The club says the new design is a "strong visual step forward", utilising the same typeface as the stadium signage at Ninian Park and the Cardiff City Stadium.

The smaller dragon at the bottom of the crest is described as "projecting our Welsh heritage... celebrating Asian linked culture, design and tradition influences".

Cardiff City 1 - 2 Charlton

Cardiff City suffered more home heartbreak as a late penalty saw them beaten 2-1 by Charlton. Federico Macheda had given the Bluebirds the lead shortly after half time.
