Nicknames

Säntjana Losse are generally referred to as 'Losse' by the public, but are officially nicknamed 'Jeneraalid' (The Generals) due to the fact that their red and black colours were worn by Karolian soldiers at the time of the club's founding.

Rivalry with Säntjana Linna FC

Losse have a long-running rivalry with the other dominant club in Säntjana, Linna. The two teams both vie for the top places in the national leagues and competitions and derby matches are often exciting events which draw capacity crowds. Linna have won twelve matches more than Losse, but lost more times at home.

One ironic fact not lost on Losse fans is that Linna adopted a modified version of the city seal as their logo, which contains a castle.
