ARMBAND FOR SD HUESCA VS CD LUGO
Next Monday, September 13th, SD Huesca will face CD Lugo in matchday 5 of LaLiga SmartBank at 9 p.m.
You can find here the tribute armband that will be worn by our captain during the match:
The armband’s design pays tribute to a great female painter born in Viveiro (Lugo), Maruja Mallo. She was one of the most important artists of the 20th century and an artist of reference for succeeding generations.
The wheat spikes are one of the most characteristic symbols in Maruja’s work. They have been included as an ornament on the Roman bridge of Lugo. Besides, her unmistakable signature can only be seen by her most loyal supporters – Can you see it?
In this case, the different colour schemes of the bridge are also inspired by the painter’s work.
The context in which the Roman bridge is framed is used not only to emphasise the fact that Lugo is the most ancient city in Galicia but also to highlight the importance of its river Minho basin.
Take this as a challenge… Can you find the nod to CD Lugo and their stadium?
We have wanted to include this nod to our rival, of course! The red roof structure of their stadium, Anxo Carro, can be seen in the centre of the armband’s design.
Actually, we could not pass up this unique opportunity, as this was the stadium where SD Huesca promoted to Primera División of LaLiga.
This is the detailed explanation of every graphic in the armband:
The painter born in Viveiro was one of the greatest of the 20th century. She was way ahead of her time, becoming an artist of reference for succeeding generations, even internationally. The wheat spikes are a recurrent feature in Maruja Mallo’s work, and the most important actor of one of the most extraordinary works of the author herself: Canto de las espigas (Song of the Spikes.)
Very much related to the Generation of ‘27, she created strong bonds with Ortega y Gasset, Rafael Alberti, Salvador Dalí, Lorca and Buñuel, among others. Apart from that, the texture of the bottom of the bridge reminds us of the unmistakable signature of the artist.
Roman bridge over river Minho
Founded in 25 BC by Paullus Fabius Maximus under the name of Lucus Augusti, it is a privilege for Lugo to be the most ancient city in Galicia. The Roman bridge or Old Bridge is one more treasure offered by the Roman settlement to the city of Lugo.
It was built in the 1st century and is a basic way to communicate with the south of Galicia, since it crosses the important river Minho basin.
Anxo Carro stadium
All the fans of SD Huesca hold good and unforgettable memories of the characteristic red roof structure of Anxo Carro stadium, as on May 21st 2018 this was the stadium where SD Huesca promoted to Primera División of LaLiga for the first time.
