Wigan were another club to first adopt their majestic county borough coat of arms; an ornate design that incorporates the story of the city including the castle and tower gateway to the town, along with a king's head – a visual nod to King Edward III – alongside two royal lions and the accompaniment of a Mountain Ash – otherwise known as a Wiggin tree. A complex design to say the least and one the club did not stay true to for long.A circular crest became embroidered on club kits and stationary around the 1970s. Incorporating the clubs full title along with elements from their original identity. Although the club did return to their coat of arms detail for a brief period in the early 1980s, they returned to the much sleeker circular crest again in 2008. This time round a crisp re-design that included the clubs now famous blue and white stripes along with the addition of two graphic footballs – a design that's still holding the club strong today.
