Since, at the beginning, only individual sports were being practiced in the Osman Pasha Mansion, there was no need for team colours or uniform. However, as the number of active sportsmen increased each passing day; Mehmet Şamil Bey, who had graduated from a well-known French school, asked the Founders Committee to hold a meeting on finding a badge for the club. He removed the pin badge he used in his school days bearing the colours of his school from his lapel and showed it around. He said, “We must have a crest just like this one, and all club members must wear it.” Those attending the meeting eagerly agreed to Mehmet Şamil Bey’s proposal. At the end of the meeting, it was agreed that the colours of the Club would be shown on the crest. The two principal colors of nature in full contrast to each other were chosen as the Club colours: Black and White…

Following the 1918 Mondros Treaty, Istanbul was conquered by the foreign forces. This period was not easy for the club and in consequence of this most of the rewards, cups and medals were lost in this period. However Beşiktaş managed to survıve and started sports activities in all branches just after the war.

Beşiktaş football team received the first cup of championship in 1920 after beating Darüssafaka 2-1. It was the first cup that club won in soccer in history.

Following the declerations of the Republic in 1923 the name of the club has been changed for the last time and became “Beşiktaş Jimnastik Kulübü” (Beşiktaş Gymnastics Club)

During the last 109 years Beşiktaş JK has the honor of being active in more then 25 branches in sports history of Turkey and supporting sport activities and creating sports facilities for the youth.

Beşiktaş JK organized “Atatürk Sports Day” together with Fenerbahce, Galatasaray and Günesspor on 24 May 1935. Later with the proposal of Beşiktaş JK “19 May Youth and Sports Festival” has been celebrated every year.

Beşiktaş is a multi-sports club and competes in football, basketball, volleyball, handball, athletics, table tennis, boxing, bridge, wrestling, rowing, beach football, gymnastics, chess and disabled sports with many major honours won in each.
