San Lorenzo displayed its flag upside down and the memes exploded
Boca Juniors became champion in International Summer Tournament 2022 after winning 1-0 at Saint Lawrence of Peter Troglio. The xeneize feat took place in the stadium ONE from Students from La Plata, where Luis Vazquez he scored the goal that gave his club the cup and gave Sebastián Battaglia the opportunity to celebrate his first title of the year.
Among the pearls of the meeting of the Argentine clubs, some details of the stands stood out, such as the presence of the blue and gold reinforcement Darío Benedetto, a large number of fans who attended to support their teams and, above all, something that had to do with the cyclone flag.
It is that during the first part of the final, in which Boca The first goal of the night was already won, the ravens unfurled a giant flag with their shield, but both the xeneizes present on the field and those who commented on the game on social networks made fun of one detail: it was upside down.
Then, some memes about the error began to circulate on Twitter – which later some said was on purpose as a symbol of protest – that fans of San Lorenzo they had committed. In this line, the account One meter ahead chicaned the crows: “They can not turn a flag, imagine the game.”
Another, for example, in the same sense, laughed with a play on words, saying: “San Lorenzo wants to turn around”. However, some versions pointed out that it was an intentional action by the fans, who showed the shield upside down as a way of protesting against the club’s leadership. But not everyone believed such a justification and called it an “excuse.”
The truth is that, in the second half, the Cyclone placed the flag on the correct side, so that the “Casla” of its shield could be read well. This movement supports the argument that the stretching of the azulgrana fabric backwards was not inadvertently, but with a deliberate will.
But nevertheless, It is not the first time that it has happened that posters are placed upside down. San Lorenzo did it once already in May 2021, in the New Gasometer, to complain about the situation he was experiencing, after being defeated by Racing and from the output of Diego Davove. At that time, the Boedo team was without a coach and in a critical situation.
