Emirates Club, a professional association football club based in Ras al-Khaimah (RAK), launched its new logo yesterday (August 23), marking its recent merger with RAK Club.
Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Ras Al Khaimah, launched the new logo at an event held at the Al Hamra Convention Centre.
Sheikh Saud said that the merger of the two clubs marked a new stage in the development of sports in the emirate and noted that it reflected the solidarity and spirit of cooperation among the emirate's youth to join hands and work together for a common greater purpose in the sports arena.
UAE has been able to make great strides in a variety of sports, both regionally and internationally, and the country has created a modern sporting infrastructure with high-tech facilities and coaching centres, he added.
He praised the sporting fraternity in the country for their role in nurturing the country's talent with the active support of various sports associations and clubs. RAK Ruler also announced the formation of an honorary council for the Emirates Cultural and Sports Club and wished its new board of directors all success.
The new logo unveiled at the function has a shield shape with a falcon at the centre and seven stripes in the background, symbolizing the spirit of unity among the seven emirates.
Featuring the traditional national colours of red and white, the falcon in the centre of the logo denotes speed, strength and courage and is a tribute to the national emblem of the UAE. The logo was designed by Asia Sports Marketing.
Sheikh Mohammed bin Saqr Al Qasimi, chairman of RAK Club, said that the new initiative would help the club to achieve the goal of promoting professional sports development in the emirate and upgrade its facilities. He appealed to the business community and institutions in Ras Al Khaimah to wholeheartedly support the club in their endeavours.
