If the colors of the flag are green, white and red, why is the national team jersey blue? It is the color "blue Savoy" or "blue Savoy", symbol of the Savoy family, the ruling dynasty in Italy from 1861 to 1946. In 1861 this shade of blue became the national color and in sports it was adopted as the color of the national team of football on January 6, 1911. For the debut in 1910 they opted instead for white, considered a neutral color, a color that can still be chosen for the uniform of national athletes. Since then, the Savoy blue has remained the national color, even with the advent of the Republic. Today we find it in the uniforms of athletes of all sports, not only in soccer, when they play in national teams.
