- Morris tour of Normandy in 2009 and 2012

About Our Colours & Logo
We are frequently asked why a Morris team from Ipswich dances in the colours of Norwich, Ipswich’s traditional rival football team. Oops! Lagabag’s founders picked the colours to be bright, colourful and unlike any other team strip used locally. None of the locals in the side at that time were football fans so the reason that no local teams were using yellow and green strips totally passed us by. We soon found out the reason when we started performing! However, it is bright, colourful and locally distinctive so we are sticking with it.
The sunflower logo on our badge does not have any particularly historic significance; it was simply a jolly round thing which went with the green, yellow and brown colour scheme. The bit in the middle is a Morris bellpad bell.
