The matches so far in the FIFA Women’s Football World Cup have certainly showcased brilliant skills! We can’t wait to see what the remaining matches will bring! We’re celebrating the competition 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 F: Brazil, France, Jamaica and Panama.
The flag of Brazil has a green background with a yellow diamond with equal length sides in the centre. A dark blue circle is in the middle, with 27 small white stars sprayed across it, including the Southern Cross. There is a curved white band arching across blue circle with the National Motto on it.
Did you know:
The flag of France has a vertical tricolour of blue, white and red stripes.
The shade of blue was lightened in the 1970s by then-French President Giscard d’Estaing to match the blue of the EU flag. This was so it would look more coordinated in the media. It was changed back in 2017 by President Macron.
The flag of Jamaica has a yellow saltire which divides the flag into four. The top and bottom sections are green and the left and right sections are black.
The flag of Panama is divided into four rectangles. The top row has a white rectangle with blue five-pointed star and a red rectangle. The bottom row has a blue rectangle and a white rectangle with a red five-pointed star.
Check back in the coming days when we’ll be exploring fun facts about the flags of the country’s in Group G of the FIFA Women’s World Cup: Argentina, Italy, South Africa and Sweden.
