The club's iconic green and white colours actually come from the Casino supermarket group which is based in the city.

This was a great period for the club, not only winning multiple Ligue 1 titles, but also coming agonisingly close to adding a European Cup title to the club's honours list, losing by a single goal to Bayern Munich in the 1976 final at Hampden Park. Fans of the club often blame the defeat on Hampden Park's square goalposts, claiming that if they'd been round then two efforts that hit the woodwork would have actually gone in!
