English RoseFootball Supporters' Federation

The first emblem of the England football team was worn in the world’s very first international match against Scotland, in Glasgow in 1872. It consisted of three lions within a shield, in a similar stance to that of the English Coat of Arms. These lions were navy blue and the only distinguishable features were red eyes and mouths. 

In 1949, in a possible attempt to distinguish the badge from the one used by the England cricket team, a new emblem was designed by the College of Arms. Ten Tudor Roses were scattered around the lions probably to represent the ten regional divisions, each of which has a seat on the Football Association Council.

The Football Association have used the same emblem as the England team since 1949. In celebration of England qualifying together for the European Championship in France, we bring you the beautiful ‘English Rose’, our reimagining of the emblem.

'No matter where I roam. I will return to my English rose. For no bonds can ever tempt me from she.'
