Best Answer

The three lions symbol has been a traditional emblem of England since the time of Richard the Lionheart who used it as his emblem. Today it appears on the Royal Coat of Arms. When the England cricket team was formed the three lion design was an obvious choice as a symbol which represented the country. It also appears on the England football (soccer) team shirt.

What's Sir Donald Bradman significance to Australian history as an individual?

Donald George Bradman, born on 27 August 1908 in Cootamundra, New South Wales, is often regarded as the greatest batsman, not only of Australian cricket, but of all time. His batting average of 99.94 from his 52 Tests was nearly double the average of any other player before or since. His contribution to Australian cricket has been significant, and his talent as an individual arguable brought Australia to the centre stage of world cricket. Bradman was drafted in grade cricket in Sydney at the age of 18. Within a year he was representing New South Wales and within three he had made his Test debut. In the English summer of 1930 he scored 974 runs over the course of the five Ashes tests, the highest individual total in any test series. Even at almost forty years of age - most players today are retired by their mid-thirties - Bradman returned to play cricket after World War II. On 12 June 1948, he scored 138 in the First Test Cricket at Trent Bridge. In his farewell 1948 tour of England the team he led, dubbed "The Invincibles", went undefeated throughout the tour, a feat unmatched to date. Bradman was awarded a knighthood in 1949 and a Companion of the Order of Australia, the country's highest civil honour, in 1979. In 1996, he was inducted into the Australian Cricket Hall of Fame as one of the ten innaugural members. After his retirement, he remained heavily involved in cricket administration, serving as a selector for the national team for nearly 30 years, continuing to positively influence the direction of Australian cricket.
