17. The Land of Rising Above Adversity
As you may already know, Japan’s flag symbolizes, “The Land of the Rising Sun.” For the 2020 Tokyo games, Italy decided to capitalize on that concept with their sports attire. Besides donning matching black sweatshirts, sweatpants, and sneakers, they boasted a sun symbol that was emblazoned on their clothing.
The one difference? This sun was red, green, and white – the Italian colors. We dig it. The style is simple, comfortable, and effective. We’d also go so far as to say it’s empowering. Even amid trials and tribulations, we can rise like that of the sun. Viva Italia!
