Crystal Palace Football Club are delighted to announce a new club crest that perfectly combines the heritage from our club’s proud history, but also brings it up to date with a fresh clean design.
The owners have taken into account the fans views on this very important aspect of a club’s profile and co-chairman Steve Parish is pleased with the brand new design, which was launched at the club’s awards night.
Mr Parish said: “When we put a number of badges to vote a year ago we received a real cross section of opinion and have taken these views on board.
"The badge has been designed by one of our supporters, Dan Mulcahy, assisted by the designers at CHI and partners and Robert Deacon in the club’s own design studio. We would like to thank them all, especially Dan, who has worked tirelessly to get this produced.
“I see this change as more evolution than revolution, as it was important to keep the heritage of the past. The towers, glass building and eagle have been included, but the badge brought up to date using the latest techniques and design styles, we have also added the year we were founded as this was requested by the fan base.
“The new badge has been designed to be able to be used in different ways. The crest will be seen with a shield in a ‘coat of arms format’ around the stadium, without a shield on the club kit, on training wear and in the media, as well as a simplified version for some casual clothing and merchandise.
"This new design will re-produce much better than the old line drawing, featuring a stronger more dynamic eagle that brings our club image into the 21st Century.”
