Meaning and history

Kansas City Royals Logo history

1969 — 1978

Kansas City Royals Logo 1969
The Kansas City Royals logo, designed in 1969, was composed of a bright blue crest with an orange crown on top, a fancy white letter “R” with its tail curved, set in the center, and a small “KC” monogram written in orange above the upper right corner of the “R”. The “Royals” wordmark was written under the crest, in all capitals of a custom typeface, with the first letter fully repeating the shape of the one from the shield. The logotype was executed in juicy orange color.

1979 — 1985

2019 — Today

The redesign of 2019 simplified the official logo of the club to just a dark blue crest with a pale gold crown and a white monogram on it. The script lettering was removed from the primary version, though is still used by the club depending on the occasion. Compared to the previous badge, the new one is flat, without the black outline of the lettering, and this minimalistic approach makes it look chic and expensive.

Cap symbol
