The Scottish lion and the word Prepared have been part of the Aston Villa crest since the clubs foundation in 1874 and modifications have been few.

Historically, Aston Villa is one of Englands most important football clubs. The team from Birmingham was, in fact, one of the 12 first participants in the English League, though it took until 1894 before Aston Villa won their first League title.

The club chairman William McGregor played an important role both for the club and for English football in general. During his time in charge, Villa won six league titles and took the FA Cup home four times the most brilliant period in the clubs history.

McGregor also founded the countrys top division, in 1888, and carried through reform on a national level, which resulted in the professionalisation of the game. Thanks to McGregror, English players were now able to earn money from their sport.

McGregor had been enticed to Aston Villa in the first place by a strong connection to Birminghams Scottish community. McGregor was himself Scottish and felt a kinship with Villa, so in 1877 he chose to work for them.

The Scottish identity assumed its greatest importance when he decided the lion from Scotlands royal crest should be the emblem of Aston Villa. Thus for over a hundred years the Scottish national crest has symbolised one of Englands most successful clubs.

After McGregors death in 1911, Aston Villa never quite reached the same heights again, even if the club did develop into one of Englands strongest brands. The victory in the European Cup in 1982 was their greatest achievement a title that was, incidentally, won with four Scottish players in the squad.

1973-1992. The rampant lion from Scotlands national crest was Aston Villas first emblem and has never been replaced. Prior to this badge the lion could be seen without the surrounding shield as well.

19922000. The original lion was red, but during the 20th century there were white, claret and light-blue variations until this one was introduced in 1992. Since then, Villas lion has been yellow.

20002007. With the arrival of the new millennium the lion was modernised and the abbreviation F.C. was dropped. The claret and light-blue stripes symbolise the colours of the shirt, which havent changed since 1887.

20072016. On August 14th, 2006 the American Randy Lerner bought Aston Villa for 62.6 million. To symbolise the beginning of a new era, this emblem was introduced the following year. The white star reflects the victory against Bayern Munich in the 1982 European Cup. The motto Prepared has been used since 1878.

2016present. In the spring of 2016 Aston Villa completed an historically poor season. The team came bottom of the Premier League and were relegated. In the midst of all this, the club introduced a new emblem costing around 100,000 a huge sum for minor alterations like the lions acquisition of a more heraldic look and claws. On top of this the motto Prepared was removed to make the lion bigger.
