Pennants are equippable items that allow users to show support for a team during tournaments, by increasing a team's Fan Level - visible in-game to other DotaTV users. First introduced and utilized during The International 2, designated tournaments additionally allowed for pennant holders to receive item drops. Anybody wearing a pennant representing any of the two teams involved in matches were eligible to receive tournament items from events such as first blood and multikills during that match - events are team-independent, e.g. in a game Na'Vi VS. IG, a player wearing a Na`Vi pennant can receive drops from events triggered by iG. Item drops are no longer part of the pennant system.
