Borussia Dortmund came up with a unique way to launch their new kit – they used 80,645 flowers to create a massive replica.

The incredible project was implemented at Dortmund's Westfalenpark with the flowers covering 10,764 square feet.

The significance of the number of flowers used is it exactly matches the capacity of the team's stadium.

"PUMA planted the 80,645 flower pots, equalling the capacity of SIGNAL IDUNA PARK, in the design of the new shirt," the club's website explained.

"The flowers - marigolds as well as black, pink and grey petunias - had been specially cultivated in black and yellow pots for this campaign."

The display will only stay in the park for the next couple of days and then the flowers will be given away to fans as 'good luck charms' for the season.
