Have a look at Real Madrid or Barcelona's 2018-19 Champions League shirts. There is a striking similarity between them.

No, it's not about the color. Neither it's about the kit manufacturer nor the shirt sponsor. It has to do something with the left sleeve badge. The badge carries the logo of the Champions League Trophy along with a number inscribed in it. So what is it? It's the 'Uefa Badge of Honour'; commonly known as 'Multiple Winners Badge'.

The badge was introduced by UEFA before the start the of 2000-01 Champions League season. It was meant to recognize and honor the most successful clubs in Europe. The number within the badge indicates the total number of European titles won by the club.

How to earn the badge?

UEFA awards the badge to those clubs who meet either of the two criteria:

1.) The club must have won the European Cups/Champions Leagues at least five times.

2.) The club must have won the European Cups/Champions Leagues on three consecutive occasions.

As of today, only seven clubs have achieved this feat. They are Sevilla FC, FC Barcelona, Liverpool FC, AFC Ajax, FC Bayern Munich, AC Milan, and Real Madrid CF.

Let us look at the seven clubs who have won the UEFA Badge of Honour.
