Badge of the Day #81 (Dinamo Zagreb)


Following the flurry of mostly Serbian clubs, of the more obscure variety, featured recently, Trešnjevka Zagreb excepted, today we present the crest of the dominant Croatian one in the form of Dinamo Zagreb (who could be regarded as a team for whom we have an affection on a continental scale but are behind Hajduk Split domestically & also Red Star Belgrade when considered in terms of the former Yugoslavia, which is, of course, often here at TOoT), which, by a curious oversight, we’ve neglected to post until now, despite it featuring in the collection for a while – the badge was, in fact, among the earlier acquisitions & appeared within the arrangement of such displayed upon the canvas as originally photographed & blogged here.

The object is a contemporary one, incorporating as it does the Croatian red & white chequered flag with the design, along with the obvious ‘d’ for Dinamo, thus it has no hauntological quality, but nevertheless the crest is an effective piece of design.
