New Middlesbrough Crest

The new Middlesbrough crest has come under serious criticism, but there are some good points to it as well and compared to the old Boro crest (below) it’s definitely an improvement.

Middlesbrough Crest (Old)

The Good – better colors, more space for the lion, and the shield is fine as well.


The Bad – the ribbon at the bottom will (and already has) get the new Middlesbrough crest unfavourable comparisons with public school logos.

Obviously Middlesbrough have put a lot of thought into this and it is definitely an improvement over the old Boro crest, but they can probably do better.
