HistoryEdit

Clube do Remo was founded on 5 February 1905, as Grupo do Remo. The founders, before founding Remo, had abandoned Sport Club do Pará. On 14 February 1908, Remo was closed, after the club's general assembly. On 29 March 1908, Remo's partners and Sport Club do Pará made a deal, and Remo was officially extinct in 1908. On 15 August 1911, Remo was reorganized following the initiative of Antonico Silva, Cândido Jucá, Carl Schumann, Elzaman Magalhães, Geraldo Motta, Jayme Lima, Norton Corllet, Oscar Saltão, Otto Bartels and Palmério Pinto.

In 1950, Remo held a tour to Venezuela at the invitation of the football federation of the country to compete in the Caracas International Tournament, which, according to some publications, may have been the precursor of the Little World Cup, played between the 1950s and 1960s. The team held five matches, getting four wins (La Salle, Unión, Military School and Deportivo Italia) and only one loss to Loyola, considering the higher strength of the Venezuelan football at the time. Remo is still seeking official recognition of the title by the CONMEBOL. If accepted, will be the first international title in club history.

Remo also has great campaigns on the national scene. His most outstanding campaigns were the 7th place in the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A in 1993 and the semifinals in the Copa do Brasil in 1991 – these results represent the best performance of a northern team in the history of both competitions.

In 2005, the club won the Campeonato Brasileiro Série C. This was the club's first national title. The club also has three titles in the Taça Norte and 1 Torneio Norte-Nordeste, as well as being one of the largest state winners.

SymbolsEdit

CrestEdit

The first Remo's emblem consisted of a navy blue rectangle, with the center a white anchor, in obliquely, circulated by thirteen stars of the same color. After the reorganization of 1911, the anchor gave way to a format shield similar to a buoy lifeguard, crossed by a pair of oars. At the top was the description "Grupo do Remo" and the environment, the initials "GR" intertwined.

In 1914, the college is renamed Clube do Remo. With this change, the shield also is renewed. The circular uniformity of the previous badge is maintained by adding the typical symmetrical side cut-outs of British heraldry - heritage of some founders of the club with academic training in Europe, especially in England. The acronym GR gives way to the CR.

Over the years, the shield has undergone some changes, without change your style. The last change occurred in 2013, seeking to rescue the origins of the club and to combine the concept of modernity. According to the Brand Manual, the Bluean shield now has a finish on the sidelines and superior to characterize volume and three-dimensionality, in addition to the reversal of the stars color according to the degree of importance of each title - five white representing the five state titles consecutive and golden, representing the national title of Campeonato Brasileiro Série C in 2005.
