WORLD Cup fever has taken hold of Fairlie as pub punters enjoy the tournament in their flag-festooned local pub. 
The Village Inn is bedecked in the colours of the teams at the tournament in Russia.
Publican Brian Flannigan didn't realise the flags were much bigger than he'd ordered and they ended up covering the whole bar.
Brian, who took over the reins at the Bay Street premises earlier this year, decided to get in the mood for the Russian footballing spectacle by showcasing every country's colours around the walls - but the display has now taken up the ceilings too.
He said: "I went on to Amazon and ordered loads of flags.
"I always like to make the extra effort and put on a good welcome for all our World Cup fans.
"We like to raise the bar for sporting events."
So the Albion Rovers-supporter ordered all 32 country flags and was soon in for a surprise.
He said: "It cost me around £85 for the full three foot flags and bunting but when they arrived I realised they were actually five foot by three.
"It's brilliant as the whole bar area is now completely covered in flags from around the world and it is a very colourful sight, and makes a big impact when you walk in.
"It has definitely worked and the regulars come in and have had a guessing game working out where all the flags are from.
"Some are not as easy as you think!"
The football flag mania has certainly proved popular as fans flock to enjoy a drink with the big match action.
Brian, who took over the pub with his wife Debbie in March, said: "It has been a great tournament so far.
"I hope the World Cup keeps producing the goods as it has been great entertainment so far."
