The black kit is a tribute to the 1901 kit that lifted the club’s second Swedish league title. Black became the official home color in 1909 when the club needed an alternative to the blue in their crest. Now, AIK is the only team in the world with a fully black home kit.
AIK’s badge was the result of a competition for a new club logo. Fritz Carlsson-Carlings’s design won the contest in 1898, and was later voted the most beautiful crest in football. The towers were originally modeled after the Stockholm city wall, and represent tradition. The strength of AIK is shown in the sash across the shield, while the club’s value of Glory is depicted in the Sol Invictus(“Invincible Sun”) in the upper-left.
The Public Athlete Club (Almänna Idrottsklubben) was founded in 1891 by brothers Isidor and Paul Behrens, with a vision of glory. With the supreme confidence to chase greatness, idling is unacceptable for the club. Dedicated supporters have cheered AIK to 11 domestic titles and 8 Swedish cups, and the club now sits confidently at the top of Swedish football.
