As Lisbon Lions fans all over the world celebrate the 50th anniversary of Jock Stein’s famous side’s 2-1 triumph over Inter Milan, we look back to the iconic branding we created for the Lions' 25th anniversary, when the team were first officially lauded for their historic victory.

Our classic badge, with its leaping lion, is now synonymous with the Lions.

The logo featured on memorabilia and merchandise from brochures and ties and badges to whisky decanters. The design stands the test of time and it’s great to see Bertie and the Lions sport their official blazers and ties at every opportunity.

Celebrating our 35th anniversary has given us a rare chance to look back on our own achievements and playing a part in the Lions’ landmark anniversary in 1992 has been a true highlight. We remain very proud to have created such an iconic logo for such a legendary occasion.

From all of us at 999, we’d like to congratulate Glasgow Celtic FC on the 50th anniversary of the Lisbon Lions’ incredible achievement. Here’s to another epic week of celebrations!
