“Celtic Fans Defy Club to Fly Palestine Flags in Champions League Match”
In a stirring display of solidarity, fans of Scotland’s Celtic Football Club defied their club’s directives and waved thousands of Palestine flags during a UEFA Champions League match against Atletico Madrid at Celtic Park in Glasgow.
Despite the club’s request to refrain from displaying symbols related to the Israel-Palestine conflict, fans prominently showcased their support for Palestine. The passionate display included choreographed tifos, large flags, and a sea of smaller flags throughout the stadium. The Green Brigade, a dedicated Celtic fan group, had urged fellow supporters to continue their unwavering support for Palestine.
This powerful act of solidarity underscores the capacity of fans to champion causes they believe in, even in the face of club directives, sending a resounding message of unity and empathy to those affected by the ongoing conflict.
