Greg Chappell's baggy green
The 'baggy green' is a green flannel cricket cap embroidered with an unofficial Australian coat of arms. Australian Test cricketers have worn the cap since the 1900s, but in the last few decades it has grown in significance to become a symbol of patriotism, tradition and team solidarity.
