Ukraine produces major confusion with its flags before the opening of Euro 2024

Ukraine produce major flag mix-up on their kits ahead of Euro 2024 opener

Ukraine are set to kick off their Euro 2024 campaign against Romania.

Ukraine have reportedly made a huge mistake on their kits ahead of their Euro 2024 opener against Romania.

Euro 2024 kicked off last Friday with hosts Germany beating Scotland 5-1 at the Allianz Arena.

Since then, the tournament has produced a series of entertaining matches.

England secured a narrow 1-0 victory over Serbia on Sunday evening after fellow Group C teams Denmark and Slovenia shared a 1-1 draw.

Monday afternoon, it is Ukraine’s turn to face Romania for their first group stage match of the competition.

Ahead of the match, which will be played at the Allianz Arena in Munich, it was claimed that Ukraine had made a mistake with their kits.

According to Romanian journalist Emanuel Rosu, Ukraine had the Belgian flag on their kits instead of the Romanian flag.

Rosu wrote on social media: “Before today’s match at Euro 2024, the Ukrainian Football Federation put the flags of Belgium on the jerseys of its national team instead of those of Romania.

“Hopefully someone can buy some paint at the last minute to fix the problem.”

In the comments section, some fans pointed out that the camera could have made the colors appear darker than usual.

One person replied: “I think it’s the camera.” You can see how much darker the blue of the Ukrainian flag or logo is compared to what it should be, so the dark blue of Romania looks even darker.”

Another tweeted: “It’s not black but you’re right, the blue is too dark.”


A third fan added: “Maybe it’s the camera’s fault and it’s really blue.” It appears darker than it is on the original logo. The blue of Romania is therefore also affected and appears even darker.

Ukraine will face Belgium in their final Group E match on June 26, before that they will face Slovakia on June 21.

The Ukrainian team has a number of Premier League players including Oleksandr Zinchenko, Mykhailo Mudryk and Vitaliy Mykolenko.
