For the same price, you can have this premium backpack whilst flags are available at a more reasonable price, under £10.
A range of casual clothing is up for grabs as well, from classic t-shirts and hoodies to more discerning pieces such as this collaboration with Ben Sherman . There are also further separate ‘collection’ ranges as well as a full line dedicated to children

When does the Olympics start and what to expect at the opening ceremony?
The games run from 21 July until 8 August.
For the first time ever, Team GB will consist of more women than men, with 376 athletes in total.
At Friday’s opening ceremony, expect technology to be a dominant theme, reflecting Japan’s influence on that industry.
Back in 2016, Japan’s then Prime Minister Shinzo Abe dressed as Mario for a Nintendo influenced handover at the Rio Olympics.
Similar themes are expected in Tokyo.
