Armenian Tricolor on Azeri Volleyball Team Uniform Causes Uproar

BAKU (PanArmenian.net)—The Azeyol Champions League women’s volleyball team has caused a major stir among Azeri fans, according to 1news.az.

According to the website, the Azeri team’s new uniform features the Armenian Tricolor.

“We wonder whose ‘brilliant’ idea it was? If the uniform was offered by a foreign company, why did Azeryol approve it? Why would they use this very same succession of colors rather than the colors of Azerbaijani flag?” the website questions.

The national flag of Armenia, the Armenian Tricolor, consists of three horizontal bands of equal width, red on the top, blue in the middle, and orange (also described as “apricot”) on the bottom.

The official definition of the colors, as stated in the Constitution of the Republic of Armenia is as follows: “Red emblematizes the Armenian Highlands, the Armenian people’s continued struggle for survival, maintenance of the Christian faith, and Armenia’s independence and freedom. Blue emblematizes the will of the people of Armenia to live beneath peaceful skies. And Orange emblematizes the creative talent and hard-working nature of the people of Armenia.”

    Fanatic and ignorant people. The dress of the Azeri women team has four layers: two in red, one in blue and one in apricot color, and the Armenian national flag has 3 layers.
    I am not surprised that these idiots will hate the sky because is blue, the wine because is red and they will swear not to eat apricot because is the third color of the Armenian flag. They are becoming like bulls who attack a red garment.
    The 19th-20th centuries are known to be the era of hating people for their skin. The 21st century, the Azeri initiated the hatred of people because of the color of their flag! The best adjective such people deserve is A K H M A K H !
