Redevelopment - Pittodrie Park became Pittodrie Stadium, 11 Aug 1968
Up until 1972, the club never had a registered logo or ‘motif’ as it was called back then. Use of the city coat of arms was sporadic and never official.
In the 1950s, the use of the AFC letters with a laurel surround was used on match programmes, but never on the Aberdeen kit. That design was altered in the early 1960s when the Dons
had the new design on their strips in 1965.
With the opening of the first ever club shop in Nelson Street near Pittodrie in 1972, the club commissioned Donald Addison to produce a new club logo, which in turn would be registered and used on all club merchandise and stationery.
