    Iraq shirt

    I just noticed today that Iraq's national team shirt in the game was slightly inappropriate.

    The shirt was a complete replication of the flag, which the flag contains the green Arabic inscription saying "Allahu Akbar" which means "God is Great". I'm not Muslim though, but I know a lot about world flags and the story behind each of the flags.

    Islamic inscriptions, such as "takbir" which is on this flag, as well as the "shahada" which is on Saudi Arabia's flag, are usually considered holy and sacred, and they are not usually made into handflags, or other merchandises such as t-shirts or whatsoever.

    I'm only just to point things out and doesn't want to offend anyone by this.

    For most of the nations that haven't a strong football history, they are replaying the national flag on the shirt. I choose Coatia hoping that I could get the classic red/white chess shirt, but they put a blue one

    But you knew what Croatia shirt you were getting before you picked it
    So why would you hope to get something different ?

    Maybe there is a second shirt...
    Anyway I'm a fan of '98 Croatia, so I don't regret my choose at all.

    Switzerland denmark norway sweden and some others have the logo of a cross which is a christian symbol ...

    Turkey algeria tunisia iran pakistan etc ... have the islamic symbol of crescent ...

    Maybe the star of david is considered holy for jews ,,, i have no idea ...

    and perhaps there are other flags in the world that may contain religious creed or political symbol that may not represent some minorties... but in terms of politics and law minorities always must show respect to the national flag ....


    top eleven developers don't have time to redesign a special jersey for each of 198 country ... so they just made the jerseys of each country as a copy paste of the national flag ... nothing wrong with that in my opnion

    I think the takbir and shahada are more sacred than the crescent, as the flag with those inscriptions will never flies at half-mast for example.
