Evolution of the FCB crest

As you may see, the logo of FC Barcelona has largely evolved from 1899 to 1910 and has remained approximately the same afterwards. The club’s original crest was a quartered diamond-shaped crest topped by the Crown of Aragon and the bat of King James, and surrounded by two branches, one of a laurel tree and the other a palm. The new crest represents the St George Cross in the upper-left corner with the Catalan flag beside it, and the team colours at the bottom.
