Badge of the Day #69 (KRC Genk #2)

Today we present an image of another of the recently-acquired additions to the collection in the form of a second object to represent KRC Genk, in this case an earlier, 1990s' vintage, version of the club’s logo, with the ‘G’ composed of a number of small yellow stars on the blue ground appearing, at least at first glance, not entirely dissimilar to the European Union symbol. For more background on TOoT’s leanings towards Genk, & the badge of what is their current crest, please redirect here.

As an aside, investing-in & blogging the first badge had hardly enhanced the team’s fortunes on the pitch, with only one league victory for Genk since, until yesterday's 2 - 0 win at Mechelen arrested the alarming slump of a run of six successive defeats either side of the Jupiler League’s mid-winter break, with recent elimination from the Belgian Cup – as holders - also being factored-in as the other aspect of a double-whammy, but of course on-field successes & failures, & the vagaries of, are regarded philosophically, & affection endures (being the operative word, under such inauspicious & trying circumstances).
