Here's the 2 that I presented to the club. I always prefered the coat of arms but I think the ball and hand should have been the logo on its own. The club took it and added a few stuff around it but I'd have prefered it simpler.

The top one for me, maybe with a simple  scroll "Kilmarnock FC"

It's going to be on the neck of the shirt on the back. Current badge on front.

Any reason why? This could really ruin the whole thing especially if it's in full technicolour. 

That hand badge would've been cracking on the strip with the 150th crest used for other stuff

Those are both absolutely beautiful, especially the hand and ball.

The Pistol Fingers and Ball the club used looks tacky and bit generic, compared to your 2019 version of the 1869 version.  

Looks like the club adapted the design above to the current (brilliant) badges layout and chucked in a bit of Man City!

For my 2 cents: I reckon both the coat of arms and club version have too much going on.  IMO a simple logo like that looks classy and requires no wording around it.  Has alll thew important elements of our usual badge too. And every Killie fan knows what that is, even if they didn't know it was the original badge, they'd soon find out.

My two cents are that the coat of arms logo is a f**king screamer and would have been a major PR win. Its classy, provokes a sense of history and covers almost every base in terms of representing all club logos to date.

The 150 logo is too modern and clean cut, I think the club have missed a trick.

I didn't make the coat of arms up, that's already our coat or arms, given to us in 1992 by the Lord Lyon. That's my interpretation of it. We've never used the whole thing, just the crest at the top. Here's the image from the certificate below along with my version in colour. It used to be on the entrance to the directors box at the ground. The legal wording that describes the coat of arms is what counts and I designed my version to fit with the wording.

I’m disappointed the main badge isn’t the 150th one. For a one off top I would have expected that especially when you see the items in the club shop for sale. 

Was out clubs hands, a certain Lord wasn't playing ball and only let them put it on the back as a compromise I heard

Fair enough mate. I just wanted to buy one and get a gold or silver pen for players to sign and frame with the badge on front. Would be a proper one off collectors item.

If true that must be one of Mr. Lyons pettiest decisions yet. Don't see how he could object to just the ball and hand?

I hope the current badge is only in white outline and not full colour

IMO I would rather have embroidering round the main badge to this. wanted to get it framed and up on the office wall but it would mean hiding the 150th anniversary bit. shame that

I got the reference, that’s why I think the logo is a great nod to the past and a collaboration of all our badges through the past 150 years. 

 

On the team photo... surely the club will have current players posing in the same fashion as the original squad photo for the 150 kit launch! 

P45 time for the PR team if not :P

I don't care if this was our first strip or not.  I don't think it's a Killie strip.

what is it then? 

It's not a traditional lillie strip, we play in hoops or preferably stripes.   For me I don't like it.

This might be a radical or stupid suggestion, but why can’t fans just buy the new strip, unpick the badge and put their own badge on it. 

Get the strip signed and it certainly would be a collectors item.....

okay...stupid idea.
