The original design used a white circle with several vertical lines in the middle. These were colored turquoise. The text bits included some information on the club (including the location) on a white arched line in the middle & the club’s name written along the edges of a white ring on the outside.

The next design was a simpler white circle with black vertical lines. The blank outer layer included the club’s name written in black letters. Above, they’ve also added a picture of a bronze eagle with outstretched wings.

1900s – 1950

Ferencvárosi Logo 1900s
The following emblem is a white-and-green print of the previous logo, with some changes. It’s now a shield with vertical stripes with the club’s name written across them. The eagle was also given a ball to perch on.

1950 – 1951

Ferencvárosi Logo 1950
The first communist-era emblem used a lot of socialist symbols. There was a generally red circle with golden wheat imagery used as frame. The centerpiece was a white factory with fuming pipes and standing over a small plaque saying ‘Edosz’ in gold.

1951 – 1956

Ferencvárosi Logo 1951
The 1951 emblem depicted a shield, divided by a checkered pattern into 4 sections of white and red. The top left section held a red star, as well. Each element was outlined with a thin layer of yellow. Finally, there was a wide line going diagonally through the emblem and bearing the letters ‘Kinizsi SE’ in red.

1956 – 1960

Ferencvárosi Logo 1956
The 1956 design uses a big white ball as a basis. It’s then given a white line circumventing the object and bearing the name of the club in black. The ball itself has a wide green line, as well as the acronym ‘FTC’ written in tall, golden letters. The eagle made a comeback of sorts, although it’s now smaller.

1960 – 1970s

The 1960 logo is somewhat similar to the original design, although it’s now flat and uses slightly different colors. There’s still a green-striped core with a white plaque going through its middle. The frame still bears the club’s full name, and there’s still the year of founding below. However, all of these white bits are heavily outlined with brown now. The text is also fully brown.

1970s – 1980

2019 – Today

Ferencvárosi logo

The Hungarian football club hasn’t redesigned its badge for many years. It says a lot about their fundamentalist and conservative character and shows the value of heritage and quality.

The official club’s logo is built according to the main principles of the sports visual identity — it is minimalist, bright, and looks good on the team’s uniform.

The circular Ferencvarosi badge features a vertical green and white striped pattern, where each stripe is outlined in gold. The pattern is enclosed in a white rounded frame with a gold outline, where the main wordmark “Ferencvarosi Torna Club 1899” is written in thick golden sans-serif letters.

The center of the emblem there is another white element — a slightly arched banner with a gold outline and gold “BPEST.IX.K.” Inscription on it.

The three five-pointed stars in the same shade of gold are placed over the circular badge in order to celebrate the club’s winnings. In the bottom part of the shield, there is an abstract rounded green symbol with delicate white details is located, splitting the “1899” date mark into two parts.
