To me it seems a bit naff.
Also it is a risk to your car, of being broken into, due to the gap left in the window from where the flag attachs to the car window. The gap is probably big enough to fit a item through to brake the window.

No, not just you, i noticed that on the M6 today, there were a few. Not 30though! World Cup fever has hit!
Where i work we have sold out of them in the last week, they seem pretty popular! Must confess, i have them for my car aswell!
Lets just hope that the players live up to the hype! With Steven Gerrard in a rich vein of form we stand every chance! The country will probably grind to a stand still on match days!

There's nothing wrong with showing a bit of patriotism and support for England during the world, it happens during every tournament. It's certainly not 'naff' or strange. When the world cup finishes the flags will disappear.

I visited England during WC2002, and wondered about the many flags hanging from houses, cars, etc, and not even knowing what the heck that flag was for. Up to that point, I had believed that the Union Jack was the only flag, and England, Wales, and Scotland didn't have their own flags. Stupid me. Now I know.

I remember during the 2002 cup I was in Toronto and there were flags from all of the countries it seemed almost everywhere, due to the large ethnic communities in the city. I saw lots of Brazilian, Turkish, Korean, Italian, Portuguese, German flags, etc all over. I'm sure there will be a repeat this time around.
