Meaning and history

Strasbourg Logo history

The visuals identity of the football club from Alsace is bright, modern, and very stylish. Since 1997 the club has been using a circular shape for its badge, but the logo we all know today is completely different from the original version, though the sleek lines and bright colors are what connects and unites all the emblems of the club.

1997 — 2006

The emblem, designed for the club in 1997 boasted a solid bright blue circle with the part of the Star in deep blue and white outline, placed on the left side of the badge. The Star featured smooth sleek lines and had three smaller stars in yellow on it, placed along the circle’s perimeter.

The wordmark “Racing Club de Strasbourg. Football” was located around the emblem, replacing the frame. The dark blue inscription in all capitals was executed in a bold modern sans-serif typeface and perfectly balanced the star on the circle.

The two shades of the blue, yellow, and white color palette of the logo represented the reliable and loyal football club, showed its energy and willingness to win.

2006 — 2012

The logo was redesigned in 2006, bringing a completely new approach to the club’s visual identity design, and a new, patriotic color palette.

The solid bright blue circle remained as the emblem’s background, but now it contained a thick red diagonal line in gradient shades, coming through it. On the line, the white smaller circle was placed, and a stylized image of a flying bird, also in white, with a thin black outline.

The bird was flying up left and had its beak elongated and sharpened. As for the white circle, it comprised the RCS monogram executed in sleek bold lines, colored blue, and a solid blue tower silhouette, symbolizing the city of Strasbourg.

The main wordmark in white was located around the perimeter of the badge, from the inside. It was executed in a clean sans-serif typeface. The “Football” part on the bottom of the emblem was slightly enlarged.

2012 — Today

In 2012 the club’s name was changed to Racing Club de Strasbourg Alsace, which was reflected in the redesigned emblem of the team.

The composition of the logo remained the same, just a few modifications were made — the red stripe now features plain color, with no gradient shades. And the monogram inside the white circle gained one more letter, and now boasts “RCSA” in a stricter and cleaner sans-serif typeface.

Another significant change was made to the main wordmark, where the word “Football” was replaced by “Alsace”, written one the same style and size as on the previous version, but looking lighter and crispier.

The blue, red, and white color palette of the Strasbourg’s club logo is a celebration of France and its national flag, it also represents the team as a powerful and passionate one, with a progressive approach to the game and a lot of energy.
