England Hat

Never seen that one.

I really like it, but it's strange iconography for the England MNT - dragons aren't a team symbol.

It almost looks more appropriate for the City of London than England:

Maybe it's something that Adidas cooked up to avoid paying a fee to the FA?

yes, as i said im aware of this. but in the uk the dragon is very much a symbol of wales.

for some reason the poms use lions and roses for most stuff.

Still looks pretty bada$$, regardless for what they would use it for.

I've always liked just about everything about the English National Soccer team's uniforms....EXCEPT whats in them :P

What do you have against Lucozade?

Is it in you?

It's probably a fashion hat for the English NT football. Since adidas doesn't have the rights to use the "Three Lions badge," as that belongs to umbro (and subsequently Nike), they still make "fashion" items for their soccer teams. Especially because they have Beckham has a major endorser.

Picked up this hat at the England pavilion in Epcot's World Showcase. I guess it's for the national team, but I can't seem to find the logo anywhere on their site, so I figured I'd come to the experts. What's the story behind this one?

That logo would look killer on a faded t-shirt. Did you see any shirts with that where you got the hat?

Taht logo, regardless of what it's for, is absolutely awesome.

HA!

I was referring to the players. I'm a supporter of the Portuguese National Team, and not very fond of their soccer team.

True enough, with the exception that the dragon is symbolic of the City of London.

lived in london for best part of twenty years. never seen a dragon emblem on anything? lion and the unicorn on everythinng, lions on everything british (british lions rugby undion and league, three lions england football, rose for england rugby) first dragon ive seenon anything.

i guess st george slaying the dragon and all, would make the poms a bit anti dragon if anything?

Possibly it's for the England Aussie Rules team.

They've been using this as their logo:

(Perhaps Rutgers and/or UAB have contacted them and they felt the need to change)

Though I suppose it says "dragons" more than it says "dragonslayers"

But do you spend much time in the City itself? The crest is all over the place:

That's why I think this logo is so odd - the dragon is a very limited symbol in England, certainly doesn't represent the entire country.
