The next logo depicted a taller, sharper shield, colored 50/50 in green and red. In its peak, there was an image of a soccer ball with a more detailed coat of arms in the center. Some yellow lines also stretched from it to the left and down, symbolizing the ball’s flight.

2007 – 2009

A simpler design appeared in 2007. The emblem became a grey round outline, although it wasn’t even complete – there were only two crescent shapes in it. The middle of this ‘ball’ was occupied by a shield colored in Portuguese colors, as well as a variant of the Portuguese crest in the center. ‘Primeira Liga’ was written nearby in grey letters.

2009 – 2020

At first glance, the Portuguese Primeira Liga logo may seem nothing but a chaotic collection of multicolored shapes. If you take a closer look, though, you will definitely notice that, first, the smaller shapes form a large circle, and, additionally, that they form a pattern looking very much like the pentagonal and hexagonal seams on a classic football.

 

The shapes colored yellow, purple, pink, green, and teal are placed over a black background and because of that acquire a neon feel. The lettering “Liga NOS,” which reflects the name of the league’s sponsor, can be seen below. The letter “O” here is made up of small white “rays.”
