Colours and Badge

Chester's original home colours

Chester's original colours were red and white, and these colours were used until the club temporarily disbanded in 1899. The colours were changed to green and white, in 1901 when the club moved to Whipcord Lane. Various combinations were used until, the outbreak of World War I, these included green shirts and white shorts, green and white stripes and green and white halves. In 1919 the colours changed again, with their new dark green shirts earning Chester the nickname the Ivies. 1920 saw another change of colours, this time to black and white, which earned Chester the nickname Magpies. Black and White remained the colours until 1930, when they were changed to blue and white stripes. For the next thirty years the colours remained unchanged, with the exception of the 1952–53 season, when Chester adopted white shirts and black shorts.

The colours were changed yet again in the 1959–60 season, when it became green shirts and socks with gold trim and white shorts. 1962 saw Chester revert to blue and white stripes, albeit with a much thinner blue stripe, and blue shorts instead of the previously used black shorts. The 1968–69 season saw Chester change to an all sky blue kit, which remained for four years. In the 1972–73 season the club again reverted to blue and white stripes, and in 1974 the seals badge appeared on the kit for the first time. A shirt sponsorship first appeared on Chester's kit in the 1982–83 season. The blue and white and seals badge disappeared in the 1983–84 season, as the re -named Chester City F.C. changed to blue shirts and white shorts. The shirt became predominately blue in the 1988–89 season for the final season at Sealand Road. The first season at the Deva Stadium saw the colours change a blue shirt with white speckles. The colours returned to blue and white stripes the following season. From 1995, the club appeared in blue and white stripes of varying thickness and shades.

In the 1958–59 season the city's coat of arms was augmented onto the shirt. During the early to mid 1960s, the supporters association badge was used. From 1974–75 to 1982–83, the club used the seals badge. The design was picked from a competition held by a local newspaper, with the winner coming from the school of art in Handbridge. The club's final crest was an adaptation of the City of Chester crest.

Famous quotes containing the words colours and, badge and/or colours:

    The sounding cataract
    Haunted me like a passion: the tall rock,
    The mountain, and the deep and gloomy wood,
    Their colours and their forms, were then to me
    An appetite: a feeling and a love,
    That had no need of a remoter charm,
    By thought supplied, or any interest
    Unborrowed from the eye.—
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)

    Signor Antonio, many a time and oft
    In the Rialto you have rated me
    About my moneys and my usances.
    Still have I borne it with a patient shrug,
    For sufferance is the badge of all our tribe.
    You call me misbeliever, cutthroat dog,
    And spit upon my Jewish gaberdine,
    And all for use of that which is mine own.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    My faith is the grand drama of my life. I’m a believer, so I sing words of God to those who have no faith. I give bird songs to those who dwell in cities and have never heard them, make rhythms for those who know only military marches or jazz, and paint colours for those who see none.
    Olivier Messiaen (1908–1992)
