Tottenham Football Club is one of the most important clubs in the world. He has repeatedly achieved success at home, fought for the highest achievements in European competitions. The club was founded in 1882, it was founded by schoolchildren. Tottenham is the name of the street, Hotspur is the nickname of one of the heroes of Shakespeare’s plays.
The team’s first permanent logo appeared in 1921. It was a blue shield, inside which was a blue rooster on a white background.
In 1951, the image of a rooster was changed, now it is in a state of takeoff. The rest remained unchanged.
In 1967, it was decided to abandon the shield in the club’s logo. The image of the rooster remained the same, but now the bird stood on a soccer ball, without which it is impossible to imagine this game.
In 1972 the logo began to be used, where the rooster (the symbol of the team) stood on the ball. At the same time, he himself was in the background of a large ball. The logo became round, the name of the club was inscribed in the circle.
In 1973, a logo was created that was simplified compared to the previous one. On it there was only a rooster standing on a ball.
The 1983 logo is more colorful and uses lighter shades of blue. The rooster now stands not on the ball, but on a circle, inside which the letters F, C, T, H intersect with each other. Red lions are located on both sides of the circle. At the bottom of the coat of arms there is a yellow banner on which the Latin phrase “AUDERE EST FACERE” is written in blue letters, it means “To decide is to do”.
In the 1985 – 1986 season, a logo similar to the previous one was used, but all elements in it were painted in brighter colors.
The emblem of the 1987-1988 season is characterized by the use of light shades, the set of elements has not changed.
The next season the team played again with an updated logo. This time a combination of blue and light yellow was used.
In 1989, a number of elements in the logo were removed. There is a rooster standing on a circle in which the abbreviation of the club is inscribed. Lions hold a circle on the sides. At the bottom there is a banner on which the slogan of the club is written.
In 1995, the logo again became two-color, in which the rooster stands on the same ball with letters, and there is a shield around it.
After 2 years, the owners of the club again decided to make the logo more varied in terms of visual content. The yellow shield contains already familiar elements from the previous emblem, as well as a gray tower, green trees, red lions. The ball has returned under the cock, the letters (F, C, T, H) are now located inside another shield.
In 1999, they again decided to change the logo, returned to the 1983 version, making minor adjustments to it.
In 2006, it was decided to abandon the motto “AUDERE EST FACERE”. The logo became similar to the 1967 model, but in a more schematic and modern style, without unnecessary details.
Tottenham’s logos are traditionally dominated by dark blue, which goes well with white. The inscription in the logo is usually absent, but there is a variant of its writing under the ball in a special font.
