The sports equipment supplier changed the color of the St George's cross, which appears on the back of the collar, from the original red and white – which appears on the English flag – to a combination of blue, purple and red. This Friday the Member of Parliament criticized the shirt.

– When it comes to our national flags, we should not touch them. They are pride, identity, who we are, they are right – Sunak told British broadcaster Sky News.
