Vitoria, the Eagle (Benfica Eagle)

Before every home match, an actual eagle named Vitória 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. When this tradition first started, the eagle would not land on the shield every time, so it was believed by fans that when the eagle landed on top of the crest the team would win their game.
