Monday November 23rd, 2015

On Sunday, French club Saint-Etienne of Ligue 1 honored victims of this month's Paris terrorist attacks by wearing a jersey featuring the peace symbol fused with the Eiffel Tower.

The symbol was created by French artist Jean Julien following the Nov. 13 attacks, during which 130 people were killed and hundreds more were injured.

Saint-Etienne unveiled the new jerseys before their match against Marseille. The kits are the club’s usual bright green, with the now iconic symbol featured in white on the front.

The team also honored the victims by changing the colors of the seats where the team and staff sit to the colors of the French flag.

Paris Saint-Germain players will also wear a special jersey for their next two matches against Malmo and Troyes as a tribute to the Paris attack victims, the club announced Monday.
