The Manchester City Crest Apparel Collection is based on the club’s crest which was updated ahead of the 2016/17 season. It was a huge departure from the club’s previous crest but embraced by the fans, who had been consulted in the new design. The new crest was more modern with a simple circular design. Manchester City and the club’s founding year of 1894 are included on the outer ring while the center includes a shield with a ship, the red rose of Lancashire, and a symbolic representation of the city’s 3 rivers seen in the striping at the bottom of the shield. This Manchester City crest women's t-shirt in royal blue is officially licensed by the club.
