Crest v badge

Just found this on the bcfc forum. It might explain a few things
Just found out it is actually illegal for any football club,or any sports club and even schools,to use a coat of arms of a city,and there is an organisation called "The College of Arms" which can prosecute any one using the coat of arms even if it has permission to do so.Two years ago Airdrieonions were told to change there badge or face prosecution.There is a company called "MR B and Friends" which I believe designed the Bristol Sport logo,who flagged this up when Airdrieonions had to change to a new badge,warning several clubs that they may also have to change theirs. Fulham changed their badge from the coat of arms of Hammersmith and Fulham to it's current badge in 2001 because of problems with trademarking.So perhaps if we are to change our badge, this could be the reason rather than the city council.
