as you know my hobby is collecting football badges and as i guess you allready know many clubs share our crossed hammers due to coal mining etc so i thought i would have a look and find a bit more out on these club all badge's can be found on my website the webmaster is jp hammer i am very greatful for the time he puts in on it if you need any websites built etc he is your man top quality work

i used to write for the excellent west ham united fanzine on the terraces about this subject what ever happend to marc does anybody know i know he went on to pursew his intrest in music

SV Limburgia was founded on 9 May 1920 by the Limburgian coal mines, under the name Rhenania. In 1927 the club moved to Park Limburgia situated along the Venweg and was renamed Sportvereniging Staatsmijn Hendrik (Sportsclub Coalmine Hendrik). On 14 July 1936, during a general assembly, the name was changed to Limburgia. Their sports terrain consisted of four football fields, the biggest of which had a covered stand. The stadium could fit 14.000 people.
Between 1925 and 1939 Limburgia played in the second (regional) division. After the 1939–1940 they were promoted to the first (regional) division only to be relegated after one season. In the 1943–1944 season they promoted again to the first (regional) division and stayed there. Finally in 1945–1946 Limburgia won the first (regional) division and were allowed to compete for the Dutch championship. Unfortunately they finished sixth and thus last. The 1949–50 season proved to be the most successful. After winning the regional first division, they were again allowed to compete in for the national championship. The championship was to be decided between Limburgia and Blauw Wit. On the last match day Limburgia was leading by one point, and thus a win would secure their first ever national championship. Their final game was played on 24 June 1950 against Ajax in the Olympic Stadium in Amsterdam. Limburgia won this game with 6–0 and thus secured the Dutch national championship. The final results of the 1949–50 season:


After the introduction of professional football in the Netherlands, Limburgia's fame declined. In 1963 they relegated to the Tweede Divisie (3rd division). In 1971 they were relegated to the amateurs and finally in 1998 Limburgia merged with RKBSV to form BSV Limburgia. They still play in the amateur leagues.

The mood ran high both on the field and among the spectators ...

this resulted in a cooling off period of about ten minutes.

Funnily enough I saw a van parked in Sheffield yesterday with large sticker on the back of a crossed hammers crest and it was claret and blue as well (blue background claret hammers). Got the impression it was a youth team. Thought about taking a pic but didn't.

Nice read that.

I noticed the other day FC Shakhtar Donetsk also have crossed hammers.

The following is from Wiki but I'll try and find out more

Image
The first logo of the club was designed in 1936, it featured a blue hexagon, with a red 'S' in the middle, crossed over by a jackhammer. In 1946, when the club was renamed, the logo was changed to black and white, with addition of club's name. Later, in the middle of the 1960s, their logo depicted two crossed hammers, with "Shakhtar Donetsk" written in the circle. The crest was added to the kit and remained there since, except for several seasons in the beginning of the 1990s.

In 2008, during the presentation of the club's new stadium, Shakhtar's new logo was unveiled. For the first time in over 30 years, the crossed hammers, the traditional symbols of the club, were present on the crest.

My first reaction was this is our version of 'Fun with Flags' and had a chuckle in light of that, but it's a brilliant feature and very interesting, Having worked for so long researching the history of TIW which became to my surprise, indeed shock became very personal, anything of similar nature now has a fascination. There's a sort of brotherhood around this once very potent symbol of hard manual labour. Big congrats for your efforts, look forward to seeing more.

If i recall correctly, Shakhtar are another team that has historical links to coal-mining - in this case I think they were originally named after a local coal miner.

Off topic (and not very interesting) I noticed Louis Vuitton have put out o summer clothing with the crossed hammers.

At £450 a t-shirt, not sure there will be too many floating about.

toiday we are going to have a look at the very well known club from the ukraine shakhtar donetsk

Football Club Shakhtar Donetsk (Ukrainian: Футбольний клуб «Шахта́р» Донецьк [fudˈbɔlʲnɪj klub ʃɐxˈtɑr doˈnɛtsʲk], short nickname "miners") is a Ukrainian professional football club from the city of Donetsk. In 2014 the club moved to Lviv but has since early 2017 played in Kharkiv and has its headquarters in Kiev.[2]

Shakhtar has appeared in several European competitions and is often a participant in the UEFA Champions League. The club became the first club in independent Ukraine to win the UEFA Cup in 2009, the last year before the competition was revamped as the Europa League. FC Shakhtar Donetsk is one of two Ukrainian clubs, the other being Dynamo Kyiv, who have won a major UEFA competition. The club formerly played its home matches at the Donbass Arena, however, due to the conflict in Eastern Ukraine, the team relocated 600 miles to the west in Arena Lviv in the interim.[3] Following the winter break of the 2016–17 season the club moved to the Metalist Stadium in Kharkiv (150 miles to the north of Donetsk) early 2017.[2]

Shakhtar Donetsk is Ukraine's most popular football club,[4] and is particularly favoured in the eastern Donbas region.[4]

The club draws its history from the very start of the Soviet football league competitions and is one of the oldest clubs in Ukraine. The club was a member of the Soviet Voluntary Sports Society of Shakhtyor, having connections with other Soviet teams from Karaganda (Kazakhstan), Soligorsk (Belarus), among others. In the late Soviet period, Shakhtar was considered a tough mid-table club of the Soviet Top League and a cup competition specialist after winning the Soviet Cup two years in a row in 1961 and 1962.

The team has played under the following names: Stakhanovets (1936–46), Shakhtyor (Shakhtar) (1946–92), and FC Shakhtar (1992–present).

To suggest that life has been complicated for Shakhtar Donetsk in recent times would be something of an understatement. They moved into their newly built stadium, Donbass Arena, in 2009 and three years later basked in the praise as the ground was used to host matches in the 2012 European Championships, including quarter-final and semi-final matches. Sadly war broke out in the Donbass region in 2014 and Shakhtar moved their footballing operations to Lviv Arena, more than six hundred miles away in the city of Lviv. They played their games there until 2016 and at that point they moved to Metalist Stadium in Kharkiv.

Kharkiv is slightly closer to the Donbass region, but we’re still talking a distance of around one hundred and fifty miles, so it’s not exactly home. The stadium was previously the home of of the Ukrainian club Metalist Kharkiv, but they went out of business at the end of 2016 and folded. At the start of 2017 a new club named Metalist 1925 was formed and began playing games there alongside Shakhtar Donetsk, but given the club played its first season in the Ukrainian Football Amateur League and moved to the Ukrainian Second League, we won’t be covering the new side for the moment. All club information on this page, therefore, will be solely about Shakhtar Donetsk.
