Meaning and History logo

West Ham United logo history

The original crest was based on the flag of the UK. It was only in 1923 that the team adopted its current name, West Ham United, and a logo with the two crisscrossed hammers that have been present on the crest ever since. The hammers emblem was inspired by the team’s nickname, the Hammers, which was derived from the hammers used by shipbuilders.
Since then, the West Ham United FC logo has gone through a series of around 15 transformations. They involved both the shape and, to a smaller extent, the color scheme.
