“In honor to Madrid, the bear and the strawberry tree are gaining importance and the upper part of the badge is slightly rounded as a gesture to the first emblem of the club.

“Today we add one badge to those we've had along our history, but we don't renounce any of the previous ones. They're equally ours and we're very proud of all of them. The history continues.
