The CD Logrones It was founded in 1940 but he inherited the shield of his predecessor CD Logroño.

This is where you begin to speculate on the origin and why the CDL prepared that shield. One theory revolves around the author, Simon Tejada, who it was of Jewish origin and may therefore decided to include the Star of David.

Alternatively deals saturnine Iñiguez, club president 1924, who was a member of Freemasonry. Star of David is also known as Solomon's Seal and is one of the symbols of the Masons so it is a perfectly valid option.

By last, even less tenable, option that each point of the star representing the shield is training a team on the pitch is set. In this case the lower tip would be the keeper, the following four defenders, subsequently two midfield and finally four front. However would “loose” the last point there that say that does not seem entirely sustainable that possibility.

Anyway, What is clear is that the CD Logrones, his shield, their stadium and their players, to the delight of those who enjoy that authentic football 80 Y 90 where the grass is smeared when it rained and where footballers were far from those of today. pure Nostalgia.
