Love the Israeli hat.

Some of them are just way too plain, though.

I think France should go with a rooster, similar to their national football team.

All these new teams participating and still they can't revert the sport's Olympic status...

Chinese Taipei really needs a change--they could do so much based on the canton (青天, 白日) of the Taiwan flag:

They can't use that flag, or any variation of it. The People's Republic of China won't allow it.

Ausie cap is new. Last two times it was a solid yellow A and stars, this time they're white outlined in yellow

Well, first off, the WBC is a MUCH better setup and tournament than Olympic baseball ever was. It's funded better, it's actually supported by the Major Leagues around the world, and they can actually use professional players due to not having scheduling conflicts. It's not like they're just dropping the ball on that one, it's just too complicated and conflicting to make it work.

They can still use the canton of the flag (which ironically is the primary symbol of the KMT or Chinese Nationalist Party)--here are their Olympic and FIFA flags:

The problem is that the KMT is no longer the single legal party in the RoC. If they went with just the canton they would be using the flag of a political party. It would like if a US team decided to represent the entire United States with the flag of either the Democratic or Republican parties.

I hate to be that guy, but I think these new ones all look terrible, LOL. Except maybe Nicaragua. They look like they are batting practice caps created by a high school athletic director for a summer camp in 1993. Israel's definitely. Great Britain? Totally illegible.
