China, despite failing to book a ticket to the World Cup in Brazil, has found its own way to participate. Manufacturing workers have been working around the clock on assembly lines churning out flags and banners that millions of fans will carry while cheering for their national squads. The 2014 World Cup will kick off on June 12 with 32 teams vying for the trophy.
