St Pauli have become Germany's Kult club, without major success on the pitch they have fashioned a unique culture and large following internationally. This started in the 1980s when an alternative fan scene was created from left-leaning politics and the party atmosphere at St Pauli matches.
The team's supporters adopted the skull and crossbones as their unofficial emblem. They were the first club to officially ban nationalist activities and right wing displays in their stadium. This was at a time that football hooliganism threatened inspired by fascism was endangering the game across Europe.
