Probably been asked before, if so apologies in advance but I've not seen it ... Why do we have an elephant as part of our badge? I understand the three spires, the ball and the phoenixes, all make perfect sense, but no reasoning for the elephant. Was it originally a horse for Lady Godiva that somehow evolved or was misinterpreted? Is it supposed be the Elephant and castle (as the three spires are often referred or drawn as a castle), I have no idea. The swimming baths also referred to as the elephant but presumably our emblem pre-dated that construction. Thanks!
