Standard Liege Anniversary Logo Revealed

Last week, Belgian club Standard Liege revealed a new logo, celebrating the club's 125th anniversary. The team was originally founded by students back in 1898.

Here is a comparison between the regular and the anniversary logo.

The Standard Liege 125th anniversary logo is essentially a slight update of the regular version used since 2013. Added to the banner under the crest, which already contained the founding year 1898, are the current year, 2023, and Roman numerals 'CXXV' (125).

Otherwise the shade of gold has been lightened slightly, as well as the shield and hearth changed in certain proportions. The 'L' in the center also no longer has a white outline where it covers the 'S'.

Essential elements such as the crown, red and white shield, and 'SL' initials have been maintained for many decades.

Liege will wear the anniversary crest on their 2023-24 kits, but likely only for the one season.
