DESIGN ELEMENTS, HISTORY AND EVOLUTION OF ARSENAL LOGO

The earliest known Arsenal logo or crest was adopted in 1888. It typified the coat of arms of the Borough of Woolwich containing three cannons; reminiscent of the military influence of the region. The cannon emblem, however, changed numerous times throughout the years.
The current version of the Arsenal crest was introduced in 2002. The logo retained the old eastward pointing cannon while exhibiting a more modern and simplistic look. It is also notable in replacing the excessively decorative Gothic fonts with a less ornate and bold typeface.
