If Football Kit Brands Made National Flags: Europe

Over the past year we’ve been posting a “If Football Kit Brands Made National Flags” every Sunday on the POTP /FB and Twitter pages and have now completed the continent – Cold War borders but designs not necessarily based on that period (plus one non-Europe bonus). Next the “expansion pack” where will cover the former socialist republics. (Apologies for any border encroachment on the map or perceived loss of land, we now see how hard drawing real borders must be).
