    In my eyes HIBS green is always a darker close to bottle green not a light green which to me is more a Celtic strip colour Think the dark green of the 2016 cup winning strip or the Alex Cropley strip 1974-75 in the HIBS images through the years thread

    Just a personal preference

    If you go onto that website you put up the Celtic retro scarf is exactly the same shade of green as the”HIBS retro scarf”

    I had the Hibernian Supporters scarf that a poster put up on this thread from the early sixties that is the shade of green

    To give an example I went to Darkheid and the vendors were trying to pass off their light green bar scarfs as HIBS and Celtic bar scarfs

    As I said just personal preference from supporting HIBS for sixty years
    Definitely a Hibs green and a Celtic green in many people’s eyes Billy, albeit we’ve had a few different shades through the years. Like you I identify with a slighter darker shade of green with being our own.

    Spot on !

    We were first to wear the hoops but dark green hoops and then we went for all bottle green tops (reintroduced 2014) then in 1938 a slightly lighter green with white sleeves but to me always a darker green

    The current strip has every shade of green possible

    It is not only personal choice it is Hibernian tradition I know of one poster who thinks the all dark green top of the 1972/73 European Campaign is a thing of beauty

    Barry photy btw
