Everton have revealed the new club crest that will adorn the jersey next season, after a consultation process involving over 20,000 fans.
When the Merseyside club changed their crest ahead of the new Premier League season, they were met with a backlash from supporters. Among other items, the club motto ‘Nil Satis Nisi Optimum’ – ‘nothing but the best is good enough’ – was removed. Such was the reaction that the Goodison Park outfit took the decision to choose a new emblem in consultation with the fans. With the choices narrowed to three, the winning design has now been chosen.
According to the club website, the new crest reflects Everton’s heritage and status as an authentic, respected football club.
“It brings together the key icons of the club’s tradition – the Tower, Nil Satis Nisi Optimum and the Shield, rendered in the strongly preferred club colours of royal blue and white.”
“The Tower design has been modernised in line with the strong feedback from the consultation, the Shield shape streamlined and the name Everton included in a strong font with an element of tradition.”
“Overall this is a simpler, neater presentation to meet modern day challenges, whilst retaining the strong heritage so important to the club and its supporters.”
