Fans Make Peace with green and yellow in the Cup
The green and yellow of the Brazilian flag has been associated in recent years with the wardrobe of supporters of the Bolsonaro government and has reflected the polarizing climate in the country. The World Cup, however, could change that game. In some cases, the two colors appear next to the color red. This is the case of media analyst Felipe Sa, 32, who found a solution to feel comfortable in a reggae shirt. After all, he explains, the item unites the three most important colors for him: the green and yellow of Brazil and the red that defines his political positioning. Wearing all three, he explains, symbolizes "the project of Brazil that legitimately won at the polls". However, not everyone is concerned about not being associated with Bolsonarism. In some situations, the World Cup seems to at least have given people a break from politics In popular stores, such as the ones on 25 de Marco, in Sao Paulo (in downtown Sao Paulo), green and yellow continue to rule. Stalls display T-shirts of the Brazilian team with prices starting at R$40. There, most of the red items are Christmas decorations that share the space with the World Cup accessories.
