World Cup Flags

Here a list of the flags I've seen in Toronto supporting World Cup teams this week, in order of frequency:

  1. Portugal
  2. Italy
  3. Trinidad
  4. Brazil
  5. England
  6. Argentina
  7. Korea
  8. Germany
  9. Mexico
  10. Angola
  11. Ghana
  12. Ukraine
  13. France

13 down, 19 to go.

UPDATE 9:44: Add 2 more, Tunisia and Saudia Arabia (on the same vehicle)

UPDATE 10:24: Croatia just drove by my window. I've now counted 16, which is half the total.

1:30pm: Both Poland and Australia just drove by in a short time period. 18 down with 14 to go.

Thursday 8:40pm: Last night on my way home from work I saw Ecuador and the Czech Republic. Some of the remaining teams are going to be hard to find.

2:50pm: Spain just drove by. 11 to go.

4:17pm: Japan. I may or may not have seen Serbia's new flag yesterday.

Friday 4pm: Yes, saw Serbia's new flag again. Also saw a Persian flag this morning. 8 flags remain. Ivory Coast, Togo, Paraguay, Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, Costa Rica, United States. Some of those won't be easy, especially since 3 of those countries have been eliminated and 3 others are fairly likely to be.

4:26pm: Surprisingly, a Swiss-flagged van just drove by.

Monday 8:20am: Over the weekend I saw Sweden and the Netherlands. That leaves 5 and I doubt I will see any of them: Ivory Coast, Togo, Paraguay, Costa Rica, USA.
