Arsenal’s new pink 2022-23 third kit celebrates the local community

This season Arsenal will play in pink for the first time with the launch of their brand new third kit for the 2022-23 season.

While pink has previously been chosen for both goalie jerseys and trimmings, the Gunners have never used the rosy hue as the main color for a field jersey before.

The sparkling shade of pink is embedded in a subtle ‘ermine’ pattern, echoing the repeating motif used on the Arsenal club crest shield, circa 1949-2002. Ermine is a heraldic image often used in coats of arms, meant to represent the fur of an ermine, from which it takes its name.

Along with the west-pointing cannon and the Latin motto “Victoria Concordia Crescit” (Victory Grows From Harmony) the ermine pattern was originally revealed as part of the new Gunners badge when it debuted in the first game day program of the 1949/50 season. It was then dropped in 2002 when the club unveiled its new, streamlined crest – which can still be found on its kits to this day.

Besides the pretty pink kit, the 2022-23 third kit is completed with contrasting navy trim, as well as navy shorts and matching pink socks.

As with this season’s home and away kits, Arsenal continue to celebrate their local community by introducing the third kit. The pink and navy ensemble serves as a visual salute to the passionate support base they have in North West London and the more creative members of the borough in particular.

From musicians to DJs and producers to skaters and even aspiring young urban gardeners, Arsenal celebrates the passions of its supporters.

The 2022-23 home shirt was launched as part of a project where £5 from every club shop sale was donated directly to the Arsenal Foundation (which supports a variety of local community-focused initiatives).

Meanwhile, the matching away kit, launched during the Gunners’ US tour in July, featured a film starring fan Aston Mack, who founded the Orlando Freedom Fighters organization after bursting into the limelight with a replica Arsenal jersey for the first time Black Lives Matter protest in Orlando in the summer of 2020.
