The Women’s Football World Cup is gathering pace and we’re celebrating with a series of posts bringing you fun facts about the flags of the teams in each group.
Today, we’re looking at the flags of the countries in group D: China, Denmark, England and Haiti.
The flag of the People’s Republic of China has a red background with a yellow five-pointed star in the top-left corner. An arc of four smaller five-pointed stars is to the right of the larger star.
Did you know:
The flag of Denmark has a white Nordic cross set on a red background.
The vertical line of the cross is off-set to the left of centre.
The Danish flag, known as the Dannebrog, is subject to a legend that it fell from the sky in Estonia in 1319.
The flag of England, or flag of St George, has a white background with a red cross centred on it.
The Haiti flag has two horizontal stripes in blue and red. The country’s coat of arms on a white background is in the centre of the flag.
Check back in the coming days when we’ll be exploring fun facts about the flags of the country’s in Group E of the FIFA Women’s World Cup: Netherlands, Portugal, United States and Vietnam.
