A Short History Of The Manly Sea Eagles
Founded in 1946, the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles were admitted to the NSWRL first-grade competition in 1947. The club adopted the maroon and white colours, influenced by the President’s Cup side, who in turn took their colours from the local freshwater surf lifesaving club. When it came to mascots, they chose the native bird of prey, the sea eagle, as their team emblem. The sea eagles logo first appeared in the 1950s as a white and maroon shield, with the sans serif type M and W. To avoid the confusion that they were not indeed ‘the seagulls’, the logo was redesigned in 1960 to look more like an eagle. In 1980, the crest featuring the eagle was officially adopted. It’s gone through a few more changes over the years. In 1998, the logo had more detail added, but many fans thought it looked a lot more cartoonish. The logo was simplified again in 2003 to become what we know and love today.
