Liverpool 125th Anniversary Crest + Logo History

Not only did Liverpool launch its new home kit earlier today, to much praise from supporters, one must say, the Northern English club also released an updated version of its club crest commemorating its 125th anniversary.

Liverpool 2017-18 Logo - 125th Anniversary

Below you can see both versions of the Liverpool logo to be used in 17-18.



Following is a full rundown of all Liverpool logos used since 1892, via liverpoolfc.com.

1892-53




Founded in 1892, Liverpool FC started out by using a slightly modified version of the city's coat of arms.



Besides the first logo, a secondary one was established in the 1940s and used up until the early 1980s. Some say it inspired Manchester United's badge, which was created in the 1960s.

1950-55




The inaugural crest was stripped down to only a red badge and the Liverbird in the 1950s, the first time the club crest appeared on the jerseys.

1955-68




Shortly after, the letters 'LFC' were added to the crest.

1968-87




The oval shape around the Liverbird was removed in the 60s, while the club started to print it in yellow rather than white starting in the mid-1970s.

1987-92




Another change occurred in the later 1980s, when not only the shape of the badge was altered, but also it said 'Liverpool Football Club' for the very first time.

1992-93




Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the club, Liverpool introduced a new badge for the 92-93 season. The Shankley Gates and name of the club's anthem "You'll never walk alone" were also added.

1993-99




A slightly updated version of the centenary crest was launched the year after. This was also when Liverpool added two eternal flames to remember the victims of the Hillsborough disaster.

1999-2012




Based on the previous take, Liverpool introduced its most recent logo in 1999.

2012-2017




Starting with the very first Liverpool kit made by Warrior, the Liverbird returned to the chest of the club jerseys, although the contemporary crest is still used by the club everywhere else.
