Three Stripes is a brand adas consisting of three parallel lines, which usually feature along the side of adas clothing. Adas was known as the brand early in its history, with its owner Adolf Dassler describing it as "the three stripes company." The Three Stripes mark was created by the founder of Adass, Adolf Dassler, and was first used on shoes in 1949. In 1952, after the 1952 Summer Olympics, Adad signed three strip brands from the Finnish sports shoe brand Carho Sports, for two bottles of whiskey and the equivalent of 1,600 euros. This logo lasted until 1997, when the company introduced the slogan "Three Ribbons" (designed by the then creative director Peter Moore), which was initially used on the equipment range of products. In 1998, Adas sued the National Association of Collective Athletics for its rules limiting the size and number of commercial logos on team uniforms and clothing. Adas sought to withdraw the suit, and the two groups developed guidelines on the three designs that would be considered uses for the Adass brand. In late 2004, competitors from good sports manufacturers filed a complaint with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) over adas's allowing it to exceed the 20 cm2 limit allowed for the brand with the three stripes. Adass argued that the brand device was a design element, not a logo, and despite being a sponsor of the International Olympic Committee, leading to accusations that Adas received preferential treatment, stripes were banned.

Prior to UEFA 2008, UEFA updated several regulations for "sleeve-free zone" mandates on shirts worn under the a. The effect of this ADAS is by blocking the use of continuous lines down the sleeves.
