Arsenal Football Club is an English professional football club based in Holloway, London, who currently play in the Premier League. One of the most successful clubs in English football,was founded in 1886 in Woolwich and in 1893 became the first club from the south of England to join the Football League.Arsenal has a long-standing rivalry with neighbours Tottenham Hotspur, with whom it contests the North London derby.Unveiled in 1888, Royal Arsenal's first crest featured three cannon viewed from above, pointing northwards, similar to the coat of arms of the Metropolitan Borough of Woolwich. These can sometimes be mistaken for chimneys, but the presence of a carved lion's head and a cascabel on each are clear indicators that they are cannon.[26] This was dropped after the move to Highbury in 1913, only to be reinstated in 1922, when the club adopted a crest featuring a single cannon, pointing eastwards, with the club's nickname, The Gunners, inscribed alongside it; this crest only lasted until 1925, when the cannon was reversed to point westward and its barrel slimmed down.[26] In 1949, the club unveiled a modernised crest featuring the same style of cannon below the club's name, set in blackletter, and above the coat of arms of the Metropolitan Borough of Islington and a scroll inscribed with the club's newly-adopted Latin motto, Victoria Concordia Crescit "victory comes from harmony", coined by the club's programme editor Harry Homer. For the first time, the crest was rendered in colour, which varied slightly over the crest's lifespan, finally becoming red, gold and green.Therefore, in 2002 they introduced a new crest featuring more modern curved lines and a simplified style, which was copyrightable.The cannon once again faces east and the club's name is written in a sans-serif typeface above the cannon. Green was replaced by dark blue.
