Saints Logo

Many people are looking for "saints logo" on this site. Are they looking for the classic Fleur de Lis logo of the New Orleans Saints professional American football team? The Fleur de Lis is a symbol from the Court of Louis XIV. It is a french word that stands for "flower of the lily". The Fleur de Lis is also a symbol for New Orleans, which was adopted during the French occupation of Louisiana from 1682-1762. Traditionally, it has been used to represent French royalty, and in that sense, it is said to signify perfection, light and life.

Or perhaps they are looking for the Southampton Saints British football club's logo? Back in 2002, the Southampton Saints Football Club launched an anti-racism campaign using The Saint's logo by permission from the Estate of Leslie Charteris.

Or perhaps they really are looking for the famous Saint stickman logo that Simon Templar, alias The Saint, used as a calling card in many of the adventures written by Leslie Charteris. In this case, Simon Templar.co.uk has a brief illustrated history of some of the various styles, adventures and artists humour of the famous Saint logo collected from books, film and other publications. Visit their Stickman Gallery for a great show of The Saint's logo through the years.

you fail to mention any historical reasons why the Saints use this logo,or even why the name/emblem should tie the team to the city or its inhabitants.

Good point and one I must admit I didn't know the answer to. A quick Wikipedia search shows that Southampton FC originally started out as "St. Mary's Young Men's Association F.C" which was later shortened to "Southampton St Mary's" so my guess is the nickname came from there.

Recently received a Graham Bleathman hand drawn trading card of The Saint logo on a trading card. A gift from the wife she purchased from e-bay from GB. Framed and on my office wall next to the picture of my wife and I standing by the New Scotland Yard sign taken last year in London. What can I say.

Just had to mention this...I was at a Mets ballgame last night with the wife.{P.G. Wodehouse's beloved team}. Between innings among the contests and announcer patter they tend to play some music. Along came the 7th inning stretch and after take me out to the ballgame a tune some of us remember. Yes the saint theme from the 1997 movie. Some fans and ballplayers believe it brings the Mets luck in the later innings playing that song. Just thought I would stop by and mention it.
