Olympic FC Jubilee Announcement:
Olympic FC will be venturing into a new era in 2018 with the modernisation of the club’s current identity.
The new logo serves as a continuation of the positive progression which the club has been building throughout 2017.
Since the current logo’s unveiling in 2008, Olympic FC has achieved high levels of success, including a triumphant National Premier League campaign in 2013 and a round of 16 finish in the FFA Cup of 2014.
Club President Peter Ioannidis explained that the new logo symbolises the club’s future endeavours, while embracing the extensive history which Olympic possesses.
“The club has a vast, rich history which has to be recognised. As a football club, this must be acknowledged in order to develop into a stronger entity.”
“When conceptualising the new identity, the strong heritage elements of Olympic FC were incorporated into the logo along with the clubs future vision. As a result, we believe the new logo symbolises both the historical and future elements of the club.”
Each element on the refreshed Olympic FC logo represents the clubs historical achievements, while also incorporating a sleek modern design.
The new club crest exhibits elements from the old identity with the torch remaining the focal point which represents the continuous burning flame symbolised throughout Greek history. The olive wreath recognises the achievements of Olympic FC’s players and the victories from the past 50 years. A “no retreat, no surrender” approach is derived from the shield which represents stability, protection and boldness. Synonymous with football, the vertical stripes display our sporting audacity and the competitive nature of which Olympic FC is built on. Finally, the word Olympic is a name which symbolises and encompasses the morality, honour, competitiveness, splendour, sportsmanship and the fair play value of the ancient Olympians.
The club will continue to don the renowned red and white stripes for the 2018 season while the new logo is distributed into all media outlets, signage and official club communications.
