Valencia Logo

Valencia Logo

The logo of the Spanish football club Valencia has always been heavily based on the coat of arms of its home city. And yet, while the earliest versions were closer to the city’s emblem, in the course of time the club has developed a distinctive look.

Meaning and history

Valencia logo history

Valencia Club de Fútbol was established in 1919 in the city of Valencia located on the east coast of Spain. Today, it’s the country’s third most supported football club.

The original Valencia FC logo borrowed three of the most essential elements of the city’s coat of arms and left them almost untouched. We can see the square filled with red and yellow stripes, a crown embellished with white pearls, and a bat on the top.

The club introduced a couple of unique details, too. For instance, the team placed its initials, “C” and “V,” at the space that on the city’s emblem had been occupied by two columns. Also, the sports logo used a large football as a background for the whole design.

Only two years later, in 1921, the team adopted a new logo, which looked very much like the current one. There was a shield with a football over red and yellow stripes. On the top of the shield, there was a blue line with the white text “Valencia CF.” Above it, you could see a bat with its wings spread. The shield and the wings seamlessly merged in an upside-down drop shape.

The 2009 emblem

In fact, the Valencia logo hasn’t changed much since then – in spite of the series of modifications that took place later, it has always remained consistent in its core: the shape, the colors, and the overall structure. The adjustments took place in 1941, 1992, 2001, and 2009. The current version features a darker rat and brighter stripes.

The palette of the Valencia CF logo is heavily based on that of its home city’s crest and flag: red, yellow, blue, black, and white. The only exception is brown, which is used for the football.
