We are proud to unveil the Iraq national team’s new home and away jerseys.
Both shirts are inspired by the colours of Iraq’s national flag and ancient Mesopotamian symbols that have represented this culture for many thousands of years. Mesopotamia is a historical region situated within the Tigris–Euphrates river system and is the world’s oldest recorded civilization. Present day Iraq emerged from this area that is often also called the “cradle of civilisation”.
The green home jersey features a graphic pattern of the Babylon palm across the front, symbolising victory as well as the walls of the Ishtar Gate, once one of eight entrances to the inner city of ancient Babylon. The design is completed with a classic black V-neck and a black & white repeat-diamond taping around the cuff of the sleeve.
For the white away jersey the graphic of the Babylon palm tree has been enhanced with Assyrian rosettes. These small flower symbols were commonly used in art originating from the ancient kingdom of Assyria. This shirt also features a V-neck, this time in teal, as well as repeat-diamond taping in the same colour around the cuff of the sleeve.
The launch of the new kits comes at an exciting time for Iraq. They are currently sitting at the top of their group in second round qualifiers for the 2022 World Championships in Qatar.
All jerseys are signed off with “Iraq” in Kufic, a traditional Arabic script, on the back.
