CRYSTAL Palace co-chairman Steve Parish unveiled the club's new badge at Tuesday night's end of season awards. Mr Parish said the views of Eagles supporters had been taken into account and claimed the new design would "bring the club's image into the 21st century". Mr Parish told the club's website: "When we put a number of badges to vote a year ago we received a real cross section of opinion and have taken these views on board. "I see this change as more evolution than revolution, as it was important to keep the heritage of the past. The towers, glass building and eagle have been included, but the badge brought up to date using the latest techniques and design styles. We have also added the year we were founded as this was requested by the fan base. "The new badge has been designed to be able to be used in different ways. The crest will be seen with a shield in a 'coat of arms format' around the stadium, without a shield on the club kit, on training wear and in the media, as well as a simplified version for some casual clothing and merchandise. "This new design will re-produce much better than the old line drawing, featuring a stronger more dynamic eagle that brings our club image into the 21st Century." The badge was designed by Palace fan Dan Mulcahy. Do you like the badge? Tell us your thoughts below.
