The Meaning Behind Sports Teams’ Crests
Proudly wearing a sports jersey is something many of us do every weekend as we cheer on our favourite teams; yet not many of us know what the crests of our favourite teams mean. The start of the Rugby World Cup got us thinking about what emblems teams use to represent them and why.
From the rose on the England rugby kit and the team starting their ‘wear the rose’ campaign to encourage people to show their support, to the shamrock on the Ireland kit and the feathers on the Welsh crest – we couldn’t help but wonder what it all means. Our latest infographic explores the meaning behind these crests, as well as those of a range of other popular sporting teams, such as football teams like A.S Roma and West Ham, as well as American Football teams, baseball teams and cricket teams. So next time you don your favourite sports jersey you can wow all your friends with your new found knowledge on what the badge you’re wearing means.
