Croatia was eliminated by Spain in the round of 16 of the European Championship on Monday. After 90 minutes, the score was 3:3, and then the Spaniard scored two goals in the first overtime and won the quarter-finals against the Swiss with a total score of 5:3.
There were several mistakes in this game, such as when Ante Rebic replaced his football boots in the midfield of the Spanish attack. In that attack, the Spanish team equalized 1:1 and Pablo Sarabia scored. Joshko Gvardiol also had a gaffe. His third goal in Spain was too far from the scorer of Ferran Torres because he went to drink in the middle of the game.
However, there is now a new gaffe. In other words, there is a Croatian flag with the wrong Croatian national emblem on the Croatian jerseys of all four European games. The first game is white. Of course, on the official state emblem, the first field is red.
> HNS on the coat of arms and the first white field: We apologize.We will hold printers accountable
The jersey of the football team must bear the emblem of the Football Association, in this case HNS. Few people have a national emblem, but in large competitions such as the European Championships, it is customary to have the national flag, or at least the name of the country and the city and date of the game, which makes these jerseys unique.
HNS economists put their coat of arms on their jerseys. When Croatia participated in the European Cup, no one reacted to it. The Croatian opponents Czechs and Scots have the correct Croatian national emblem on their jerseys, while the British and Spaniards don’t even have it.
The popular pattern of the Croatian chessboard has been in use since the 15th century, and for most of history it was not overly important whether the first area on the coat of arms was red or white (silver). These two variants appeared until the beginning of the 20th century, when Croatia entered the kingdoms of Serbia, Croatia, and Slovenia.
After the Croatian Parliament severed all ties with Austria and Hungary on October 29, 1918, the first chessboard in the red area was established as the official coat of arms of Croatia and was preserved during the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. The coat of arms with the first red zone is the official national symbol of Banovina, Croatia (an autonomous territorial unit within the Kingdom of Yugoslavia).
After Ante Pavelić and his Ustashas declared the Independent State of Croatia (NDH) in 1941, the appearance of the national emblem changed. On April 28, 1941, 18 days after the founding of the Criminal National Democratic League, the “Law on the National Emblem, State Flag, Pogravnik Flag, State Seal, and State and Self-Government Office Seals” came into force, which stipulated:
“The National Emblem of the Independent State of Croatia is a shield, with 25 white (silver) and red (blood) quadrangular areas, alternately arranged in five rows, so that the initial area is white (silver). It frames a white capital letter U, which is dark blue. Colored fields.”
The first field on the official national emblem was red, and the first white field national emblem was accepted as official by Ante Pavelić and his Ustashas in 1941. It was cancelled after the fascists and their collaborators were defeated in World War II. During the Republic of Yugoslavia, the Socialist Republic of Croatia used the national emblem with the first red square, which was retained as a symbol of the Republic of Croatia after independence.
