What are the world’s most interesting flags? Just like a person’s style can say a lot about them, flags can tell you so much about the country, region, or state they represent. There are 197 recognized countries in the world and each of them has its national flag. Bright Side has carefully studied the flags from all over the world and found many interesting coincidences as well as unusual and entertaining facts that we didn’t even suspect.
Most flags are rectangles, but what about the few that aren’t? And what do all those colors and symbols really mean? We’re about to answer those questions and a whole lot more. Today, we’re gonna focus on 32 countries with the most creative national flags!
The majority of world flags, 55 to be exact, are horizontal and feature three tricolor stripes in their design. Red, white, and blue, as I’m sure you’ve noticed, are the most popular colors; at least one of them is pretty much always present on a country’s flag. The flags of the world are just as diverse as its people.
