    -> support “i-don´t-care-who-wins-team” and fix no flag at all
    -> have no interest in the worldcup and fix a bayern-münchen flag
    -> or break the rules and “confuse” (= my car; any others out there?)

    …this is almost like talking politics… ;-)

  6. Dear Editor,

    may I humbly point out that the above flag you have constructed shows the national colours of Malawi.
