As a tribute to the bicentennial of Colombia, Millonarios and Adidas presented a new away shirt for the team from Bogota.
On July 20, 1810, Colombia won independence. Independence from Spain was won in 1819, but by 1830 "Gran Colombia" had collapsed with the secession of Venezuela and Ecuador. What is now Colombia and Panama emerged as the Republic of New Granada.
The new nation experimented with federalism as the Granadine Confederation (1858), and then the United States of Colombia (1863), before the Republic of Colombia was finally declared in 1886.
The new away shirt features the colours of the national flag and will be sold as a limited edition.
