Fenerbahçe Logo

History of the Fenerbahçe Logo

The “Fenerbahçe Logo” or “Fenerbahçe Club Emblem,” which adorns the chests of millions of fans today, was drawn in 1910 by Topuz Hikmet, the club’s member number 33 and the “Penalty King” of his time, and was manufactured in Germany by Tevfik Haccar (Tasçı).

The five-color badge carries the inscription “Fenerbahçe Sports Club 1907” in a white frame, symbolizing cleanliness and sincerity with white; red symbolizing love and loyalty, expressing the symbol of the Turkish flag. The yellow heart in the middle represents admiration and envy for Fenerbahçe, while navy blue signifies nobility. Rising between these two colors, the mackerel branch represents the power and strength of being a Fenerbahçe supporter. The green color signifies the destined success of this rising power.

Topuz Hikmet tells the story of the Fenerbahçe emblem as follows:

“After our club’s color changed from yellow-white to yellow-navy blue, the idea of having a badge adorned with our new colors came up. My friends left the drawing of this badge to me. First, I combined the colors of our flag, red and white. Then, I drew a heart shape on red and painted it yellow-navy blue. On top of it, I drew an oak branch, symbolizing courage, strength, and robustness. I wrote the name of our club and the establishment date on the white part. While drawing our badge, I tried to convey the meaning: to serve this club with a devotion coming from the heart. My friends liked the shape I drew, and the new badges were manufactured in Germany with the guidance of our friend Tevfik Haccar, who was there at the time. After the acceptance of the new letters, it was preserved in the same way. Only the inscription “Fenerbahçe Sports Club 1907″ was changed with the new letters.”
