Centenary Square is currently playing host to a comprehensive collection of oversized National Flag badges – one for each nation and territory participating in the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.

This collection marks the spot for avid pin swappers, be they athletes, officials or spectators alike, where people can congregate and participate in the recent tradition, borne out of the Olympic Games.

Pin badges have become synonymous with sporting events and make for great souvenirs, completely individual to their specific event. As such, they have ascertained "collector’s item" status and become a popular commodity for people to exchange.

Pin swapping is great way of bringing people together and is a powerful embodiment of the unity and togetherness that are essential values of a Games, Olympic or Commonwealth. Breaking boundaries, creating connections, and conquering language barriers while picking up excellent and unique souvenirs from all over the world – what’s not to love?
