Heineken reveals new flag design for RWC

Heineken is helping to kick off rugby's biggest international event, the Rugby World Cup, by launching new limited edition bottles, featuring flag-inspired designs

To celebrate the rugby season, and help bring the upcoming Rugby World Cup 2019 to life in New Zealand, worldwide partner of the tournament Heineken® has just launched a number of exciting new products.

To celebrate the diversity of the teams competing, 12, 15 and 24 packs will display flag-inspired designs from the 20 countries participating in the tournament.

No matter what team you support, there are bound to be some iconic moments this season. For a fun new way to celebrate those ‘champagne moments’, Heineken® will be offering Kiwis a limited-edition magnum bottle (1.5 litres). Made from brushed aluminium and featuring a cork top, the new bottles are green with a Rugby World Cup 2019™ design and the iconic Heineken star.
