Badge

Club founder René Dufaure de Montmirail drew inspiration from his personal seal, which featured interlaced letters "D" and "M", to create the club's first badge. .The club's motto, "Droit au but", dates from the days when the club's main sport was rugby, under the name "Football Club de Marseille".
