FILE- In this Oct. 7, 2012 file photo, Barcelona supporters show colors of a giant Catalan flag at the Camp Nou stadium during a Spanish La Liga soccer match between FC Barcelona and Real Madrid, in Barcelona, Spain. More than ever, FC Barcelona, known affectionately as Barca, lived up to its motto of being "more than a club" for this wealthy northeastern region where Spain's economic crisis is fueling separatist sentiment. Barca has been seen as a bastion of Catalan identity dating back to the three decades of dictatorship when Catalans could not openly speak, teach or publish in their native Catalan language. Barcelona writer Manuel Vazquez Montalban famously called the football team "Catalonia's unarmed symbolic army." (AP Photo/Andres Kudacki, File)
