Wales.      I mean, seriously. The guy who sketched this clearly had been reading too much G. R. R. Martin.

Seconded on that one.    I also like the Luxembourg flag because of its use of a brighter blue than other red, white, and blue flags.     Also the Swedish flag for its color combination.  

Seychelles, Finland, Ukraine, and France   Respectively,  République des Seychelles   Republiken Finland   ???????   République française   (kidding on that last one)

Ooh, I love flags!! :) Make sure y'all visit my profile so you can add your country's flag to my flag counter... heheh. :P I was actually thinking about making this topic the other day but I didn't get around to it. Anyways!

My favorite flag is the Seychelles flag - I love how the five stripes all come out from the same point on the side! The colors are so eye-catching too.

I'm also quite fond of the Norwegian and Icelandic flags! The colors and the design go together very nicely, and they have just enough to them without being crowded /or/ boring.

I also like the flags of Bhutan, Macedonia, Estonia (best of the tricolors), and Canada ^_^

In my opinion, I don't particularly care for flags with crests or other harder-to-read designs. I like fun colors though, but with something simple and clean :)

Puerto Rico is my heritage, I love seeing this thing around. (It's also nice and small, like the island itself!)

The US flag because it's my country and it's beautiful.

I like the state flags more so.

 

New Mexico's flag is pretty cool, 2000px-Flag_of_New_Mexico.svg.png

 

as are Arizona,

2000px-Flag_of_Arizona.svg.png

 

and Maryland.

But my all-time favorite flag has to be Nevada.

I like the Korean flag because of it's simplicity and multiple meanings. Very clever of the designer

kflagsym.gif

 

I mean, even Rainbow Dash approves!

As for best non-country flag, I'm gonna say Hong Kong's flag, not because I live there, but because I genuinely love the flag.

It's also very mathematical

A close tie between Bhutan and Italy, i like the coat of arms-like dragon motif on the Bhutanese flag considering it's the last true traditional monarchy on earth. As for Italy, I like the color scheme, that's about it, lol.

I like Japan's country flag.

 

Japanese-Flag_Japan.jpg

 

It's simple and the red circle has a lot of meaning to it. Plus, I love white and red together.

My own.  :yay:

Not for design or anything, just a personal connection. I mean it's not really that extravagant, but it is my favourite.  There have been talks here to change our flag and remove the Union Jack! Of course, I don't agree with this change. 

Kiwi Flag:

It's actually really similar to the Australian one, which the pro-flag change people have used as a reason to change our flag. 

Aussie Flag:

Yay a flag topic :yay:! I have a handful in my room and a big Texas one on the wall!

I, have a flag counter on my profile which accumulates country/state flags of the visitor, so please check out my profile ;).

I would have to say I like Seychelles's flag for listed reasons. I didn't even know there was such a flag :blink:. And also Iceland's flag, probably because of the deep blue and the pattern it has that the other Scandinavian flags have.

As for state flags, I like Colorado and Arizona's.

Nobody has posted a Colorado or Iceland flag yet, I think.

(I should update my favorite flags section of my profile really soon).

I also had no idea Seychelles's flag was that popular :wacko:. It's a unique flag :).

http://ak4.picdn.net/shutterstock/videos/278980/preview/stock-footage-russian-flag.jpg

America is where I was born and I'm very patriotic for this country if our flag ever falls I will do what ever I can to bring it back up same with any other American

I would have to say either Estonia or Ireland.

 

- Estonia because it's flag has all 3 of my favorite colors.

- Ireland because my ancestry goes back to Ireland.

The countries with the best flags (in my opinion) are 

  • Japan. It's so simple, yet so awesome.
  • The United States. I live in the US, and see it every day. I've grown to like it.
  • Canada. Like Japan, it has white and red. It's a good combo. Also, dat leaf!
  • Russia. It's the best looking European flag in my opinion. 
  • South Korea. It's a neat looking flag.
