Which national flag do you like most ?(except your country)

Forums - General Discussion - Which national flag do you like most ?(except your country)

I wonder why so many flags are blue, white and red. Especially the western countries seem to like those colors.

Your thoughts ?

neat thread, you should make one for national anthems, as well



Bet with PeH: 

I win if Arms sells over 700 000 units worldwide by the end of 2017.

Bet with WagnerPaiva:

 

I win if Emmanuel Macron wins the french presidential election May 7th 2017.

Jamaica, Belgium and North Korea's are pretty sick.

Red and blue, sorry, purple and marine, were considered royal and powerful (hence why heraldric symbols like lions and griffins are most often red - unless they're gold). The reason for the white, sorry, silver in between is because on the rules of heraldry no two colors or two metals (silver for white and gold for yellow, some tried to bend that rule with copper for red to make it fit) were allowed to touch each other, hence all those color-silver-color or color-gold-color designs.

And for why especially red, blue and white, well that's mostly due to the tricolore from the french revolution symbolizing democracy in the 19th and early 20th century



I'm technically Argentine, so I guess this is allowed..? It's the only flag that instantly jumps to my mind for being really great. The colors are really great and it looks nothing like 99% of flags out there.

Edit: well, I guess if Brazil isn't allowed, then South Korea takes it.

It's basically a cooler version of the Japan flag, which itself isn't half-bad.

The usual explanation about the French flag is that the blue and red are the historical colors of Paris (each symbolizing a Saint), and the white in the middle was the color of the king. 



State flags, unfortunately, are symbols of oppression and murder. I don't like any of them.
