PSG's New Logo



Image: http://s.psg.fr/psg/image/article/illustration_s/g/254/50646.jpg


This will be the club's official logo starting next season.

I kind of like the current one better.

What was the purpose behind the cradle in the old one?

For comparison purposes.

Maybe it's now symbolizing their coming of age as a club?

ETA: From wiki "the white royal cradle of Louis XIV"

There's a Paris FC in Ligue 2. I think they'll stick with Saint Germain as the name insinuates the uniting of two clubs; the old Paris FC and Stade Saint Germain.

But Paris St Germain came from a uniting of the original Paris FC and St. Germain in 1970.

Looks like the logo on the Saab I drove, while in Athens, GA.

Not a big change, but, like other people have mentioned they're really de-emphasizing the "Saint-Germain" in addition to the graphic part of the logo. I'm not sure I like the less prominent look of the Eiffel Tower.

Seems cartoonish. I don't like it. The original is so good-looking too...what a shame.

Same here. Looks like I need to jump on that PSG kit I've been thinking about buying before they make the change.

Never a drastic change to soccer club logos eh... usually just a subtle change. I like the new one tbh.

I really think it is cartoonish because that is a screen shot of a graphic. The same thing happened when they leaked the Pelicans' logo. It was a screen shot of a "3D" logo, so it looked funny.

Really, the only difference is the middle circle got smaller, thus making the Eiffel Tower smaller. They emphasized Paris and got rid of the cradle.

Got one for christmas! I'm not really a supporter though...I just like to collect kits. Plus Paris is one of the coolest cities in the world.


The flat logo does look better, but I still like the former.

Pertinent question to my fellow footie in Alabama.

When the hell do you wear a damned polyester strip in the Deep South?

Air Flow, Cool Max, all that shit, but really?

I do all the time. They breathe ok. They keep the heat in though if you're wearing an undershirt.
