LOS ANGELES, USA
Throughout history, Club Atlético Boca Juniors badge has been changed five times
The badge, flag and shirt are the most important symbols of our club. They represent its identity and its history shining in every corner of the planet for more than a century.
THE FIRST BADGE
The first badge dates back to 1922 and was used until 1955
The first badge dates back to 1922 and was used until 1955. It had a white background with a yellow horizontal band and the initials CABJ in yellow and blue.
WITH LAUREL LEAVES
Fifty years after the club was founded the club’s badge was redesigned and the colors were changed to make a closer match to the team’s shirt. The acronym was now black on a yellow band and two laurel leaves were added to celebrate the club’s 50th anniversary.
NAME IN FULL
In the Sixties the laurels marking the 50th anniversary were removed, the full name was written on the yellow band and a black border was added to make the badge stand out.
ONE TITLE, ONE STAR
In the Seventies, on the initiative of President Alberto J. Armando, one star was added to the badge for each title won, and was greatly received. The initials returned on the badge and the outline was yellow.
To make room for the stars for the previous 10 years of titles, the yellow band was removed and the initials were written in yellow to give the badge a greater visual impact.
THE LAST TOUCH
The only change that was made to the badge in October 2012 was the addition of the 52nd star, as approved by the Board in accordance with legal requirements.
