For whom the flag flies

12th September 2010

“Arsenal’s Premier League home game against Birmingham City on Saturday 16 October will focus on the Club’s Arsenal for Everyone initiative, an ongoing scheme which embraces the diversity and equality of the Club and its fan base.

Arsenal has invited a number of representatives of its diverse fan base to welcome players on to the pitch at the game and line up with an impressive display of 17 flags representing the countries of the Arsenal squad. 

The Club launched the Arsenal for everyone initiative three years ago(2006) in a bid to move from an anti-racism message to a celebration of the diversity of the Arsenal family”-arsenal.com

“Arsenal as a club prides itself on being inclusive with respect to all nationalities, cultural and ethnic groups, we are asking that only Arsenal flags, without any national emblems, are displayed within the stadium." –Arsenal Club statement
