Ferencvárosi Torna Club (FTC, Fradi). "Ferencváros was
founded on the 3rd of May in 1899, its first Chairman was Ferenc
Springer. FTC's official logo, five green and four white stripes
symbolize the 9th district, and the three 'E's refers to the
motto of the club: Moral, Force, Understanding. Ferencváros, by
the fans called Fradi, is the only club in Hungary, who has
played all the matches in the first division. FTC is the most
successful team in Hungary, has won 27 championships and 18
times the Hungarian Cup. In the season 1931/32 Ferencváros won
all of its games, which is a fantastic record in Hungary.
Ferencváros also has celebrated big European successes: 1965 the
team has won the VVK (the series before UEFA Cup) and reached
1975 the final of the Cup Winners Cup. Ferencváros is the only
Hungarian club who could reach the group phase in the Champions
Yesterday I have seen the flag.
