The UMBC Club Lacrosse team decided to take their talents to sunny California by reaching out to Pro Athletics to manufacture their uniforms for the upcoming season. Lacrosse Unlimited also chipped in by printing the helmet decals. Both, the decals and uniforms have the Maryland state flag emblazoned in UMBC’s colors, Gold and Black. To insure quality, a member of the team designed everything.
In terms of the design itself, it’s primarily the Maryland flag used as a pattern. I recolored the flags to make them UMBC colors. I initially whipped up the shorts design when I entered into your contest for the 40 free shorts. I made it to the finals and ended up losing, but the designs were very well received by the team/community so we decided to get them made anyway. — UMBC Men’s Club Lacrosse Vice President Bobby Kwan
But, the team didn’t stop there. They coordinated their first design with a contrast design for reversible shorts and tops.
As for the influence, there was no outside influence on the idea of the design itself, I personally wanted the shorts to be unique and one-of-a-kind.
The Yellow flag definitely stands out and we love the continued trend with Maryland teams this year.
