It was inscribed with the words ‘Al bolso lo hace grande su gente’ (‘The fans make Bolso (the club’s nickname) a great team’), and ‘La Banda del Parque. La que nunca abandona’ (‘The group from the park, that will never abandon the club’).

Additionally, it bore the names of 5,400 fans who helped create the flag, along with a tribute to the club’s founding fathers.
