Times are changing for Watford FC. For years the fans have called the team 'The Hornets', but the official badge has included a red hart, a type of deer. Design a new official badge for Watford FC that brings to life the club’s culture and nickname, ‘The Hornets' in a modern way. Your badge can be any shape, but it should be a distinctive shape. Watford FC like that its current badge isn't a traditional circle or shield."

The nickname of the Hornets originates from 1959, when the club changed from playing in blue & white to yellow & black. It was chosen in a supporters’ vote and has stuck with the team ever since. In the 1960s & 70s, the club logo featured a Hornet, however this was changed to a red hart in the late 70s to reflect the county symbol of Hertfordshire, though the nickname remained.

The aim of this competition is to create a new crest that focuses on the clubs nickname 'The Hornets'. This will be the main badge for the club and be used on the football kit and for general branding. This badge should include one of the following: "Watford Football Club", “Watford FC” or “Watford” (in a modern font).
