Millwall FC was founded in 1885 and first had the name Millwall Rovers. They got their colors, blue and white, because they were founded by Scottish workers who worked in the port of Isle of dogs, Millwall London. The team has retained its name even though they no longer play in Millwall. The team's nickname "The Lions" was adopted in 1979 and their club weapons are a picture of a lion. Its slogan confirms their supporters' cocky approach No one like us - we don´t care.
