“We are the largest and most representative social institution of Andalusia,” Haro told reporters, as cited by El Desmarque.
“We are proud to wear the colors of our regional flag, green and white, and we represent it whilst doing so.
“We are Real Betis Balompie Sevilla, yes, you heard right, Sevilla. This is how our administrative hallmark reads reads since the birth of our club.
“That is why we are presenting this shirt with this spectacular view of the city, a shirt with the city’s landmarks shown.
“We return to Europe with the name of Seville in our flag. We are the Betis of Seville and thus we like to be called in England Betis from Seville, in France Betis dans Sevilla, in Italy Betis de Siviglia.
“It has always been like that and we are proud of it, Betis are the most Sevillian thing in Seville.”
