On the English rugby jersy, is their crest and 3 lions, what do the lions represent?
Simple search, then copy and paste:
It is thought that the three lions may have come to England from Normandy but it was Richard the Lionheart (1189 – 1199) who, especially during the Crusades, used the three golden lions on their scarlet background as a powerful symbol of the English Throne.
The Crest appeared on his second Great Seal and thereafter three lions passant guardant have been known as "England".
As such, the Crest has appeared on the Royal Arms of every succeeding monarch and, today, is even employed to represent England in the sporting world.
