New York has a red club and a blue club, so green or yellow? Green and yellow, like Norwich? Or could be a white primary, like Spurs or Swansea, with black or green or gold trim.
yeah I think it has to incorporate those elements and colors to match with the borough’s flag’s major symbols.watch it be sky blue ( queens flag) and people will freak out and say its a nycfc B team because of the that.
This amateur team had something interesting:
- Excluding maybe colors, I doubt we see multiple elements from the county flag.
- I'll be very surprised if there is a crown. Nobody much cares about Queen Catherine of Braganza. It's not even clear the place was named after her. When some Portugese-Americans tried to erect a statue to her in Queens in the 1980s they raised the funds but abandoned the project in the face of opposition because they said she represented the slave trade, colonialism, and even Britain (apparently both some Irish and pro-1776 Americans were against it). In today's culture I don't see this team going there at all, especially with their diversity emphasis.
- Same for the tulips, roses and wampum. You can try to tell it as a nice story about different cultures coming together but few are interested in interpreting it that way and there will be opposition and push back.
- I'm tired of the 7 train as the symbol of Queens, but they might like it for a DV7 tie-in, and if they do plan eventually to build in Willets Point.
- I do like the Unisphere as a symbol of Queens. It also works well with the theme they are developing that Queens has people from more places speaking more languages than any other city/county. It might not be the primary crest element, but a globe is a likely element at least, perhaps a globe/soccer ball. There you have (1) Queens, (2) as microcosm of the world, (3) bringing people together through soccer. According to their video, that's what the team is all about.
That's quite the interesting color scheme; can't wait to see how it looks on a kit!
not bad, its different. I thought they were going to go with something related to the queens borough flag.
Agreed that the explainers are forced and its tiring.Most logo explainers are forced. This one is no different.

The heart of a "Q" represents diversity?
A shield represents inclusion?
The edges of the shield specifically represent community?
These are beyond vapid.
The rest of it is fine, though again I note as a Queens resident of 20+ years that using a subway line to represent a borough that has terrible subway coverage is an odd choice. And picking the 7 train basically tells basically every neighborhood to the southwest of Woodside that their borough's most notable feature is a subway line that is irrelevant to them.
That said, I give the badge a tepid thumbs-up. I liked it better before I read the explainer.
i havent checked but for the logo rebrands of other national teams and for example juventus, did they have diagrams explaining the changes? or is this a US only thing?Agreed that the explainers are forced and its tiring.
And at the same time, I have to give credit to the people who come up with that shit. Like, how do you take the font of the letter and turn it into some "reason" (forced or not) on how it "represents" the local community and club?
Again, I want to be clear that I'd rather they not do this type of thing and it gets an eye-roll from me, but this is definitely not something that I could come up with, haha.
