Manly Warringah Sea Eagles have today unveiled an exciting new commemorative logo to celebrate its 70th Year Anniversary in 2016.
The Sea Eagles were granted entry to the 1947 NSWRL first grade competition on November 4, 1946. The Club has since gone on to win eight premierships to become one of the most powerful and successful rugby league clubs in the game today.
Upon entering the NSWRL, Manly Warringah took on the colours of maroon and white. These were adopted from the colours of the first district representative rugby league team in the President's Cup. The colours were originally worn by the Freshwater Surf Lifesaving Club.
Manly Warringah chose the sea eagle – the native bird of prey on the Sydney coastline – as its emblem.
Sea Eagles CEO Joe Kelly said the 70th Year Anniversary logo captures the past and the present.
“The Sea Eagle logo is synonymous with the northern beaches and we’re proud to adopt one of the original designs that pays tribute to our great heritage,” Kelly said.
“It’s an incredible achievement to mark 70 years in the strongest rugby league competition in the world. Our proud Club has been built on the back of some wonderful players, teams and administrators that share a special bond with our community and supporters near and far.
“We’re looking forward to celebrating our 70th year with some great achievements on and off the field in 2016.”
The unveiling of the new logo coincides with the Club launching its 2016 Membership campaign tomorrow.
Fare-thee-well dear turkey of 2015...
Hope they have staffed appropriately for all the membership renewals tmrw.
Logo looks good though.
Saw this on Facebook today and i have to say I absolutely love it! Its our best emblem since the 90's in my opinion. Looks very strong, like we mean business. The Eagle we have been using for the last 18 years looks like it has something wrong with its eye. I have never been a fan. I have a good feeling about this year now.
Also wouldn't mind if a bit of that gold was thrown into a jersey either. That dark gold goes great with Maroon and white.
My God that is a beautiful crest. Well done to the club.
That Logo taking up the entire front of a jersey next year (even if it's a one off), that is what I would love to see.
Is this badge for all jerseys or just a special anniversary jersey?
That is a nice logo. Happy to wear that all season as our logo.
They will probably just have Zorba manning the phones tomorrow.
Your forgot about the penn family and Joe Kelly!!
Better ring before lunch time then
Luv it. Can't wait to see the boys holding the Telstra trophy next year with this on their jerseys.
Morning tea ......

It's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. I dare say it's our
