CREST

History behind the club crest

The first crest BATE had was created in 1996. As the decision to take part in the Belarusian Championship was taken about two weeks before the start of the competition, all the documents on registering the club were to be submitted very quickly.

Club crest was one of the compulsory elements of the application, but for the shortage of time it was quite simplistic: rhombus with green, white and a football on it. The green symbolised a football pitch. Club Yellow Blue colours were not represented on this crest. Nevertheless, the rhombus became quite recognizable and remained the official logo of the club for six years and represented the brand of the club during first European matches and championship title.

In 2001 BATE played against AC Milan in UEFA Cup and this experience made the club management rethink their strategy as the club now was to be recognized not only in Belarus. Gennadiy Yakubovskiy, who acted as vice president of BATE at that time, was running the club's rebranding. Club colours were now dominant element of the crest. The flag in the middle is the symbol of strive for a win. This idea was taken from the logo of Dutch side PSV. In the autumn of 2002 this crest was approved.

This logo looked more modern, although was still simple and easy to comprehend. A child could easily draw it, and on the whole most of BATE supporters liked the new branding and quickly adopted it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the autumn 2008 BATE won their fifth Belarusian title. That enabled the club to integrate a star into the crest. In 2009 the logo's colours also were changed slightly to a brighter version.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the autumn of 2013 BATE reached an amazing milestone of 10 Belarusian Championship titles. Which meant the second star above the crest, a unique decoration no other Belarusian club could boast.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Since 2017 season our club made amendments to its logo. Now it has more national Belarusian flavour with traditional vyshyvanka (embroidery) that was very warmly greeted by all FC BATE Borisov supporters.
