Slovakia’s men’s hockey team is taking national pride to another level at the Sochi Olympics.

Its jerseys, released Tuesday, include not only the national colors, but also the words of the nation’s anthem.

Lyrics from “Nad Tatrou sa blýska” (“Lightning over the Tatras”) adorn the sweaters in small white lettering on top of a navy blue background. The Tatras are a mountain range.

Here’s a video of two men modeling the jerseys and reading (singing?) the lyrics.

Here’s a close-up look at the Nike jerseys, from Slovakia Hockey’s press release:
