This year’s tournament features 10 countries -- defending champion Australia, host country England, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka and West Indies. In celebration of the various countries represented, there are many opportunities to buy flags to show support of your country whether you’re at the tournament or watching on television.
Australia is seeking its record sixth World Cup championship after winning four of the last five. The Australian flag -- or Commonwealth Blue Ensign -- is a must-have item for supporters of Australia. Australia is a favorite again so buy the Aussie flag here.

The World Cup is currently in the group stages, which lasts through July 6. The top four teams advance to the semifinals on July 9 and 11 with the final being played at Lord’s in London on July 14.
