ORIGINS OF THE CLUB NAME

The squirrel has been adopted as something of a mascot for Omiya City (which in May 2001 became Saitama City) and "squirrel" in Spanish was selected as the name of the football club (the Spanish word for squirrel is actually ardilla, but in order to make it easier to pronounce correctly, the club name is spelled ARDIJA). The name was chosen in the belief that everyone, from children through to adults, feels a familiarity towards squirrels and by extension, the hope is that the club will be universally loved and develop close links with the region.

EMBLEM

OMIYA ARDIJA
A squirrel and ball feature on the emblem. The tail of the squirrel stands upright to symbolize a formidable defense as well as balance. The five stripes coming off the ball represent rapid attacking football and this is echoed by the stripe design on the squirrel's tail. At the same time the design is also evocative of the Nakasendo, one of the Edo Five Routes that runs through Omiya City (now Saitama City).

LOGO

OMIYA Ardija
The sharp, rapid image of a squirrel's front teeth is one of its key characteristics and here they have been integrated into the logo to express sharp skills and incisive movement. The club's keywords of SPEEDY - ACTIVE - AGGRESSIVE are expressed in the logo.

MASCOT

Ardy

Ardy

The squirrel, which has been adopted as a mascot for Omiya City (now Saitama City), is also the motif for the Club Mascot. Ardy has orange fur, the same as the club color, and is a symbol of the close ties between ARDIJA and Omiya City (now Saitama City). The characteristic tail of the squirrel can be used to depict several different poses and express movement.

Miya

Miya

Miya was born to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the founding of the club. From her face to her build, her hips and her legs, she expresses femininity in every pose. Compared with Ardy, Miya is smaller in terms of her height, head size, torso, arms, legs and spikes.
