Club Crest

The first Beragh Red Knights club was established in 1921 and then in 1972 the Golden Jubilee of that formation was celebrated.
There was a sense of excitement at the time as Beragh blazed a trail. Their new all Red strip, complete with togs, socks and even a kitbag marked them out as something special. The Red Knights were now the new, young and vibrant face of the GAA in Tyrone.
A new crest was introduced to reflect the heritage and history associated with the Red Branch Knights.
Its design incorporating the hand grasping the sword reflected the valor, courage and heroism of the Red Branch Knights, and aimed to instil and inspire Beragh teams with similar qualities. In 1972, the year that the new kit and strip were introduced, Beragh displayed all those characteristics with a new, free-flowing style of play, by winning promotion to Senior.
