Meaning and history

Liverpool Logo history

According to the official logo history provided by the team on its website, the earliest Liverpool logo was a replica of the coat of arms of its home city, Liverpool. Here, you could see Neptune, the Roman god of the sea, and Triton, who was the messenger of the sea in the Greek mythology. Between them, there were two cormorants, or Liver birds, a very popular motif in the heraldic system of the city of Liverpool, one of its most known symbols. Both Triton and Neptune were holding flags. There was a banner with the Latin text that can be translated as “God has granted us this ease.”

1892 – 1950

Liverpool Logo 2017

In April 2017, two updated FC Liverpool emblems were introduced. They were created for the 2017/2018 playing season, to mark the team’s anniversary. In fact, they didn’t change that much, as each of the meaningful elements stayed where it was.

The full shield looks exactly as its predecessor, apart from the dates “1892” and “2017,” which appeared from either side. The first date is the year when the club played its first game, while 2017 is the year of its 125th anniversary. Also, the text “125 years” appeared below the shield.

The second version of the crest, which is emblazoned on the kits, is much simpler. There’s only the bird (and it looks almost exactly as on the primary logo, except that it’s flat) and the lettering “L.F.C.” (Liverpool Football Club). Similar to the primary logo, the anniversary version of the crest also includes the dates “1892” and “2017,” as well as the lettering “125 years” beneath.
