FC Barcelona’s 2015-16 Home and Away kits have been unveiled and they both feature bold redesigns by Nike. The new La Liga champions will be defending their league title with their traditional Blaugrana home kits now sporting those colors in horizontal stripes and it features the Senyera flag is embedded into the collar in a golden yellow trim with four thin red stripes around the outside of the shirt’s streamlined and modern V-neck. Horizontal stripes have previously been worn by FCB basketball, rugby and athletics teams, but this is the first time in the club’s long and rich history that the football team will don horizontal stripes.
The Away kits are inspired by the iconic Senyera flag, which itself is so central to the culture of the city and the club. The new Away shirt is predominately golden yellow, a hue long associated with Catalan unity. On the back, four vertical red stripes on a golden yellow background run from the shoulders to the hem. This design is inspired in the way that FC Barcelona fans wear the Senyera around their necks as a cape in celebration and support, expressing their love for both Catalonia and their club.
