Clash Alternate Logo
The San Jose Clash, now known as the San Jose Earthquakes, has a long and storied history with its alternate logos. The first logo was introduced in 1996 when the team joined Major League Soccer (MLS). This logo featured a black shield with three red stripes on it along with an image of a soccer ball inside of it. It also had “San Jose” written across the top and “Clash” written at the bottom in white font.
In 2000, they released their second alternate logo which featured an orange circle that contained two crossed swords beneath it along with four stars above them representing each MLS Cup Championship won by then-owner Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG). In 2002, they switched to another new design which showed off two silhouettes playing soccer against one another while wearing different colored jerseys underneath a large blue banner that said "Clash."
Finally in 2006 after AEG sold its interest to Lew Wolff's group who renamed them Earthquakes; this brought about yet another new look for San Jose's crest featuring an earthquake symbolizing both strength and courage alongside five stars signifying all five MLS Cups won by AEG during its time owning the franchise. This is still used today as their main badge but has since been tweaked slightly over time to better reflect modern design trends within professional sports teams' branding efforts around North America.
