The nowadays crest still represent the icons of UE Santa Coloma, featuring the club colours (yellow and black) and the year of fundation (1986).
The club have an alternative badge (main crest during the first leg of the 2013-14 season) 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.
