IF THE Tshwane Sports Council has its way, the Blue Bulls may soon be the white, black, yellow and green Bulls - and without the traditional Barberton daisy as their sporting symbol.
The council is considering proposals to change the region's sporting symbol and colours, Beeld said yesterday. Five proposals - all incorporating the colours white, black, yellow and green - have already been tabled for all representative teams in Pretoria. Traditionally, Pretoria-based teams wear light blue with the daisy as their emblem.
Herman Bester of the Gauteng North Angling Association referred to minutes of the Tshwane Sports Council that provide five examples of a new logo and of the Tshwane colours of white, black, yellow and green (almost identical to the ANC's black, yellow and green).
Kallie Kriel of Afriforum has said that they are willing to take the matter to court.
Council chairperson Bismarck Mosuoe said the sports bodies had been asked for proposals and a decision would be taken in April. Beeld asked whether the Bulls' colours would be in the firing line, and he said that was "the implication".
Bulls president Boet Fick said: "It won't happen." - Sapa
