalke 04 logo already has many of the features present in the current one. We can see the “SC” abbreviation paired with “04” (the year when the club was founded, 1904). The palette combining white with a distinctive shade of blue is also familiar.
The older logo is, however, more cluttered. There are several thin rings in white and blue, as well as the lettering “F.C. Schalke04” in small glyphs.

The design team simplified the emblem by just removing everything outside the third blue ring. As a result, the logo now draws your attention to its central part, which becomes more prominent.


FC Schalke Logo 1995

The club has used the same approach to make the design even simpler. Now, they have cut everything beyond the first blue ring. As a result, the ring encircles the central part of the emblem.
While there have been no more changes in the structure of the FC Schalke 04 logo, the designers slightly modified the shape of the glyphs inside.
