Meaning and history

Iona Gaels Logo history


The Iona Gaels logo has gone a long way from a cartoonish design to the bold and contemporary emblem the team has today. The older logos introduced in 1982 and 2003 featured a smiling character wearing a gold and maroon hat.
In 2013, they were replaced by a typographic logo dominated by the word “Iona.” The centerpiece of the emblem was an intricate design placed inside the letter “O.”
The Iona Gaels logo adopted in 2016 preserved the typographic core of its predecessor but added a shield at the background.
