The UAE Vine jersey, haven’t seen it yet and it’s not bad, it’s just average, and the best UAE has made. The Aussies were likely in their ear about it though.

Why is that, actually? In the average gift shop in London you can buy a whole Union Jack-themed wardrobe, but their national champions have to wear something that no casual fan would recognize as the British jersey.
Because the two bands of red and blue is traditional. As you couldn't/wouldn't stitch together dozens of small pieces of coloured fabric to make a union jack jersey 50-100 years ago a simpler design suitable for manufacture has to be found. The British Olympic Teams kit was regularly the same design around the time National Cyclists Union and the British League of Racing Cyclists amalgamated into BCF so iirc that's where the design comes from.
