Twitter Rereleases “Hashflags” ahead of World Cup Start

By Alec Jordan

If you want to show your fervor for your team on Twitter, the social media company is letting you do it in full color.

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but type in a hashtag and a three-letter country code and you can get an image of the flag of one of the nations playing in the World Cup. One note, though: you can only see the flags on Twitter: they won’t show up on websites or some applications.

This isn’t the first time that Twitter has let the hashflags fly, though: they made an appearance during World Cup 2010.

Here’s an image that shows all of the countries’ flags and their country codes. Do you plan on tweeting your colors?
