In 2009, the emblem was updated. While the 1999 logo was flat, the new one adopted a 3D look due to the use of a gradient texture. It was applied to all the elements, including the emblem, the lettering, and the background.

2017 – Today

Swiss National League logo
The shape of the 2017 logo has more angles, making it technically a tall heptagon (seven corners). The colors changed to black with a silver frame around the edges. The symbol on top of the logo became smaller, unlike the text. The words ‘National League’ grew in size and took on a more relaxed, round sans-serif look.
