Colours and badge

Yellow is the traditional UE Santa Coloma color. Manly of the home kits alternate yellow and black. Until 2013 the badge was representing Santa Coloma's pre-romanical church tower and the most traditional team icon, the squirrel.

Nowadays still representing the Santa Coloma's squirrel and the colours of the Andorran nation with the motto's country "Virtus Unita Fortior".


The club's nickname, as seen from the crest, is Esquirols (Squirrels) due to the number of the animals that live around the town of Santa Coloma. There is a long-standing tradition for a number of fans to wear squirrel costumes at the club's last home game of each season.
