It's your last chance to take part in our wide-ranging consultation process on the current Manchester City Football Club badge.
Last month, we began a four week consultation process to gauge the views of our Cityzens, which is due to close on Saturday 14th November so make sure you share your views now.
Cityzens are invited to participate in a formal questionnaire about the badge and its elements.
Feedback can be given at a dedicated physical consultation space in City Square that will be open at 9am-5pm on weekdays, 11:30am-4:30pm on Sundays and up to 30 minutes before kick-off on matchdays.
Non-Cityzens can also visit the consultation space and send in their thoughts via City Voice, the Club’s official online fan community, at mcfc.co.uk/cityvoice
We want your views to guide future decisions about the Manchester City Football Club badge. Take a look at the videos below.
1) History video: Manchester City has undergone many changes over the years but the badge has always remained central to the Club’s values.
2) The Original (1930s-1972): Aside from the City of Manchester coat of arms this badge had the longest life of any of the three. Its central elements are the shield, ship and rivers.
3) The Rose (1972-97): Worn on league shirts from 1972-6 and 1981-1997 (Coat of Arms in the intervening years) the three rivers are replaced by the Red Rose to reinforce the connection to Lancashire.
4) The Eagle (1997-present): Introduced just before the fall to the third tier it saw the abandonment of the round shape and the introduction of a flat topped shield, an Eagle and, purely for style, three stars.
