The new club's crest / logo (along with its name) was unveiled at a press conference on 1 July 1999, the official date given to the club's formation. The crest symbolises the head of a wolf.

Although there are no wild wolves left in Denmark today, folklore states that (some two hundred years ago) they used to live on the moors where the cities of Herning and Ikast have since been built.


The club crest also displays the club name and its year of formation. All black Home kit and all purple Away kit.

The clubs main rival is Viborg FF, the derby is claimed to be the second biggest in Denmark after FC København and Brøndby IF.
