30 September 2005

On 29 September, during the second (revange) UEFA Cup qualification match between Wisla Krakow and Vitoria Guimaraes racist fans of the Polish team hung a banner on a fence with the symbol of Celtic cross (a racist symbol of white power) with the picture of the hooligan on it and the sentence: ‘Fanatics of the White Star’ (White Star is a nickname of Wisla Krakow). The same flag was hanging on Krakow's Wisła stadium during Champions League qualification game between Wisła and Panathinaikos - 9 August. At the match against Victoria the racist fans of Wisla displayed also a banner with a ‘Confederation’ symbol used by the racist south during the XIX-century civil war in the United States.Nowadays the symbol is used, among other groups, by the Ku Klux Klan. The flag appeared a few times before, usually during home league matches of Wisla Krakow.
