Inspiration of Crest
A football club based out of Spruce Meadows needs a crest that represents quality and tradition. It needs to tie into the history and pageantry of the place and people. The Flag of The Lord Strathcona’s Horse is a beautiful representation of this.
At the heart of the crest is the chevron. Both an homage to the military aspect of Cavalry FC and the Lord Stathcona’s Horse tie-in , but also a tip of the hat to the location in Alberta Foothills next to to stunning Rocky Mountains.
The Football. A nod to the past and future. A distinction for the citizens of Calgary, Southern Alberta, Canada, and the World to recognize this unique club’s position as a burgeoning soccer city.

Lord Strathcona’s Horse
Inspiration of Colours
Black on Black
Synonymous with Calgary along with the beautiful vista of the Rocky Mountains, is the lush green landscape of the foothills. The name Spruce Meadows itself evokes thoughts of pristine green lawns, perfectly manicured. Additionally, the flag of The Lord Strathcona’s Horse is Red lettering atop a field of dark military green. The colour dovetails perfectly with a club based in the foothills and playing out of history steeped Spruce Meadows.
The region is famously red and black, as seen in other popular sports franchises and Universities of the area – Stamps, Flames, Dinos – but the inspiration for the red in the Cavalry FC badge is the colour of the Lord Strathcona regimental flag.
