Meaning and history

Swansea City Logo history

During the first 60 years of its history, the Swansea City Association Football Club used a badge heavily based on the crest of its home city. Since the 1970s, the core component of the badge was a swan.

1912 — 1922

Swansea City Logo 1912The team started its history in 1912 under the name of the Swansea Town. The first emblem it used was just the coat of arms of its home city, Swansea, Wales. There was a castle with two towers symbolizing the castle of Henry de Beaumont (1099), around which the town grew up, a rampant lion, and a dragon.

1922 — 1970
