It follows last year's momentous achievement of being the first club to play 100 years in top flight football.
The Blues'oldest known fan joined manager David Moyes and his squad to launch the anniversary at Goodison Park.
Bill Roberts, of Ferguson Avenue, Greasby, is 92 and first watched his heroes aged eight.
He said it was wonderful to meet David Moyes and the players: ``I hope they bring back the good days.
``This place is like a second home to me. I've spent so much time and seen so many wonderful players here. I was honoured to see people like Bill `Dixie' Dean. He scored goals like I'venever seen in my life.''
The 125thanniversary logo incorporates local landmark Prince Rupert's Tower, which was adopted as the club's insignia when church side St Domingo took the Everton name.
As part of the celebration Everton will mark a series of anniversaries, such as their first ever game, first FA Cup win and first derby match.
