The Wealdstone FC club crest was first produced as a Lapel Badge in 1949, but it didn't appear on the team shirts until the late 1960s. It was designed specifically for the club and incorporates the following in its four quarters:
Reading clockwise from top left:
Royal blue and white, and more particularly royal blue & white quarters, have traditionally been the club colours since the 1920s. (A break with tradition in the 1970s and 80s was rectified in 1995 when the club returned to the quartered shirts.)
The three lions represent the country of England.
A football represents the sport played by the club.
The three swords and a crown are the emblem of the County of Middlesex which Wealdstone FC are proud to be part of.
The crest has been displayed in a number of versions. On some the wording 'WEALDSTONE FC FOUNDED 1900' is displayed around the outside, while on other occasions the date is shown as 1899. Currently no formation date is shown at all.
Recent research has indicated that there were a number of clubs in existence (prior to 1899) that lead to the formation of the present club, with the earliest record suggesting a possible first formation date of 1877.
Thanks to Roger Slater, Secretary at Wealdstone FC, for the above crest and information.
