It was decided to go back to the team’s roots and refine the original coat of arms of Newcastle upon Tyne. Thus, composition artists added a shield, painted black and white stripes, which recalls team shirts. But the turret over the shield remained the same. The royal lion with the flag of St. George symbolizes the exploits of the city, which was attacked several times in the 14th century and besieged by Scots during the civil war. Speaking about two seahorses, they remained on the emblem, but the inscription “brave defenders” was replaced by the name of the club. There was no place on the modern Newcastle logo only for the magpie, but the nickname of the Newcastle players was fixed in people’s minds forever.
