      There's a time and a place for such things.

        Twas the other way round in fair Salopia. The club wanted a logo they could trademark so ditched the town crest in favour of Clippy the Lion.

          Cheltenham did the same - couldn't trademark the town crest so went with a pigeon in a jester's hat, which always confused me because we had a perfectly decent bouncing ball logo from the late 80s/early 90s. We only started using the town crest in 1992.

            What PT said - This issue wasn't that councils banned clubs from using them. It was that clubs couldn't get exclusive rights to prevent people making hooky copies as the badges weren't trademarkable and so invented badges that they could trademark and thus enforce exclusivity.

              Tranmere are going back to the town coat of arms badge next season

              Though it is subtlety different, as was discovered recently when a huge version was plastered on a wall in Oxton, the local NIMBYs complained, discovered it could be construed as an advertisement and therefore need planning permission, and so to avoid this, it had to be changed into the Birkenhead coat of arms instead

                I'm three years late to this and I can't upload images from my phone (which is mildly annoying) but I really like Nantes Atlantique new logo, especially in contrast to their old logo.

                I'd always assumed that they were part of the same club as Handball Club de Nantes.

                Are there any other sports clubs named after airports?

                  Crawley Down changed their name to Crawley Down Gatwick in 2012.

                    Airbus in the second tier of the Welsh pyramid play next to Broughton Airport and are named after the planes built nearby.

                      To be specific, their origins are as the works team of Airbus (and the previous incarnations of the factory back to Vickers-Armstrong in the post-war era).

                      This is their badge, to bring it back on topic ;

                            I saw Stansted at Hoddesdon Town in the Essex Senior Lesgue late last year. They make nothing of their association with the airport. Wiki claim the clunky term "Airportmen" is one of their nicknames but everyone seemed to jist refer to them as The Blues, disappointingly.

                            Which contrasts with this lot who are nowhere near an airport :

                                As far as I can see, the gloriously named club "Prat" who play in the Segunda B in Spain make no mention of the major airport that is also in El Prat de llobregat

                                CS Otopeni who were briefly a thing in Romania before going out of business a few years ago, had the nickname Aviatorii

                                    Cardiff Airport play in the South Wales Alliance.

                                    Frankfurt's basketball team have spent the last decade as Fraport Skyliners thanks to a sponsorship deal with the local airport.

                                      Isn't Newcastle Jets' name and crest referring to a nearby air force base?

                                        Newcastle United Jets? No, no, no. That's too many names.

                                          Yeah, that's why I left out the United... so should they, why would you want to associate yourselves with that absolute shower right now?

                                            British Airways FC of the Combined Counties League D1 have a disappointing badge (above).

                                            Though when getting it off google I did discover that Athletic Madrid were known as "Athletic Aviacion de Madrid from 1939 to 1947 after a merger with a team set up by members of the Spanish Air Force."

                                              Oh boy. I can't believe that this is going to be Inter Milano's real logo.

                                                Yuck, though the name change (or re-emphasis of the name) is far worse a crime than the logo

                                                  It looks like a neo-Nazi / alt-right symbol

                                                    I don't expect either to survive the sale of the club, which is something that is currently being discussed and I expect to happen in the next one to three years.
