GOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAL! The exuberant call heard around the globe and understood in all languages permeates the airwaves from this month’s World Cup in Brazil. Coming off the heels of the Winter Olympics in Sochi, love of country is on full display with fans adorning themselves in their respective nation’s flag colors, face paint and artistic headdress.
Aside from text, images of flags are the key identifiers of teams on television. The networks use them for background graphics or when showing the upcoming match-ups.
