Leonardo defends PSG logo change

January 09, 2013

Paris Saint-Germain director Leonardo has defended the club’s decision to have a new official logo.

The French side have had the same badge since 1972, but are set to unveil a new design which reportedly sees the traditional primary deep blue of PSG changed to a lighter blue akin to Olympique Marseille.

However, the Brazilian has backed the decision to make the changes and says it has nothing to do with a perceived move away from the club’s heritage.

“The respect [for the history] is there,” the World Cup winner told L’Equipe.

“We have not decided to change the club logo because we don’t comply with history. PSG has already changed five times, [some] big clubs [have] changed 10 times.

“I think the misconception comes from the money and the power that we have. I am here for the history of this club.”

Early designs of the logo also see the word ‘Paris’ moved to the top of the circle with ‘Saint-Germain’ sitting beneath it.

They also appear without the cradle that previously sat beneath the Eiffel Tower, signifying the birth of King Louis XIV in Saint-Germain.

It has been reported that the logo could be unveiled this month.
