Question Flags And Uniforms Of National Teams

hi everyone. I wonder why Japan and Italy national teams always wear blue uniforms despite not having any blue colour in their flags.
Italy's flag contains red,white and green meanwhile Japan's flag contains white and red.
Is there anyone who has an idea about this?
Also another question is; do you remember any famous football player who has played in 5 famous leagues (Spain, Germany, Italy, England, France)
I can find some who have played in 4 of these countries (Klinsmann, Anelka,Djorkaeff but couldn't still find the one who has played in 5 of them .

The Italian national team wear blue because it is the colour of Savoia, the ruling house of Italy from 1861 to 1946. Until the end of the second world war, the Italian flag always had the Savoy coat of arms in the centre, and it was only after the family were overthrown,and the Italian Republic established in 1946, that the plain tricolor was adopted as the national flag.

Japan play in blue and not red and white because "the symbolism of the colour equals youth and concentration"


Florin Raducioiu
Germany (Stuttgart)
Italy (AC Milan)
Spain (Espanyol)
England (West Ham)
France (Monaco)

Hope this helps with what ever quizz you are doing
