Elon Musk has been concerned in some unusual emblem design choices in his time. In spite of everything, he crowdsourced the creation of an X emblem for his Twitter rebranding, and his electrical automotive firm, Tesla, has a emblem that appears like an IUD.
Now, so as to add to the listing, evidently Musk’s rocket firm SpaceX has begun utilizing a wierd emblem that bears an uncanny likeness to that of an beginner Scottish soccer membership. It is not among the finest new logos by any measure, however the membership in query desires to speak.
East Lothian’s Haddington City AFC started jokingly accusing Musk of “stealing” its emblem after SpaceX posted a photograph on X (the previous Twitter) displaying firm staff in entrance of the Mechazilla launch tower on the Starbase spaceport and growth facility in Boca Chica, Texas. The emblem seems a good distance within the distance, however zoom in on the bottom of the launch tower, and you may see a design that exhibits the define of a part of a circle and a goat in profile. Folks quickly started to level out the similarity with the small soccer membership’s badge.

Haddington City incorporates a goat on its emblem as a result of the animal is a part of the city’s id, showing in statues and the coat of arms. What connects SpaceX to highland ruminants is much less clear. It is in all probability a reference to the abbreviation for ‘best of all time’… or perhaps it is planning to ship one of many animals into house. Both means, Haddington City thinks Musk ought to sit down with them to speak enterprise.
The membership initially posted final week: “Why has @elonmusk stole our badge give it again!” It quickly added: “Our DMs are open @elonmusk come fund our new tracksuits. The membership later posted that it had been purchased by Elon Musk in a joke that was briefly repeated as reality by the New York Put up (irony, NYP!). It is now mocked up a suitably cosmos-inspired shirt design for a possible SpaceX sponsorship.
