Japanese side V-Varen Nagasaki create special kits commemorating 70-years after the atomic bomb [Pictures]

Last weekend Japanese side V-Varen Nagasaki unveiled a brand new kit commemorating 70-years after the atomic bomb was dropped in World War II.

At least 70,000 Japanese people died in the attack, when the Americans used the A-bomb on August 9, 1945.

V-Varen Nagasaki marked the anniversary by releasing a “Pray for Peace” kit.

The new kit has several distinctive features, including folded paper cranes – which are a symbol for peace in Japan – flying up the side of the shirt.

In addition, the front of the shirt features the pray statue in Nagasaki made by sculptor Seibo Kitamura. The statue symbolises God’s love and Buddha’s mercy.

Unfortunately the new kit failed to help V-Varen Nagasaki secured maximum points last weekend in the J-League 2, as they were held to a 0-0 draw at home by Consadole Sapporo.

See pictures of the special kit below.
