Impact Primary Logo
The Montreal Impact has had a long and storied history in the world of professional soccer. The team's primary logo has changed over time, reflecting both its evolution as an organization and its commitment to representing the city of Montreal.
The original logo was designed in 1993 when the team first joined Major League Soccer (MLS). It featured a blue shield with three white fleurs-de-lis on it, which were meant to symbolize French Canadian heritage. This design remained unchanged until 2011 when the club adopted its current logo - a stylized version of its original one featuring an orange circle around it and two crossed swords inside. The sword motif is said to represent strength while also paying homage to Montreal’s rich military history as a home for many regiments during World War I & II.
In 2013, after joining Major League Soccer’s Eastern Conference, they made some minor changes by adding black outlines around each element within their primary emblem; this was done in order to make them stand out more against other teams' logos that featured similar designs or colors schemes at that time. In 2015 they added additional elements such as “Montréal IMPACT FC” written across the top part of the shield along with the MLS crest at the bottom left corner – all these additions are meant further emphasize the connection between the club itself and the league it plays for while still keeping recognizable shape from previous versions intact."

The four stars represent the original settlers of the city of Montreal – the French, English, Irish and Scots. The black and blue stripes are a tribute to the club’s first championship in 1994.
