Badge, why the underscore?

Recommended Posts

TypoonJambo

Not that important but I've often wondered why 1874 is underscored? It's not as if iy can be read upside down. Any ideas?

I actually just assumed it was to do with scanning, for ease of reading. Four letters and four numbers split in to segments by the saltire. To make it easy to read, so people know where to start, the fullstop goes between the H and the M, so people don't read it left to right as FHMC, and the underline under the date to point out it's not part of the acronym?

Think it’s a bogey because we seem to underscore season to season just now.

Bummer! I was hoping to start a thread, however mundane, in which it would be difficult to be negative or slate the manager.

Good luck with that... A thread about Capri-sun could be turned in to a Levein-oot thread on here just now.

Don’t think it was on the older badge?

Because there was such a debate over when the club was formed (1873 v 1874) that when the 1874'ers won they made it clear by underlining it

Probably a Hobo thing, they need a ? after 1875 to allow for the missing years!

Ours is genuine and accurate!

They just appear that way when they have better quality drinks around them. In a shite selection of refreshments they don't stand out.

An awful development in recent times. We could win the Champions League, Premier and Scottish Cup treble in the space of a week and I still wouldn't want some poxy star above the Heart of Midlothian. 

 

Cant decide which is worse: Rangers and their 5 stars or Aberdeen's 2nd star for the European Super Cup. 

 

Still surprised Hibs didn't plonk one above their badge for winning a tournament that had been won regularly by others in a 114 years period.

If we win the league I'd want a big massive **** star on everyone's heed.

Surely they're entitled to an honourary one for teaching the Brazilians how to play. The CBF have 5, the least they could do is put one in the post to Leef.

The ridiculous five stars on the Hun badge by a mile for me. One for every ten league titles. What and absolute beamer that is. :rofl:

 

I think Celtic have won it 50 times now annaw... wonder why they haven't stuck five wee silly stars on their badge? :unsure:

Aye. Those three defeats Hibs suffered on that tour were a pivotal moment for Brazil.

Have to agree. 5 to represent 54 is the winner (or loser) in the ridiculous star league table.

I remember when they got that standard template strip a few years ago with the stripe thing across it and tried to pass it off to the fans as a representation of the Easter road slope🤣

Might be wrong but I think Huddersfield have 3 stars above whatever their badge is. Representing their 1924, '25 and '26 titles. 

 

Must win the most historical bung up a star award.

I was thinking that, too. A single 1972 related star, whilst in itself a bit feeble, would look better than 5 daft stars strewn over the badge. Particularly now that Celtic, too, have won 50.

Looks very dated IMO. The current one is superior.

Jambo, Goodbye

I think the _ is to give it symmetry. Otherwise the 1874 would look too high up within it's wee space. Too much empty space before the 87 so it would look off centre I think.

That thing they tried to pass off as a Famous Five tribute in 2014/15 was a belter. A cheap bottle green T-shirt to represent the Hibs shirt in the 1920's when Reilly, Smith...were born.

Or the top representing the famous slope. Hand picked for Hibs and not at all the previous seasons Spurs top.
