What’s the meaning of soccer jersey
The football jersey is not only the symbol of a team, but also the soul of a team. A football team’s heyday jersey often symbolizes its peak period.
Mainly introduce the national team football jerseys. The national team jerseys are not just simple “team uniforms”. They often have special meanings, either because of national culture or historical events, and each has its own style.
Football shirts of many countries have borrowed the colors of national flags. For example, the Argentina home football jersey imitates its national flag, with white and sky blue as the main colors. During the reign of Rosas from 1833-1853, the sky blue of the Argentine flag was changed to dark blue, meaning darkness before dawn. This is also the reason why the Argentine team’s away team uniform uses dark blue, this hue is to commemorate this period of history.
However, the color of the team uniform and the color of the national flag are not necessarily related, and the design of the football jersey varies from country to country. For example, the Dutch football shirt is orange, which is the family symbol of the Dutch royal family. Coincidentally, the Italian blue football jersey pays tribute to the Savoia family, the founders of the Kingdom of Italy. The blue in the Italian flag is also called Savoia blue. Since 1911, the Italian national team began to use blue as the main color to represent the country.
Australia: Gold and green are the colors of Acacia, the national flower of Australia. The combination of gold and green is also widely used by many national teams such as the Australian football team, softball team, cricket team, and the Australian Olympic delegation.
Germany: It is also because of historical reasons. The German team has always used white as the main color of the home football jersey, but this color, like Dutch orange and Italian blue, does not exist in the existing national flag colors. When football emerged in Europe at the end of the 19th century, Germany was under the rule of the German Empire. The national flag of the Empire was composed of black, white, and red horizontal stripes. The design of the flag of the German Empire comes from the fusion of the Prussian black and white flag and the red and white flag of the North German Federation.
