Just saw it in another thread.

It's the English flag for the World Cup.

GreenCurlyTeeth Mon 16-Jun-14 13:44:54

It means we support England in the world cup smile

i thought it was the england flag(george cross), some sort of thing they had set up, as i saw another flag next to someone's name (french maybe)

Oh. How do you do that?

Look at the site stuff stickie at the top of active conversations for the explanation smile

Holy Effing Shit!

That is disgusting. If you go to your account you can 'select your favourite team'


(Can you tell I don't do football? And that I have learned a little bit of the MN hyperbole smile)

Go Into my mumsnet and its in your profile settings.

Here you go. Lots of choices!

ICanSeeTheSun Mon 16-Jun-14 13:49:16

I want a little flag but don't really like football. Would it be wrong if I put the flag of my favourite food origin.

TillyTellTale Mon 16-Jun-14 13:49:48



I don't have that! Are you in with MNTech?!

Nomama Would you feel happier if it was cricket? grin

I share your pain. Bored shitless with bloody football. 22 rich men kicking a bit of plastic round a field into an overgrown fishing-net with ideas above its station . . . I'd rather watch the test card.

Don't get me started on any sport. I love sport, I used to be very sporty, have a physiology degree and taught all about sport, for years and years and years.

But ye gods, give me the strength to survive the bloody football. I could happily watch it if it weren't for the bloody commentators talking tosh and the prima donnas on the pitch forgetting what their feet are for, being all clever clever - just kick it, yes you can, You can kick it, yes you can!

Nope. Can't be doing with it. Fortunately DH hates it much more than I do, so there is no chance it will be on in our house!

The filthy ruffians! <clutches pearls>

UsedtobeFeckless Mon 16-Jun-14 14:00:33

Whatever - it's only a bit of fun! Personally I don't watch it either but DP cares so mine is a vicarious little red cross ...

Nomama Mon 16-Jun-14 14:03:26

(Wish I got paid that much for a bit of fun)

RiverTam Mon 16-Jun-14 14:06:15

I like the way if you hover over a flag it tells you the country. Today I have learnt that what I though was the Israeli flag (are they even in the World Cup?) was in fact the flag of Honduras. Who knew, eh?

UsedtobeFeckless Mon 16-Jun-14 14:08:29

Nomama ... I meant the flags.

Nomama Mon 16-Jun-14 14:12:29

I know! I'm just determined to be grumpy smile

HayDayQueen Mon 16-Jun-14 14:13:10

Well they don't have a snow flakes chance in hell of winning but I'll support them anyway!!

I think you must have bumped your head ICanSeeTheSun - there's stars floating about you......
