During General Franco's dictatorship, Barca represented the opposition. Under his regime, the Catalan language and its symbols were banned. In 1939, the club was forced to change their name to the Spanish Club de Fútbol Barcelona, and the Catalan flag had to be removed from the Barca crest. Despite this, the stadium remained one of the only places where Catalan could still be spoken; and the Catalan flag was displayed freely within the stadium walls. Now that's to cheer for.
