Atlanta United FC Logo meaning
The team’s name, logo and colors were unveiled on July 7, 2015. The logo features a circle reminiscent of the city’s seal and Olympic heritage with a bold “A” at the center of the circle. Behind the “A” are five black and red stripes representing the five pillars of the team: unity, determination, community, excellence, and innovation.
The team’s official colors are black (for strength and power), red (or “Victory Red,” as the team calls it, for pride and passion), and gold (for a commitment to excellence). The team has become unofficially known as “The Five Stripes”, which correlates to the five stripes on the team’s inaugural home kits.
