The wheel in the logo gets its origin from the famous Konark Temple of Odisha. The temple is designed in the form of a chariot and these 24 chakras are the wheels of it. Its position in the logo represents movement and development. The club always strives for excellence, and believes in youth power and thus the wheel of time sits at the crest of the logo.
The ship is a representation of GMS, the parent company of the club. GMS is world’s largest buyer of ships and offshore assets. Speaking on the occasion, Club Director, Rohan Sharma said, “Our logo is the first step towards connecting with the people of Odisha. It’s a very vibrant and a colourful state and the logo represents it. The Chakra in the logo is again a reflection of the rich heritage and the culture of Odisha.”
Along with the logo, the club has adopted #AmaTeamAmaGame as its official tagline, which translates to Our Team, Our Game.
