Meanwhile, the heart of San Diego FC’s crest is “The Flow,” a soccer-ball shaped symbol featuring 18 lines “woven into one,” a nod to the 18 cities that proudly make up San Diego County. The design also embodies the team’s four virtues: gratitude; proud, not loud; diversity; and a state of flow.

“We believe our crest truly reflects the essence and spirit of San Diego,” the club said at their reveal.
