Leicester City FC Primary Logo
Leicester City Football Club is one of the oldest and most successful football clubs in England. Founded in 1884, Leicester City has a long and storied history that includes several championships and major trophies. One of the most iconic elements associated with this club is its primary logo, which has gone through several iterations over the years to reflect changes within both the team itself as well as English football culture more broadly.
The earliest known version of Leicester City's primary logo was used from 1893-1902 when it featured an image of a fox sitting atop three soccer balls with two crossed flags behind them. This symbolized not only their nickname (the Foxes) but also their passion for sport - particularly soccer - and patriotism towards England's flag colors: red & white. The second iteration came about during World War I (1914-18) when they adopted a shield featuring an outline map of Britain surrounded by laurel wreaths on either side; this design was meant to emphasize loyalty to the country while still honoring their sporting roots at home in Leicestershire County.
Finally, after almost 70 years without any significant alterations being made, Leicester City unveiled its current logo in 1985; it features three lions rampant above crossed swords along with “LCFC” written underneath them all – symbols which are traditionally associated with strength & courage amongst British royalty or military forces alike. This emblem perfectly encapsulates everything that makes up this proud club: from its steadfast commitment to excellence on the pitch to embodying national pride off it; making sure everyone knows exactly who represents these famous colors whenever they take part in competitive action!
