Flag of Stade Français, blue and pink variants - Images by Ivan Sarajčić, 31 July 2007
The flag used by the supporters of this rugby club reproduces the
players' jersey. It is a blue field with three parallel red lightnings
with a white border. The three lightnings are stuck horizontally. Most
flags used by supporters include STADE FRANCAIS in white over the
lightnings, but the largest flags seen in the stadium lack this writing.
The name of the club was changed in 2003 from "Stade Français-CASG" to "Stade Français Paris". The blue flags with the lightnings and the writing Stade Français were progressively replaced by blue flags with the three lightnings placed in a blue oval bordered in white; the writing was dropped.
Stade Français plays in the Jean Bouin stadium, in Paris, close to the Parc des Princes, and the club colours probably come from the traditional colours of Paris.
