I’m a Curtis alum and it’s great to see our unis on here as I’m scrolling through! I’ll try to post some pictures later on of what we wore back in the 2000’s. The flag in the logo on the helmet was a recent addition a year or two ago.

It took only two replies. Impressive, y'all really need to loosen up

 

Or we could think of new, alternative ways to communicate “patriotism” that don’t involve disrespecting and/or appropriating our nation’s symbol in the name of commerce.

Not the best of pictures, but it was over 125 years ago...

Or you could just share pics of your favorite patriotic uniforms and leave that other nonsense at the door

First the NHL thread, now this. Andrewharrington just can't avoid being unfairly maligned, no matter where he posts. Might catch Colorwerx's record at this rate!

I could. I just don’t like settling.

 

Since you asked, though, I think they’re best when they celebrate specific people or stories relevant to the school and/or region. The service academies are typically great at this. LSU had a good one this year. The recent crops from Arizona St., Texas A&M, Mississippi St., and Kansas have been nice as well. Basically, if it has Stars and stripes on it, it’s probably trite, contrived, or both.

Maybe is not a regular team and I'm not even sure how we should categorize it, but 2012 Olympics Team GB wore this:

Olympic teams across the board wore that design for Team GB. But it works especially well for soccer.

Rangers wore this shirt a couple of years back. Was right around the time of the Scottish indipendence referendum spacer.png

that’s probably the closest we’ve ever got to seeing the Union Jack on a club shirt. A couple of teams in Spain used to do Spanish flag trimmed kits for European competition but that seems the most a flags been seen on a sporting uniform outside the US

Is suppose there’s also these FC Barca uniforms, but depending on where you stand, they might not be considered patriotic. If you’re non-Catalan Spanish, these might regionalistic at best or separatist at worst.

Any team from the autonomous regions, Basque Country and Catalunya, routinely place their flags somewhere on the jerseys.

The Canadian and Albertan flags on the shoulders I'm assuming.

As others have pointed out, the flags on the shoulder.  The primary colours are also black and red, Canada's national colours.
