The label features the band’s mascot — a demon-faced monster named Eddie — wearing an English soldier’s traditional red coat and waving a Union Jack.
In a video posted on the band’s web site, Iron Maiden front man Bruce Dickinson said they wanted to “put something suitably patriotic” on the label, so the 1983 song The Trooper, about a British warrior, “leapt out and grabbed us straight away.”
