Logo Meaning and Colors

Reading Royals emblem

The Royals boast of a “royal” logo ‒ the Lion King Logo. It is a lion head in purple, silver, black and white. The king of the jungle is wearing a crown, which fits the “royal” theme nicely.

The present logo was introduced in 2008. The Royals’ first logo of 2001-2008 was practically the same. The only difference was that it featured the team name below with “Reading” in silver letters and “Royals” in purple trimmed in silver.

The key to success of the Royals’ logo is its color range which is also “royal” ‒ purple, black, silver, and white. Fans have always associated these colors with this team.
