It was in the 1946-1947 season. On the eighth matchday of the league competition in the Silver category, Levante and Club Ferrol were paired up on Galician soil. The match was played on Sunday 10 November 1946. The Blue and Reds crossed the immensity of the Iberian Peninsula to take the field at the Inferniño stadium. The name of the stadium became a metaphor for the complexity of what it meant to win. It was the first time that the team coached by Villagrá had crossed paths with the Ferrolian team in an official confrontation. The pennant, with a predominance of the green colour that characterises the club from the north of the province of Coruña, immortalised the preliminaries of the match in the regularity championship in the Second Division.

Agustín Dolz, as captain of the Levante squad, was in charge of collecting the flag just minutes before the start of the match and reciprocating in the same terms. “Before the match, the captains of both teams changed captains because it was Levante’s first visit,” reports El Mundo Deportivo.

The emblem, offered as a gift by the local team, provides traces of the historical period. The lower part of the emblem shows the campaign that serves as a frame of reference. The name Club Ferrol evokes the change of name undergone by the institution to follow the legal regulations prohibiting the use of foreign words in force since 1941. Racing Ferrol FC, legalised in July 1920, became Club Ferrol after the Civil War.

It is still a tradition in football to honour the foreign club with this badge on its official debut. Levante returned that year to the world of the Second Division after several seasons in the Third Division. Club Ferrol was a classic in that category during the forties and fifties. In July 1939, they faced Sevilla in the Final of the Copa del Generalísimo.

The clash between the Valencian and Galician representatives was settled in the final minutes. The duel began with an early goal from Tino that Escrivá countered in the dying moments of the first chapter. Barón and again Tino put the game beyond the seventy-fifth minute. The win was vital for a Ferrol side stuck at the bottom of the table after one win and one draw in their previous seven games. However, Levante made amends in the return at Vallejo’s home ground (8-0) in one of the biggest thrashings in the Segunda División ecosystem.
