City's New Badge
« on: January 06, 2016, 05:33:58 PM »
So the New Badge was officially revealed on Boxing day, although it was released a few days earlier by Intellectual Property Office (IPO)... I initially did not like it, all I wanted was for the 3 stars to be removed.
I wasn't keen on the Rose, although it is part of the Manchester coat of arms, and the 1894 implies there was no St. Marks... and am not impressed that football club is nowhere to be found.


But it does look good on mock up shirts.  8)

I'm not too sure. The typography is miss-matched with the Manchester being curved and the city being straight. It looks as if it has been a bit over designed especially with the shield overlapping the circle. Its just a bit too busy when I think less would have been more. I liked what they did with NYC FC badge but think with this they tried a bit too hard.

apparently it didnt look right with FC or football club  :-X 
also the ship is the same(with a little embossing) as the Melbourne City flag apart from the 3rd sail flap going the other way lol
The outer rim on the design is similar to the other City group members... to me it feels as though this was planned ages ago and they went through the motions to consult the fans... although i'm still living in the Swales mismanagement era! haha

haven't made my mind up yet.. agree with axeman about 3 stars being removed. It's very similar to the badge we used to have ???
