The Pride of the National Flag

This World Cup year more than any other, the eleven lionhearted men that Sven Goran Eriksson chooses to represent us on the field in Germany will stand a better chance of winning the competition than any of those that have stood before them. So why not give them our full support, wave the England flag with pride and cheer on our boys in achieving glory which most of us will be lucky to see once in our lifetime.

A recent UK-wide sample implies that the best part will support England – a major 83% of the Welsh and 76% of the Northern Irish intend to back Sven-Goran Eriksson's men. If your team qualifies the World Cup occurs once every four years, so when it does eventually come round then it is the highlight of the year for a majority of football fans and patriotic supporters.

At the moment there is a lot of speculation surrounding the issue of flying the flag around the country. Cab drivers are being told they must remove stickers pledging support for their World Cup team from their cars but have vowed to stand up to the request. If you look around the houses and roads where you live you will undoubtedly see the strength of support and togetherness the World Cup brings to our neighborhoods.

However there is positive news for taxi drivers in Cheltenham for example after the council overturned their original decision to ban flags that caused “public safety issues”. Public outcry at the decision brought about the u-turn by the town council who now state that flags may be displayed as long as they do not involve any form of branding and are placed in safe place so as not to compromise the safety of the passengers.

Many drivers have displayed flags in their vehicles in spite of the ban in a unified showing of patriotism and support of Sven’s men.
