As a company with a more than 155-year history, the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) has gone through several logo redesigns. However, there’s been a recurrent motif: every version of the RBC logo since 1901 has featured a lion.

The earliest logo (1969) reflected the original company name, the Merchants Bank of Halifax, and was given in black and white. The 1901 version added new colors, the new name, and a more complex crest.

Symbol since 1962

In 1962, the emblem was simplified. Now, it featured a lion holding its paw on a globe, above which a crown was placed. As the result of the 1974 update, the emblem grew cleaner.

The 2001 redesign brought about dark blue and yellow, as well as the text “RBC,” while the lion’s muzzle was turned to the right.
