This is just a random observation, but is displaying the old flag of the Confederate States of America, a new trend with continental ultras? I've seen it at two fairly big clubs supporter's ends. Real Madrid and O. Marseille. The Madrid Ultras featured it prominitley in one of their banners. Right in the middle. I don't have a picture of it, but I do have one of the Supporters end of the Velodrome. Look at the very top in the center of the ribbon banner going across the entire stand: See it? Do they think it just looks cool? Does it go along with Ultras' (sometimes) racist tendencies? That might be the reason for Madrid, but OM has a very diverse fan base with a lot of immigrants supporting the team. Is it an anti-American government statement? Do they even know what it stood for?
