Fog Rugby wins design award

The Fog is proud to announce that its coat-of-arms was recently recognized by the American Heraldry Society for excellence in heraldic design.

The arms were originally created by Fog scrumhalf Pete Arden in early 2001 for the team’s first jersey. A part-time graphic designer with a lifelong interest in heraldry, “Repete” wanted to create an emblem that could stand the test of time without looking trendy or dated — hence the traditional heraldic approach.

Since then, the distinctive silver, black, and blue shield has become an integral part of the club’s identity, turning up in everything from posters, kit bags, and recruiting cards to the club’s website and YouTube video channel.

More information about the meaning and symbolism behind the Fog’s coat of arms is available in the Symbols and Traditions section of our “About” page.
