Which country's flag looks the coolest?

Asked by elchoopanebre (3074points) May 15th, 2008

I like Wales and Bhutan (they both have a cool-looking dragon).

Also, Libya was not very creative with theirs.

Well Canada of course – maple leaves are so retro-chic right now. Macedonia has a pretty striking flag. Nepal and Switzerland get my kudos for breaking the standard shape and size. I also enjoy Barbados’ flag which sports a slick Neptunian trident.

I can’t decide on a ‘coolest’ because I like so many of them, but three I currently think are very cool are:

Quebec
Martinique
The Rising Sun [of coarse]
and
Francophonie [not a country but perhaps my favorite]

Britain’s Union Jack, of course.

Also, though I obviously look down upon their horrific war crimes and crimes against humanity, the Imperial Japanese Army’s flag was pretty awesome-looking.

@ljs- Actually it’s called the Union Flag. It’s a Union Jack only when it is on the mast of a sailing vessel. I learned this on “Doctor Who” so it must be true.

@elchoop- That thing looks super cool.

I like the German Flag with Eagle . Great, strong colours and the Eagle is just cool.

Also, the Isle of Man flag is just so odd that it’s cool.

I’ve always appreciated the Saudia Arabian flag, with the beautiful Arabic script and dramatic sword!

I really like the old ” Don’t Tread on Me” with the snake. It was a USA flag right?

Albanian flag is cool – and would make a great t-shirt or top!

British Indian Ocean Territory just makes me think of holiday(vacation) – it’s really cool!

I’ve always been partial to the Israeli flag…

And I do also love the British Union Flag

@Astrochuck- LOVE the Doctor Who reference! Oh Rose…

I’ve always like Jamaica’s flag for some reason!

Mozambique – it’s got an AK-47 on it.

Gallery of sovereign-state flags on Wikipedia (and this page is pretty good too).

I like the national flags of South Africa, Seychelles, the UK, Kenya and East Timor. And I like the state flag of Germany and state flag of Austria, with the cool looking eagle.
