In the developing Italian club scene of the early 20th century there were many football clubs but little variation in shirt colour. A suggestion by a Palermo member that the Sicilian club should drop their red and blue colours in favour of pink and black stripes was an inspired one; the resolution was adopted in 1907 although there was a delay before the team first appeared in their new colours with the necessary pink flannel having to be imported from England. Palermo's unusual colour combination created one of the game's most distinct and most iconic shirts and is still an important part of the club's identity more than a century later.
