Sochi Olympics 2014: Germany insists rainbow uniforms aren't a protest

The Sochi Olympics are right around the corner, and countries are starting to unveil their uniforms that will be worn during the games and the opening ceremony. We’ve seen the infamous Norwegian curling uniforms and the USA uniforms that could win an ugly sweater contest, and now we have the rainbow colored German uniforms that will be worn.

Per the German website Spiegel.de, the Germans will be wearing colorful uniforms that embrace all the colors of the rainbow, but they’re not a protest of Russia’s strict anti-gay laws


The uniforms were revealed back in October, but they’re starting to make the rounds again thanks to the crazy uniforms we’ve seen in the last few days. They’re also going to only get more attention due to the fact that the anti-gay laws in Russia are starting to once again take center stage with the Sochi Games.

Germany is insisting that the uniforms are not a protest, but it’s going to be hard to not see people interpreting the rainbow uniforms that way when they debut at Sochi.
