A late addition ...

Whilst my wife – Sue – and I were out shopping today she bought me another flag to add to my collection ... the Brazilian flag.


I have yet to visit Brazil, but it is a worthy addition to my collection and a reminder that a branch of my paternal family lives there.

  1. If you do visit Brazil Bob, you'd best not mention football.

    Crazy game!

    An incredible result ... and as devastating to Brazilian football as the famous defeats suffered by England at the hands of Hungary all those years ago (6:3 in 1953 and 7:1 in 1954) were to the game in England.

    All the best,

    Bob

  3. In 1953 and 1954 I was too young to appreciate football properly.

    By 1967 I was hooked! Another bad day for the England team.

    Anyway, nice flag, it will be interesting to see if you can play an appropriate game with it flying.

    I only have one flag in my collection and I practice my 'rebel yell' under it!

  4. Jim Duncan,

    My father was a very keen football fan, and the Hungarian victories over England made a great impact on him ... and thus on me.

    The War of the Triple Alliance springs to mind as a possible opportunity to use my Brazilian flag.

    All the best,

    Bob

    P.S. I also have a Confederate flag in my collection, but have yet to use it!
