To celebrate the club's 120th anniversary, Barcelona presented its fourth kit of the season with the tagline 'Ho portem dins' (‘It’s deep within us’) that underlines the bond between the club and Catalonia. In such a crucial historical moment for the Catalans - who are currently protesting on the French border - the launch of this jersey by Barcelona is a strong signal to the institutions and a clear political message, in addition to the words of Pep Guardiola in October (who asked "the Spanish government a political and democratic solution" and international civil society to "put pressure on governments to take action in this conflict").This motto was chosen to evoke the essence and the identitiy of Barça and one of the factors involved in being 'Més que un Club' (‘More than a Club’). The main feature of the jersey is the link with the Senyera, the name of the Catalonia's flag, made recognizable by the red stripes on the yellow background of the kit.

The new design - Kappa called out Nike because it recalled a Kappa's concept - features the four red stripes appear diagonally across a yellow background. The rest of the kit follows the same colour scheme: the shorts are in the same yellow hue as the shirt to create a sense of continuity from top to bottom. The socks are also yellow, with four red hoops and the Nike logo and the word Barça in blue. To launch the fourth kit, Barcelona shared a video on social media starring, among others, Sergi Roberto - Catalan player product of the club’s own youth system - who said that “It is an honour to wear the flag, the four stripes, on the shirt”.

The new Barcelona kit will go on sale on Wednesday 13 November, at first in certain Barça Stores at the Camp Nou and then, from November 20, the new kit will also be available on the offical website. According to the press release, the shirt will be used "for certain league fixtures this season", without mentioning an offical debut date.
