If I graded the flags of the world aesthetically, these would be at the top of my list.
  1. 1.
    Oh, were all of you doing rectangular flags? Cuz Nepal just outdid everyone with this irregular shape. Way to think outside the bun, Nepal!
  2. 2.
    Iconic. Let's throw the whole night sky on our flag. Excessive, yes, but perfectly Brazilian.
  3. 3.
    Honey, you are on FIRE. A country this small doesn't deserve such a great flag but you went and SHOWED EVERYONE! This. Is. Everything.
  4. 4.
    Bosnia and Herzegovina
    Love how they play with borders here and cut off some of the stars. The yellow triangle cutting up the blue space gives me hot flashes. Great work.
  5. 5.
    Minimalist perfection. Less is more. Hey, American flag, you could learn a few things from Japan.
  6. 6.
    South Africa
    Africa has some of the worst flags, but South Africa nailed it. A basic country would have a white border on the left, but they went YELLOW. Love it.
  7. 7.
    O-P-U-L-E-N-C-E. Opulence. You own everything. Everything is yours.
  8. 8.
    I like bold flags and I like clarity of concept. And the Canadian flag is serving me both. This flag says, "You want trees? WE. GOT. TREES."
  9. 9.
    South Korea
    Slightly asymmetrical perfection. Those four black symbols are giving me LIFE.
  10. 10.
    I want to wear this flag as a shirt.
  11. 11.
    Nice work, Barbados. Bold symbol. You are sending me on a POSEIDON ADVENTURE.
  12. 12.
    Nice clean design. I feel like this flag smells like fresh laundry.
  13. 13.
    Saint Lucia
    Guys, we could put a triangle right in the middle of our fucking flag. Hold on, what about triangles inside triangles?! RISKS. PAY. OFF.
  14. 14.
    I'm having a Diana Vreeland "the eye has to travel" moment with your flag, Jamaica.
  15. 15.
    I see that eagle flying under the sun and all I can say it YAAASSS BITCH. OH MY GOD. YOU LOOK AMAZING. WERRRRK!
  16. 16.
    A lot of flags tried to do this exact same thing, but you chose the best color combo, Sweden. I look at this flag and I feel TRANQUILITY.
  17. 17.
    A unique national symbol that's beautifully symmetrical and works with the layout of your background? That's how you make a FLAG! Yes!
  18. 18.
    Of all the boring three bands of color flags, Germany did it the best. Truly a bold move to be in Europe and use BLACK as one of your colors.
  19. 19.
    Summertime REALNESS. You're giving me beach, you're giving me seersucker. This is the ultimate resort wear flag.
  20. 20.
    I feel like this flag is watching me. It knows my innermost thoughts. Putting it on here out of respect but also fear.
  21. 21.
    Honorable Mention: ISIS
    HEAR ME OUT. ISIS is pure evil. But they're great at BRANDING. You see this flag and you RUN. Also it's giving me a Matisse cut-out effect.
