Inspiration Of The Logo
The inspiration of the logo has been drawn from ancient Indian mythology, revealed the Lucknow franchise.
“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,” said the Lucknow franchise while explaining the design of the logo.
“The tricolour 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’. 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,” the franchise added.
Lucknow Super Giants have signed KL Rahul for INR 17 crore - the joint-most fee for a player in IPL - to lead the side in upcoming edition of the marquee event. Meanwhile, their other two picks from the players’ draft were Australia all-rounder Marcus Stoinis (INR 9.2 crore) and Indian leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi (INR 4 crore).
Exactly a week before, the franchise had announced its name after finalizing it through a crowd-sourced contest with the name ‘Naam Banao, Naam Kamao’.
