England's association with a lion as a national emblem dates back to 1154 when Henry II became the first king to adopt a lion as his badge â€” imported from the House of Normandy, after the Norman Conquest. His single-lion emblem was modified by Richard I, his successor, who added a second and then third lion by the end of his reign in 1199. However it was not until 1872, nine years after The FA was established, that the Crest featured in an England game, adorning the players' shirts in the world's first international match, between England and Scotland in Glasgow.
It seemed natural enough to base the FA logo on this stirring royal shield. Since then, the design has been changed in 1949 - when the crown that was on top of the lions was removed to differentiate the badge from that of the English cricket team.
The new design of the three lions emblem was revealed in 2009, one year before the South Africa World Cup.
