In response, the FA released a statement recognizing the significance of the original flag while defending the decision to modify the colors on the new kit. According to the statement, the design elements of the kit pay homage to the 1966 World Cup winners, with the colored trim on the cuffs and collar inspired by the attire of that era.

The statement further emphasizes the pride in the red and white St George’s cross, reassuring fans that it will continue to be prominently displayed, as always, at Wembley Stadium during matches.

Nike, the kit manufacturer, echoed this sentiment, describing the England 2024 home kit as a blend of tradition and modernity, with the cuff trim and collar design drawing inspiration from the 1966 heroes while incorporating a contemporary twist.
