The Italian Football Association has issued a clarification on the official logo for the upcoming season, which is set to start on February 14.
The club’s logo was unveiled in August 2018.
“The crescent is a traditional symbol of Italy, as it was the flag of the Republic of Italy from the 14th century,” the official statement said.
“Its meaning was changed to represent the Italian people.”
The crescent, also known as a sash, is a three-pointed star and the most iconic of the Italian flags.
It was used in both the national anthem and a state flag.
