badge and colors history:
In Leeds' first 15 years, the club kit was modeled on Huddersfield Town's blue and white striped shirts, white shorts and dark blue socks with blue and white rings on the turnovers, because Huddersfield's chairman Hilton Crowther was attempting to merge the two clubs. He eventually left Huddersfield to take over at Leeds.

In 1934, Leeds switched to blue and yellow halved shirts incorporating the city crest, white shorts and blue socks with yellow tops. The kit was worn for the first time on 22 September 1934. In 1950, Leeds switched to yellow shirts with blue sleeves and collars, white shorts and black, blue and gold hooped socks. In 1955, Leeds changed again to royal blue shirts with gold collars, white shorts, and blue and yellow hooped socks, thus echoing the original Leeds City strip. In 1961, Don Revie introduced a plain white strip throughout, in the hope of emulating Spanish side Real Madrid.

The club adopted their first badge in 1934, using the city crest as Leeds City had, which survived in various guises until 1961. A perching owl was added to the strip in 1964 as the club's emblem. The design was a surprise, given Revie's superstition about the symbolism of birds. The owl badge came from the city crest, which itself was based on the crest of Sir John Saville, the first alderman of Leeds. The owl was normally navy blue, but was colored gold in the 1968 Football League Cup Final. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, Leeds used the LUFC script found running down the center of the current badge. However, this was presented in a diagonal fashion rather than the current vertical.

In 1973 came the embodiment of 1970s imagery, with the iconic LU smiley badge. Revie's predilection for gimmicks was years ahead of its time, and done with the explicit intention of gaining acceptance from a public outside West Yorkshire. In 1977, the smiley badge was reversed from yellow with a blue smiley to blue with a yellow smiley; the following year it was back to yellow but enclosed, in a circle with the words Leeds United AFC surrounding it.

In 1978–79, a new badge was worn that was similar to the previous season's smiley but had the design of a peacock. In 1984, another badge was introduced, lasting until 1998, making it the longest lived of the modern era. The rose and ball badge was distinctive, in the traditional blue, gold and white, incorporating the White Rose of York, together with the club's name, and a football in the core section: a truncated icosahedron similar to the Adidas Telstar but in Leeds' colors white and yellow.

In the 1998–99 season, the club logo changed again with some modifications of the previous version. It again featured the white rose and was blue, gold and white in color, reading "LUFC" vertically down the center. The current badge was officially adopted in 1999 when the football from the 1984 badge was added to the center of the rose.

The replacement to this badge, due to enter service for the 2018–19 season and drafted in time for Leeds' centenary year, was revealed on 24 January 2018, depicting the "Leeds Salute". This new badge attracted criticism from huge numbers of fans, resulting in an online petition over 77,000 signatures strong against the design's introduction. The club then decided to "re-open the consultation process" in light of the poor reception the new crest engendered.
