Deportivo La Coruna: Brand overview

Founded:2 March 1906
Founder:Abanca Corporación Bancaria, S.A.
Coruña, Galicia, Spain

Deportivo La Coruña is one of the largest Galician clubs. It appeared in 1906 when young gymnasium students from Sala Calvet formed their football team. A year later, King Alfonso XIII granted her patronage, like many other sports organizations in Spain.

For over 70 years, the club has played home games at the Abanca-Riazor stadium. His competition with Real Club Celta de Vigo went down in history as Galician derby. The last meeting of bitter rivals took place in La Liga, from which Deportivo La Coruña has long been eliminated. It is currently downgraded to Segunda División B.

Meaning and History

Deportivo La Coruna Logo History

Surprising fact: the most famous Deportivo emblem has remained almost unchanged since 1912. And the path that it has traveled does not differ in variety because the designers experimented only with the color palette. Perhaps this is due to the graphic sign’s symbolism because each element in its composition has a special meaning and cannot be replaced by something else. Until 1912, simpler and more minimalist logos were used.

What is Deportivo de La Coruña?

Deportivo de La Coruña is the popular form for the official name Real Club Deportivo de La Coruña, which includes professional footballers. The team is based in Galicia, Spain, and plays in the third-tier Primera División RFEF – Group 1. It was established in 1906.

1906 – 1908

The first emblem contains the Sala Calvet gymnasium’s initials, in which the football club was established. The “SC” letters are presented as a thin blue monogram.

1908 – 1910

A blue knight’s belt frames the monogram in the form of a ring. The central circle is white, as is the general background.

1910 – 1911

The team celebrated the patronage of Alfonso XIII with a new royal crown logo. The belt and monogram remain in place, but the outlines and letters are black. The ring’s inner part is white, so the inscription “DEPORTIVO SALA CALVET” is visible on it. There is a brown soccer ball in the center, with a golf club and tennis racket in the background.

1911 – 1912

The designers removed all sports attributes except the ball. The racket and clubless emblem represent Deportivo La Coruña as a football club.

1912 – 1928

The ball and the “SC” monogram are a thing of the past. They were replaced by the Sala Calvet Gymnasium’s triangular pennant, which features a purple cross with a mini-crown in the center. However, the large crown has not disappeared anywhere. In the banner’s left corner is a blue diagonal stripe taken from the flag of the Galicia region. Inside the knight’s belt is written the name of the club, indicating the patronage of Alfonso XIII: “REAL CLUB DEPORTIVO LA CORUÑA.”

1928 – 1931

The large crown has become a little smaller; everything else has not changed.

1931 – 1941

The club had to remove both crowns because the use of such symbols after the overthrow of Alfonso XIII was considered a crime.

1941 – 1955

After the end of the Spanish Civil War, the team adopted the classic crown emblem. Gone is the blue diagonal line representing the Galicia flag.

1955 – 1962

The missing blue stripe is back. The design of the crown has changed: small light blue dots appeared on it. The knight’s belt is yellow, and the cross on the pennant is blue.

1962 – 1973

The designers have made the ring white to make the club’s name written in gold letters easier to see.

1973 – 1997

The blue crossed lines turned purple again, as in the original banner of the Sala Calvet gymnasium.

1997 – 2000

At the end of the 20th century, the club adopted a bright emblem with a yellow predominance: it was used for the inscription, crown, and contours. The proportions of the elements have changed slightly.

2000 – today

The designers have returned the classic dark gold color. Many elements have outlines that were not there before. The crown’s design has changed: its inner part is completely red, and the lower rim is white.

Deportivo La Coruna Emblem

Deportivo La Coruña’s current graphic is very reminiscent of the 1912-1928 version, which appeared six years after it was founded. And all the emblems that were between them are also incredibly similar. Common symbols unite them:

  • knight’s belt
  • Sala Calvet pennant
  • stripe with the flag of Galicia
  • the name of the club and the crown is denoting royal support.

When creating the inscription “REAL CLUB DEPORTIVO LA CORUÑA,” the designers used a bold grotesque. In 2014, it was used as the basis for the RCD Carme Condensed custom cut font, which has become the main decoration of new player kits.

The main color of the logo is white. Despite this, the palette is quite varied. It includes red (# DB5232) for the inside of the crown, blue (# B9D9EC) for the diagonal stripe and small details, purple (# 57175E) for the cross, gold (# A38D44) for the lettering and outlines.
