The history of the Barcelona football club flag date back to 1899. But the firs crest was very different from today’s. The current crest dates from 1910, when it was chosen by competition, and since 1910 it has only changed aesthetically. The top left part contain the St. George’s Cross, representing the saint of Catalonia and which also exist in the coat of arms of the city of Barcelona, and the Catalan flag on the top right. The bottom half of the crest contain the colours of the Club and a football.
