The cycling jersey has been employed by the Tour since its origins - as an exhibition of allegiance, a badge of honour, and a billboard for commerce.
The first Tours were for individuals (touriste-routier ) and members of sponsored teams; National teams first appearing in 1930, and continuing until 1962, when Trade teams took over. Excluding 1967-68, that has been the case until the present day.
