Collingwood and Essendon have unveiled their ANZAC Day guernseys for the round six clash, with both teams honouring the service and sacrifice of Australian men and women who served the armed forces.
The Pies’ design is off the back of their historic 1919 “Peace Premiership” through a contemporary version of their guernsey worn that year, according to the club.
The white base with two thick, black stripes just off centre sees out what the Pies’ will look like come the 25th of April.
The 1919 season was played through relief and celebration as the First World War was over and the competition could enjoy playing the sport they loved without a worry in the world.
1919 saw the Pies’ as premiers against rival Richmond and carried great significance because of the backdrop in which they played, the club wrote.
That day marked a famous victory for the club.
The Bombers will be seen wearing a thin red slash being made up of poppies to represent the fallen soldiers that played for Essendon, writes the club.
The jumper resembles what the club wore in season 1918, to commemorate 100 years since the end of WWI.
As per, both teams will don the ANZAC Appeal logo on the right chest and the words ‘Lest We Forget’ will feature on the back of the guernsey.
