The idea of founding a football club in Taubaté appeared when the football fans José Pedro de Oliveira, Jayme Tindal and Frederico Livrero had a meeting at Associação Comercial, and they decided to study the viability of founding a football club in the city. At that meeting they decided that the name of the club would be Sport Club Taubaté.
On October 25, 1914, the colors of the club were chosen: blue and white. On November 1, 1914, the club was founded as Sport Club Taubaté.

Symbols and colors
The club's mascot is a donkey, known as Burro da Central (burro means donkey in Portuguese). In 1954, the club played the Campeonato Paulista second division final against Comercial of Ribeirão Preto and fielded an ineligible player in the match. Because of this mistake, the press of São Paulo nicknamed the club Burro (Donkey) not just meaning for donkey but for being dumb because of this mistake.
The blue color of the club represents the infinity of the sky, and the white color represents peace.
