Club BadgeEdit

The original club badge is a shield split into three sections; two upper 'quarters' and a lower 'half'. In the top left quarter is a bog flower – symbolic of the flowers in the marsh between Banwen and Coelbren. The top right quarter shows a tree and the lower half houses a white knight astride a horse.[3]
