Introduction: Birmingham City Football Club
The Blues

The Birmingham City Football Club (BCFC) is a professional football club based in the city of Birmingham. Begun in 1875 as the Small Heath Alliance FC, they changed their name to Small Heath FC in 1888, then to Birmingham FC in 1905, with a final name change to Birmingham City FC in 1943. They are members of the Football League Championship, which is the second tier of English league football, where they have played since 2011. Known as Bluenoses, or Blues by their fans, their home stadium is St Andrew's Ground where they have played since 1906.

Birmingham City FC
Logos, Crests, Badges, and Patches

Birmingham City FC does not have one particular flag; however, the team logo is widely displayed on the usual variety of souvenir items. It consists of a globe over a football, with a blue ribbon entwined around the two spheres, the whole being on a white background. On the ribbon are the words 'BIRMINGHAM CITY/FOOTBALL CLUB' and the date of its founding. The basic colors of the logo are blue and white, the globe and the football being outlined in that color with a white background, and the ribbon being a medium blue with the text in white block letters. There seems to be a wide variation in the shades of blue used on souvenirs etc, and there are even one or two items with the colors reversed.

There have been quite a few BCFC logo/crests used both officially and unofficially over the years since the club renamed themselves the Birmingham City Football Club in 1905.
Here are a few.

BCFC Zulu Warriors
Football Hooligan Group

The Zulu Warriors are a football hooligan group, called a "firm," supporting the Birmingham City Football Club. They first appeared in the late 1980s and the name came from a chant of "Zulu, Zulu" which Manchester City Football Club fans aimed at Birmingham in 1982, due to their multicultural following. The Birmingham fans embraced the name and the Zulus, or Zulu Warriors were born. The Zulu Warriors have many members from different ethnic backgrounds. Most other hooligan firms are mostly white and contain followers of far-right organisations such as the National Front, but the Zulus seem to welcome all races. There have been violent clashes between the Zulus and other Hooligan firms such as Stoke City, Aston Villa, Wolverhampton Wanderers, West Bromwich Albion, Cardiff City and West Ham United. The Zulus identify themselves with flags like those below.

Based on this photo.

A BCFC Zulu Warrior flag perhaps protesting professional football's desire to make profits, disregarding fan and team loyalties? Perhaps also having something to do with the formation of the Premier League (EPL) and the involvement of the Barclays Bank and big advertising money?
