The story that we bring today is very interesting. Many are those who for many years we have come to see the SC Heerenveen, Team Eredivisie Dutch, shine 7 'hearts’ in his shirt. But nevertheless, far from what may seem, it turns out that what seemed to us a heart was not after all this time.


Actually on the team jersey which appear are 7 leaves of sea lilies or own red waterlilies in the region of Friesland, where it sits City Heerenveen. So, zamarra how much the club has become one of the quintessential gifts Valentine's Day in Holland, Hearts are not such.
