DESIGN DETAILS

The club’s original blue and gold colors were chosen by pure chance. During a match, the two clubs’ kits were so similar they made a bet: winner keeps their colors, loser changes them. Boca lost and had to adopt the colors of the next ship’s flag that sailed into port. That flag was Swedish, giving the club its blue and gold colors, as well as its bold stripe.


Since 1970 stars were added to the traditional crest, one per title won—domestic championships above the letters, international ones below. At this rate, they’re going to need a bigger crest.
