'It’s deep within us' - Catalonia-inspired strip goes on sale in Barca stores

Spain, Barcelona
November 14, 2019 at 05:23 GMT +00:00 · Published

A new FC Barcelona shirt was put on sale in the Catalan capital on Wednesday, with its motif being the red-and-yellow coloured 'senyera' which is synonymous with the region.

Five hundred of the shirts also featured a motto reading 'Ho Portem Dins', translating from Catalan to English as 'It’s deep within us.'

Four red stripes, which appear horizontally on the Catalan flag, slice down from the right-hand-shoulder of the yellow jersey.

"I think of the influence (the Jersey) has on the Catalan society and its history, and we will have to contribute more to the Catalan society," said a local fan.

The club’s hierarchy has openly backed independence and several key figures from Barca have aligned themselves with the separatist movement, including Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola and current centre-back Gerard Pique, both of whom have represented Spain and Catalonia at international level.
