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.

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.
