Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) have unveiled their logo ahead of the Indian Premier League 2022 (IPL 2022) mega auction. The KL Rahul-led franchise said that the new logo has been inspired by ancient Indian mythology.
The Sanjiv Goenka-owned franchise is one of the two new IPL teams, alongside Ahmedabad. While the name of the team was announced a week ago, the logo was unveiled on Monday.
“The mythical bird Garuda- who is a protector and enthroned with the power to move swiftly, has inspired us to create the winged emblem of the team. Garuda is omnipresent in every Indian culture and sub-culture,” LSG said in a statement.
“The tri-colour wings of the entity, symbolically represent Lucknow Super Giants’ Pan -India appeal. The body of the bird has been formed by a blue coloured bat to signify the game of cricket, there is a red ball with an orange seam too. It is like an auspicious ‘Jay tilak’,” it added.
“The identity, as a whole, is endowed with strong positive energy to soar higher and higher and achieve success. Lucknow Super Giants is a team for every Indian. It is a team that unites the nation,” read the statement further.
