News Release: Hamilton, Bermuda – As Bermuda’s Gombey Warriors prepare for their Concacaf Gold Cup match against Haiti this week, the Government of Bermuda today shared its support for the Association of National Sports Governing Bodies (ANSGB) decision to establish Bermuda’s national sports uniform colours as blue, pink and white.
Last Thursday evening, the public got to see the new team uniforms when Bermuda’s National football team played Guyana.
According to the Department of Youth, Sport and Recreation, in recent months, the ANSGB consulted with its membership to select colours for competition uniforms. As a result, the ANSGB recommended that the uniforms include the colours of blue, pink and white.
In recent times, the national sports uniform colours have been various hues of red and blue. The new colours selected reflect the distinctness of Bermuda, referencing the island’s unique natural attributes such as our blue waters and pink sand.
Today the Minister of Labour, Community Affairs and Sports, Lovitta Foggo said: “Blue, pink and white have been determined as the national colours for team competition uniforms and the Government of Bermuda stands proudly behind the Association of National Sports Governing Bodies’ decision. We have such a great line up of sporting events on the horizon. Events where we can show off our talent and our new national sports uniform colours, and that’s something we should all be excited about.
“The public can expect to see the new uniforms at the Concacaf Gold Cup football matches this month; during the Carifta Games which will be hosted here in 2020; and worn by our Olympic Team which will be representing Bermuda at the 2020 Summer Olympics. They will also be worn by Bermudians representing the island at a select roster of international sporting events such as tennis and cycling.
“I’m encouraged about what lies ahead for us and we believe that donning our new national sports uniform colours of pink, blue and white will certainly assist with strengthening our national pride and national identity. Many countries are identified by their team colours – such as Brazil, Jamaica, Bahamas and Trinidad and Tobago to name a few. Bermuda is pleased to join the long list of countries to now be recognized by our iconic colours.”
