We asked you to send in pictures of the flags you raised to show support for your favourite football team in the World Cup and you responded by sending in pictures from near and far.

Vanessa Robinson said 'I live in Germany but my house and I are for England (home town Alnwick). For each hurdle they go, another flag goes up!' and another German resident was Gillian Boer who said 'I live in Germany. My home town is Amble, Northumberland . Have to support my team! ' Other pictures were from closer to home including Dawn McMullen from The Wool Shop in Alnwick who came up with a great colourful window display. Of course not everyone supports England! Taylor Howie hoisted up a Swedish flag up - we wonder if it is still flying? As excitement mounts for the next game in the World Cup remember to send in pictures that reflect your pride in our football team - c'mon England.....
