Colors and logos
The traditional colors of the EWE Baskets Oldenburg basketball club are yellow and blue. From 2009 to 2018, the team adopted a slightly reworked logo, this time with a white background and which again featured an eagle. In 2018, the club adopted its massively modernized current logo, now round and with a different shade of blue. The eagle however is still on it.
