The Football Association uses an emblem that indicates its connection to its home country. The England logo contains important national symbols, which speak of the incredible patriotism of the sports organization. Even the colors here are not chosen by chance – each of them has a deep meaning.

London, England
Now the main symbol on the England team’s logo is the lion, who replaced a leopard, the symbol of the Plantagenet dynasty, who ruled the country from 1154. But then the future animal was depicted alone on a red background, symbolizing a blood-stained battlefield. In 1189, Richard the Lionheart ascended the throne, and during his reign, he added two more predators to the emblem, which the islanders dubbed “the coming lions are on their guard.” Why three?

According to one of the versions, when Richard came from the crusade and regained his throne, usurped by his brother, he changed the old seal depicting two struggling lions to a new one, symbolizing a sign of power renewal. According to another version, after liberation from captivity and payment of ransom, Richard needed money, and introduced a new seal, forcing vassals to pay for the assertion of their rights.

Meaning and History

New England Revolution Logo History
In 1872, during the first international match with Scotland, the British needed a logo as a symbol of national pride. Therefore, they chose the Three Lions. Blue and white ones replaced gold and red colors. White is the basis of the English flag – St. George. Three lions are depicted on the royal coat of arms of England, so the Football Association asked permission to use it from the royal family.

10 Tudors’ roses are white and red flowers, which are also present on England’s logo as a symbol of reconciliation between York and Lancaster after the Wars of the Roses in 1485. It is unclear why there are ten roses. Perhaps, it means the number of players. But what happened to a goalkeeper?

What is England?

England – the national team representing England in international football competitions. The Football Association governs it. It is one of the oldest and most successful national teams, with victories in many major tournaments. The team played its first match in 1870.

The England national football team, which upholds the country’s honor in international competitions, has had several versions of the same emblem since the 1950s. All seven versions feature identical rectangular heraldic shields with a sharp base. Inside them are three guardian lions and ten Tudor roses.

The heraldic animals are taken from the seal of King Richard I and symbolize the team’s patriotism. The roses represent the ten divisions of the Football Association – one for each. However, the traditional colors did not appear immediately: from 1879 to 1949, the shield with lions was only adorned with a crown, which subsequently disappeared.

Starting in 2003, the England national football team periodically used an emblem with a five-pointed star located right where the crown used to be. It represents the victory in the 1966 World Cup.

Font and Colors

From 1993 to 2009, the word “England” was added to the shield. Initially, it was executed in a serif font, but in 2003, designers changed the letter design, opting for a simple sans-serif typeface. Modern logos do not have inscriptions.

The graphic symbols of the team are surprisingly similar if you do not consider a slight difference in details and palette. The lions were always blue or navy, except for the 2012-2013 period. The shield’s outline usually matched the color of the heraldic animals. The flowers were traditionally red – designers decided not to change the original look of the Tudor roses.
