The Football Association of Norway (Norges Fotballforbund or NFF) has unveiled a new association logo symbolic of the core values of Norwegian football and revealed a new team crest that will be worn on the national team jerseys.
The new logo is a modernized and much simpler design compared to the previous one. But it stayed true to tradition with the round shape that symbolizes the idea that football is for all Norwegians regardless of ethnicity, religious conviction, or sexual orientation.
“The new logos clarifies that we are a football family with common values and identity,” NFF Secretary General Kjetil Siem said at the launch.
The outer edge grey with the right side completed by the ‘Norges Fotballforbund’ text. The foundation year of 1902 is in grey within the circle along with the ‘NFF’ in red and blue lettering representing the colors of the flag.
A traditional shield crest will be worn on the national team jerseys. The border of the crest is gold with two Leo lions at the top of the crest holding up a gold trim circle with NFF in the center in blue. Norge is written at the top of the badge in blue. The flag of Norway is on the bottom 2/3 of the badge.
The new badge will debut on the team jerseys in the next round of qualifying fixtures for Euro 2016.
