Colour ball: the Depanini stickers!

From this week of ‘all the world is -officially!- football shaped (and it’s ours to kick in space:-)). And for the last 6 months I’ve been training with tubes & pencils to capture all colours of the world…

Trying hard to compose a comprehensible (& complete!) Colour Encyclopedia and 1 tiny aspect of this whole Mission Impossible are of course the colours of national football teams. Here are some:

team-belgium

Starting with red, here’s Belgium’s single chance to eternal glory – apart from chocolates & waffles – The 1 & only Red Devils! But did you know South Korea has a team by exactly the same name?

team-orange

A small consolation prize for our Dutch friends who couldn’t make it to Russia. Those of you familiar with Dutch culture will probably recognize Miffy, Jip & Janneke, Mr De Uil & several 70s players…

Brazil is the only country that has participated at every final round of every world cup.

team-blu-france

Blue turns out to be the favourite colour of quite some teams: neighbouring France & Italy of course.

team-blu-italia

- unfortunately the beloved & stylish Italian team above is excused at the current tournament -

team-blu-argentina

The inevitable Argentinians with the ever present Rhino, Gino & Dino… (& the little hand of god)

team-blu-schotland

And I’m not sure if Scotland participates, but if they do, watch their secret weapon by the name of Lionel Nessie – reappearing every Summer – Just don’t come home too soon, will you?

team-green

Here are their neighbours from the┬áIrish Republic. The grass couldn’t be any greener.
