Founded in Lisbon in 1904, it is one of the "Três Grandes" (Big Three), football clubs in Portugal, with Porto and Sporting Clube de Portugal being the other two, Benfica's biggest rivals.
The emblem is composed of an eagle, a shield in the club colours of red and white, and the acronym SLB for "Sport Lisboa e Benfica" over a football, all superimposed over a bicycle wheel, which was taken from the Grupo Sport Benfica emblem. The club motto is "E Pluribus Unum," Latin for "Out of many, one".
Before every home match, an actual eagle flies around the Estádio da Luz and lands on top of Benfica's club shield, creating a real life version of the club's emblem.
