finishing what @chris started
  1. Bulgaria
    F895ace2 1413 4cd3 9c6d 671d9c0d8318
    Pretty shocking, right? I’ve never been able to figure out exactly why Bulgaria’s insanely provocative flag hasn’t faced much controversy. I guess people are confused as to what exactly its message is? I know I’m certainly confused
  2. France
    2c74b00a 6b40 451c 91eb 341502b48bb0
    I like the "meta" design, but the blue stripe on the foreground banner really clashes with the blue sky of the background
  3. Canada
    7ddf7316 fff5 4e2d 8e1f 16076d061913
    The famed “Maple Leaf" flag is an instantly recognizable symbol of the Canadian people, but it has recently drawn criticism for featuring a white model who doesn’t represent Canada’s status as a multicultural hub
  4. Mali
    022648ed 1e42 4187 875c 9e5fb430a944
    Am I the only one who thinks the left-most warrior looks exactly like Emeril Lagasse?
  5. VietBAM!
    5ed33be9 9ab9 40eb 8265 bd8ad2f842e6
    Am I the only one who thinks the smiling chef looks exactly like Emeril Lagasse?
  6. Sweden
    E1dbfd4b edd2 41ba ab5b 34f0cf5bb7ef
    Known as “Flaggen Antikristen” (Antichrist Flag), Sweden’s notoriously controversial national emblem turns the familiar Christian cross on its side in a shameful show of disrespect to Our Lord And Savior
  7. South Korea
    63f22813 63d2 4056 b507 0163c77fa156
    Although critics lambasted it as a short-sighted cash-grab upon its adoption in 2012, sales of the so-called “Gangnam Flag” helped South Korea recover from its worst economic downturn in 40 years
  8. South Africa
    C4dbe0aa 289f 4c62 afc7 d303db4df783
    The new post-apartheid government was in such a rush to adopt a fresh national flag that they accidentally forgot to purchase the rights to the image of Nelson Mandela that they used for it. South Africans have taken the mistake in stride, however, and their national rugby team is now known informally as “The iStocks"
  9. Afghanistan
    85279aa4 9935 4d39 a2be cc64803fc383
    I feel like there is a lot going on with Afghanistan, sucks that they went with such a straightforward flag
  10. Afghaniston
    4610fff2 b014 4af9 9a64 c2558d019780
    Like Afghanistan, Afghaniston's flag is a little too on the nose for my tastes
  11. China
    83dd5e40 df80 43bf 987a 44517abab871
    Any similarities between the flag’s non-traditional shape and a map of the continental United States are purely coincidental, as it was actually created by the Shang dynasty in 1271 BC, millennia before the first outsiders visited North America
  12. Kitti Arabia
    B340e2ce 7d76 49c2 b6e8 41ac9ec734c5
    Kitti Arabia has faced intercational criticism and CATO sanctions due to its spotty human bites record (including a law which prevents felines from driving), but the devoutly Fuzzlim and oil-rich "petco state" has nonetheless developed a cult internet following due to its supercute flag
  13. Republic of Pie
    E216d486 cba2 4c95 ae1b 7033c1f95a3a
    This tiny nation, an enclave within the city of Los Angeles, is not to be confused with its larger war-torn counterpart, the Democratic Republic of Pie
  14. Tajikistan
    Fd61cbbe 4a85 4d03 94d0 30ce69760623
    The famously hard-working people of Tajikistan look to their national flag as inspiration to get them through the work week. In the first three years after this flag was adopted in 2005, worker productivity rose 17 percent
  15. Paraguay
    Ed5ed94b f0b8 4593 84e8 348b89224144
    The 50 stars on Paraguay's flag represent the country's 50 best restaurants
  16. Liberia
    D08ad4f4 f6f5 4590 a228 d1052b8cc53a
    The star on Liberia's flag represents El Quinto Mejor, the fifth-best restaurant in Paraguay
  17. Jamaica
    D644b973 a851 4325 801e 05022ca11833
    Rasta Banana Dad was already going to live forever in our hearts, but thanks to a 2014 act passed by Jamaica’s Parliament, he’ll also be immortalized on the island nation’s flag
  18. Yemen
    912891ac 716e 4a04 98e5 84b3c83476db
    *sigh*
  19. Australia
    D4f5659e 3045 4c06 9044 3ab6262d4667
    The 20 Australians featured on their country's flag are all winners of a nation-wide essay contest with the prompt "What Australia Means to Me"
  20. United States of America
    7cdbbdba 7fc8 43b0 884c f973112909d1
    A classic. Timeless
