Three gold lions on a red background was the heraldic symbol of Richard the Lionhearted, King of England from 1189-1199. Richard is seen as the great hero of chivalry and English kingship, and ever since, the lion generally has been the symbol of England, the Royal Family has used the three lions on their coat of arms, and in the modern world England has used the three lions as its symbol in several sports.
