A-league football flags (AU & NZ)

The A-league football season in Australia is gradually drawing to a close, so I thought I'd mention a few of the flags flown by different club supporter groups. In general, each club has one semi-official fan flag, which is usually simply the team's badge placed in the centre of a background in the colour or colours of the team's playing strip. Not all of the 11 teams in the league seem to have these "unofficial official" flags, but many do. There are images of some of them at the following pages:

One further flag definitely deserves mention - of the eleven teams in the league, the most organised supporters' club is almost certainly the Yellow Fever, the supporters of Wellington Phoenix (the only New Zealand side in the league). The yellow fever have their own banner-like flag, and at all home games one section of the ground has quite a large number of these "Yellow army flags". The flags are taller than they are wide, and contain a fairly odd image in the centre: a moustache and hair. Club manager, Ricki Herbert was - as a player - a member of the 1982 national team, the first New Zealand side ever to qualify for the FIFA world cup. At that time, he wore shoulder-length hair and moustache, as was common at the time. The flag shows Herbert's hair as it appeared in 1982!
