Panasonic is encouraging people around the world to pledge support for their country by painting their face in national team colours and dedicating their social profile to the chosen team.
Among those championing Flag Tags is former British badminton player and Gold medallist Gail Emms MBE, Double European Champion and 2006 Commonwealth Champion Gymnast Louis Smith and Heptathalete and London 2012 hopeful Louise Hazel
