World Cup: Pennants

As is traditional for any international game, the countries at the world cup have been swapping Pennants before the matches. All very nice, but really isn’t it just an empty gesture, that no one really thinks about?

I think everybody should follow the example of Iran, who gave Mexico what looks like a Persian rug, framed with the flags of the counties in. Other countries should give gifts pre match that represent there country; I’ve no idea what we would give.
