The much-anticipated team logo takes inspiration from the shape of Kite; that soars up and high in the sky, reflecting the team’s urge to scale new horizons of endless possibilities. As kite-flying is an integral part of Gujarat’s cultural heritage, the logo reflects the rich cultural heritage and legacy of the state. The logo also features a bolt of lightning, symbolizing the sheer energy and the immense power to illuminate even the darkest of the skies in a split second, which in the context of the team, will stand for their determination to turn adversity into triumph.
