Brentford FC Primary Logo
Brentford Football Club, located in West London, England has a long and storied history. The club’s primary logo has seen several iterations over the years as it continues to evolve with the times.
The original Brentford FC logo was first used in 1889 when the team was founded by Fred Hargreaves and his brother-in-law Henry Price. It featured a simple shield shape containing two crossed bees back to back on top of an orange background with white lettering spelling out “BFC” for Brentford Football Club above them. This design remained unchanged until 1934 when it underwent its first major redesign which saw the shield replaced by a more modern circular crest featuring three bees flying around an orange football surrounded by laurel leaves and topped off with another set of white letters reading “BRENTFORD F C” along its perimeter edge.
In 1967, this version of their crest changed again as they adopted their current look which features four blue stripes running across an orange circle that is bordered in black at its edges; inside are two yellow bees facing each other while perched atop a football encircled within green laurel leaves once more making up part of the overall design composition. The words "BRENTFORD FOOTBALL CLUB" can be found written below this image completing what remains today as one of English soccer's most recognizable logos worldwide since then.
Brentford FC fans will be delighted to know that their team is taking part in the Premier League Team Logo Battle, a competition where all 20 teams have been pitted against each other based on fan votes. This is an exciting opportunity for Brentford supporters to show their support and help make sure their beloved club comes out victorious!
