While most of us can be forgiven if we show our patriotism on the inside, during the Olympics it's time to let the flags and face paint fly... Or you could just put an Olympic wallpaper on your phone to remind yourself to check out the results every now and then.
Whether you're rooting for folks you've watched all year long or athletes you've never seen before (and never will again), the Olympics has something for everyone! (Let's just hope it's not Zika.)
While there have been many awesome Olympic flames over the years, the one in Vancouver remains my favorite. (Even if it did mess up during the opening ceremony. But we don't talk about that.) Isn't it pretty? Doesn't it light the fires of patriotism and athletic competition in your heart?
This stylized poster feels like it could hang out on your home screen long after the closing ceremony, with its subtle rings and beautiful layers. With the moon and the stars, it rather takes my breath away.

Want to cheer on your country of choice? Well, they may not have every country, but these spattered flag wallpapers are messy enough for real life yet still easy enough to recognize and stir some national pride within you. U! S! A! U! S! A! U! S! A! And the other countries, too. Go for gold!
The Olympic Pokeball by wazzy88
There's just something about the Olympics logo that looks like it could apply to Pokemon Training... also, this beautiful lunar Pokeball looks like it's ready to hold the strongest Pokemon a country could find. Which Pokemon would you want to compete in Olympic events? I'm saying Manaphy) for the 100M freestyle.
The closing ceremony will be here before we know it, but never fear: There'll be a Winter Olympics in two years, and another Summer games two years after that. And guess what?! NEXT SUMMER OLYMPICS IS IN JAPAN! Pardon me for a moment as I squee at the idea of being able to see the Olympics, take in the culture of Japan, and then pop over to Tokyo Disney and die of happiness at its magic. It may be four years away, but it's never too early to start planning the trip of a lifetime, right?
What wallpaper themes should I cover next? Let me know in the comments.
