What are the blue and green ones?

Anti-sectarianism wristbands

These bands aim to break down barriers between people of different religious beliefs - using a footie theme.

They are in the colours of teams Celtic and Rangers , whose fans traditionally split into Catholics for Celtic and Protestants for Rangers.

The message on the band is "say no to sectarianism". Sectarianism is clashes between people of different religions.

The bands have been sent out to 200 schools in west Scotland. The clubs have given 140,000 to a scheme to beat sectarianism.
