The Aston Villa crest is very distinguished by the lion drawing in the center, which is The Rampant Lion of Scotland. The lion has no obvious relation to the club’s past, instead it represents the club’s values in form of bravery and strength. The small white star, on the left of the lion, is to honor the club’s European Cup title. The “AVFC”, initials for Aston Villa Football Club. The lower part of the logo has also the word “Prepared” which has been a traditional motto. The motto has been removed in a new version with the initials and lion image slightly increased enlarged. In the last few years, several different badges have been in use, for example one of them was in round shape.
