The crown is a St. Edward's crown (introduced in 1953), while the image at the
top of the page shows the old Tudor crown, based on an image from Album des
Pavillions Nationaux, 1923. Checking the Facebook page for the club, they appear
to have reverted to the Tudor crown. (https://www.facebook.com/rsays1)
