Top Ten Best National Flags

The top ten best country flags, based on the meaning, design, and how attractive it looks. Also, each flag has info on its meaning.

The Top Ten

1 Turkey Turkey, officially the Republic of Turkey, is a transcontinental country in Eurasia, mainly in Anatolia in Western Asia, with a smaller portion on the Balkan peninsula in Southeast Europe. Turkey is bordered by eight countries with Greece and Bulgaria to the northwest; Georgia to the northeast; Armenia, ...read more.

There is no such flag that has a true heroic and national meanings in its colors, only the Turkish flag's red can describe a nation's whole history from Middle Asia to Anatolia... The most beautiful design and the most charming meanings!

Turkish blood red in the flag represents the blood of the martyrs shed. At midnight on the blood in the form of a crescent moon and a star with the reflected image of the Turkish flag occurs.

In Turkish flag, red comes from blood that we shed on wars. Moon and stars comes from sky, that symbolizes freedom and democrasy.

Did the meaning of beautiful or best is change into boring and childish? I know that red is the most attractive color but, in here, it's pain in the eye. Did the picture means the moon bullying the star because it is small? Where is the beauty? Where is the best?

2 India

Bhagwa or the saffron colour denotes renunciation or disinterestedness. Our leaders must be indifferent to material gains and dedicate themselves to their work. The white in the centre is light, the path of truth to guide our conduct. The green shows our relation to (the) soil, our relation to the plant life here, on which all other life depends. The "Ashoka Chakra" in the centre of the white is the wheel of the law of dharma. Truth or satya, dharma or virtue ought to be the controlling principle of those who work under this flag. Again, the wheel denotes motion. There is death in stagnation. There is life in movement. India should no more resist change, it must move and go forward. The wheel represents the dynamism of a peaceful change.

India, s Flag is best in world as it defines Peace, Leadership & Happiness in its three Colours.

One of the flags which has every quality of being an ideal flag aesthetically. A highly symmetric flag with prominent and contrasting colour. It doesn't have complex intricate designs which may not be visible from distance. Also the white colour being in middle is more likely to be visible than being at border. The central circular wheel provides solidity and substance to the flag in addition to being highly symmetrical and pleasing to eyes. The green and saffron colour provide ideal contrast and looks refreshing. Also the horizontal strips makes the flag look more streamlined and flying away from mast rather than vertical strips which would make it look fat and heavy and immobile.

India is 21st senctury power in the world
Economically, population etc...
India falg is best in the world.. And India is all religion in the country so this is the best,... Rocks

3 United States

It's alright but it doesn't deserve 2. If this was the flag of some South Asian country or somewhere in West Africa, it wouldn't be this high. Most of the votes are coming from Americans who are told their whole lives that their flag is the greatest and whatever. Constant salutes, pledges of allegiance and flag raising ceremonies all for some average looking piece of cloth. There are many flags better than this and Turkey (which is #1 at the moment)

Red for valor, white for peace, blue for wisdom. Thirteen stripes represent the original colonies. Sky full of stars represents the divine, and and the current number of states.

All flags show how good there countries are. All flags are the best.

Tells a great deal through a simple yet elegant pattern. The 50 star pattern is the best looking as well out of the different star patterns.

4 Brazil

Brazilian colours have no such qualitative symbology, they are the colours of the imperial house (Green and Yellow) with the blue sphere being, in fact an armilary sphere showing the sky in Rio de Janeiro at the night of independence saw from space. The stars, beside being the stars that can be seen in that corner of space also represent the sates and the federal district. The motto (Order and Progress) comes from the Positivist motto "Love as a principle and order as the basis; Progress as the goal" which was a strong philosophical doctrine among the first republicans.

Definitely the best symbol of a nation, with striking and really meaningful colours, reminiscent of the past but minding the future.

This flag always catches my attention. I really like its awesome colors combination and shapes composition. I, too, think it stands in the crowd. Thank you very much for sharing the interesting meanings of each color and elements in the flag. Not in a million years I'd suspect that the green and yellow represent the Brazilian Imperial House. Finally, I loved your definition of this flag: "Definitely the best symbol of a nation, with striking and really meaningful colors, reminiscent of the past but minding the the future". I also happen to love the British Union Jack, Barbados and Albania. Thanks again.

Classic flag with a unique color combination, and a actual depiction of the sky when the country came to be a Republic. Clever idea.

The Brazil flag, displays its national motto, "Ordem e proggresso" (Order in progress) in a small white banner inside a blue circle, inside a yellow dimond, inside a green background. The green most likely represents the massive rain forests Brazil is home to.

5 United Kingdom

Whoever said that the United Kingdom is in Great Britain knows very little about either of them. The flag is called the Union Jack but it's the flag of the United Kingdom (the country). Great Britain is the largest island within the United Kingdom and also uses the Union Jack as it's flag.

United Kingdom is not a flag. The flag is called the 'Union Jack' and it's on this list already. - LemonComputer

The United Kingdom is in Great Britain. Great Britain was already on the list!

Yeah I think they made a mistake

6 Great Britain

GREAT BRITAIN IS NOT A COUNTRY it is the main island of the UK and N. Ireland is not part of great britain because it’s not on the mainland

I want to see a picture of these flags on the list. It would make more sense. - Misfire

A flag with a thousand stories behind it, both good and bad, but still if anything it is the most interesting flag with the most history which is fact, other than that I love it because in my opinion I looks good

The Union Jack [Potential pedants please note that it is still called the Union Jack when not on a ship. If you disagree, please do some actual research rather than repeating what was said to you in a pub]. The flag keeps to good vexilogical rules of three bold colours and has a very pleasing and balanced asymmetry (wide-wide up at the hoist or it is upside down! ) It is among the best flags due to a level of brand awareness possibly only shared with the stars & stripes. Change the colours or change it to black & white, or even put just one half of it on a t-shirt or bag it is STILL recognizable. This would not work with most other flags unless they had a complex symbol. By the way if Scotland become independent it will still exist. The first Union Flag existed from 1606 to the political union in 1707, because the countries shared the same monarch from 1603 and will continue to do so.

7 South Africa

All the colours define a peaceful rainbow nation

Looking at this flag always fills me with great pride, emotion, and shivers. We are not at peace, we are not at war, but we are all from this one and only rainbow nation.

Gets my blood pumping
Proud to be South African

It has all those african flag colors: black, green, and red - JustAnAccount

8 Bhutan

It is the One nation that can represent folklore and still maintain beauty and near-simplicity. It is similar to Wales as well and Both of which are really cool flags I would hope you vote for.

It is a sovereign nation with a dragon holding power orbs, Bhutan's name in it's native language is "land of the thunder dragon" how cool is that?

This flag is awesome. A giant fire breathing dragon I mean come on!

So beautiful but lots of other flags are great.

9 Canada

The Canadian flag demonstrates all that is important in providing a symbol for a national flag: It is simple, iconic, very distinctive. It is recognizable from a distance. It does not rely on colonial ties such as the old British Empire union jack; it does not use boring stripes or tricolours which are difficult to understand (I'm looking at you Germany, Belgium, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, France - although the French get a pass for implementing the Tricoleur) It does not have jingoistic or militaristic meanings in its design (er - USA for its obvious background & China and other Communist flags). It doesn't contain any complicated heraldry such as Monaco. And most importantly, it leaves religion out of it. this is critical to be an inclusive representation of a nations, there are no crosses (UK, Norway, Sweden etc ) no crescents (Turkey ) no stars of David, nothing. It is a beautiful symbol of a united country which has adopted a natural symbol of a stylized maple leaf (it's not ...more - JEDi624

It is very inspiring and you feel like sleeping with it as your blanket. Adios!

If you're travelling around the world and you run into someone with a Canada Flag on them... you know you just ran into someone friendly. It's a symbol of all the good things Canada stands for. - VADERtheIMPALER

It's all about Canada, not the history, not even the people but the glorious, beauty of thousands of miles that lucky people from all over the world have come to in the past, the present and the future to escape persecution and inequality based on economics, religion, social customs, sexual preferences, gender or political beliefs. It symbolizes the maple tree in the autumn when they change their colours - they are magnificent to behold. It inspires Canadians to remember that it's all of us that matter not just the few in power. No crowns, religious symbols, histories to mar it. Pure nature and the strength it gives us.

10 Japan

The Circle on Japan's Flag = IMPACT ZONE!

No offense to Japan though. You're a great nation, and no offense to Japanese people. You're awesome.

The red in the center of the japanise flag represents the red of the sun disk, whick makes sense because the meaning of the name Japan is "Source of the sun. "

Seriously people? It's just a plain red sploge surely this should be last!

Simple (one disc, not fifty! ) yet significant design. Fewest possibly interesting colours, and good ones, too. Definitely not eye-jarring or cluttered like more complicated flags often are. Beats even Canada.

? Vatican City Vatican City, officially Vatican City State or the State of Vatican City, is a walled enclave within the city of Rome. It is the smallest nation on Earth, and is the headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church.

The Contenders

11 Mexico

Well I. M Mexican what can I say I love my flag 'because has history and just few of the Mexicans know the meaning of the colors that has the flag a lot know about the eagle but just few know about the colors. Thanks

The Mexican flag relates the legend of Tenochtitlan. The eagle and serpent, and the colors of the flag represent what it truly means to be Mexican, and it tells the world a part of Mexican history. Viva Mexico!

I love this flag because I'm a Mexican and the detail is so cool like the eagle and the colors are what Mexicans use a lot and the story behind it is amazing.

Our flag represents too much, love, brotherhood, sovereignty, honor, loyalty, and above all means the living blood of men and women who fought for their country, for their beliefs, their family and especially their freedom, thanks to them today we can be free wherever we go, it will remain because we inherited the true honor to our house, and taught us that to achieve many things you have to work and fight for it, for me the eagle represents every Mexican willing to fighting that snake that represents everything that hurts nustra nation, homeland and national freedom. That and much more Mexico is the most beautiful flag in the world!. - RodrigoJJ

12 Philippines

The philippine flag is composed of different colors the blue is the symbol for peace the red is for war the white is for purity and the 3 stars are the three main islands luzon visayas and mindanao the 8 rays are the first 8 revolutionary places to go against the spaniards and the philippine flag can be flipped around so that the red color is at the top which symbolizes war

Well this is my country and I basically love everything about it, as anyone could tell from any comment on any other list about the Philippines I've ever made. But bias aside, I actually would say this flag is quite beautiful and I think should be in the top eight or so. - MaxAurelius

The only flag I think, where you can tell if the country is at war or at peace.

The Republic of the Philippines' flag is called the 'Three Stars and a Sun'. General Emilio Aguinaldo, leader of the revolt against Spain, designed Philippines' flag. The equilateral triangle at the hoist denotes equality. Its white color symbolizes purity. The yellow sun stands for the giant steps made by Filipinos in building a nation. The sun's eight rays represent the first eight Filipino provinces to rebel against Spain. The tree yellow stars represent the main geographical regions - Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. The blue stripe stands for peace, truth and justice. The red stripe symbolizes patriotism and valor. If Philippines is at war, the national flown upside down with the red band at top.

13 Nepal

Best flag in the world. Most unique flag. This flag has also got a beautiful meaning. The red color of the flag represents bravery of our Gurkhas which has been the reason why,being a very small nation nepal has never been a part of other countries. The sun and moon represents that nepal will remain on the earth until sun and moon exist.

Nepal's Flag is the best designed flag in the world. This flag has a many great meaning, the color of the flag denote many thing and event he border signifies great thing. This is serene flag in the world. This flag is the unique flag in the world. I Love my country.

it is very unique... and has a amazing meaning for the presence of a moon and star in the flag; it signifies that Nepal will continue as long as the universe exists... very inspiring... AG

Great flag with great meaning and shape.

The blue border symbolizes the peace and harmony that has been prevalent in the country since the age of Gautama Buddha, who was born in Nepal. The crimson red is Nepal's national colour, and it indicates the brave spirits of the Nepalese people. The two triangles symbolize the Himalaya Mountains and represent the two major religions, Hinduism and Buddhism. The red triangular flag has been a Hindu symbol of victory since the time of Ramayana and Mahabharata. The depiction of celestial bodies represents permanence, the hope that Nepal will last as long as the sun and the moon. The moon symbolizes that the Nepalese are soothing and calm, while the sun symbolizes fierce resolve. The moon also symbolizes the shades and the cool weather of the Himalayas, whereas the sun symbolizes the heat and the high temperature at the lower part (Tarai) of Nepal. Another interpretation: The flag's shape symbolizes a Nepalese pagoda. Putting a mirror at the ...more

14 Albania

Best flag in the world, with double-headed eagle and red field that presents a blood of fallen soldiers and black dressed mothers

It is the best flag because it represents the history of a nation. First raised by Scanderbeg in 1444 after his return to Albania to stop the Ottoman invasion & to unify all Albanian leaders. Since then the Red flag with the black double-headed eagle has represented Unity among Albanans. It is the flag for which hundred thousands of Albanians have given their life for.

The majesty of this flag is that its not only tue flag of Albania, its the flag of Albanians, which means it is used not only in Albania, but also by Albanians in Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Greece and in Italy by Albanian Arbreshes in Calabria and Sicily.

It is officially prohibited in Montenegro, burned many times in Macedonia & Serbia for the sole reason that it is sacred for Albanians

I'm polish but I don't like the flag from

Poland, because it's only colours. A flag is then beautiful when it have symbols. My favourite is the Turkish flag, I Love it but the Albanian flag is great too.

Greatest Flag! Great Colors! Red And Black And The double headed Eagle!

15 Turkmenistan Turkmenistan is a country in Central Asia, bordered by Kazakhstan to the northwest, Uzbekistan to the north and east, Afghanistan to the southeast, Iran to the south and southwest, and the Caspian Sea to the west.
16 Wales

The welsh flag is the coolest, most bad-ass flag in the world. Come On! It has a big red dragon. Not to mention the history and story behind it. It is mystical, magical and amazing. I imagine that children all around the world see the flag in an atlas and think "WOW, where is that place?!? "

Easily the best flag, has a red dragon representing it not just stripes and and columns like most other flags

Wales should be much higher. It has to be the best flag, it has so much history, and it also looks great. Its only lower down because we only have 3 million people living here.

Just compare with the Great Britain flag - how can the Welsh flag be rated lower? Fantastic colors and imagery make it unique and clearly the best in the World!

17 Germany

Really, it is beautiful. You have got to be brave to put black as your primary color, but it works for them.

This flag is one of the most encouraging, simple flags on Earth. All of the colors work to gether perfectly and portray the former beauty of the Fatherland as well as the people's present-day integrity, kindness and pride.

This is the best flag I'm american and the german is so beautiful with the favorite colors Germany is the most beautiful flag in the world Go Germany!

Then why not vote for Belgium?

They have exactly the same three colours and at least their food is better (not that there's much to beat with bratwurst and sauerkraut)

18 Kiribati

If this list was purely based on aesthetics, there no way it would be outside the top 5.

Unfortunately this Country maybe underwater in the future due to climate change and global warming.
However they were the First Nation to enter the new millennium which actually started in the 2001.

Never seen this one before... Now I'm having second thoughts.

The most exotic flag in the world!

19 South Korea

White is a traditional color of the Korean people. The emblem in the centre of the South Korean flag represents the dual forces of yin (blue) and yang (red). The yin and yang balance each other and maintain a harmonious existence by being complementary opposites, positive and negative, active and passive, male and female, night and day, good and evil and so on. Yin is the passive or static mode and yang the active or dynamic mode. The trigrams represent the elements of fire, water, earth, wood, and metal.

One of the best flags in the world. So symbolic, a simple colour scheme of red, blue, white and black.

Best country best flag

It is the national flag currently used from the time of being a colony in China.

20 Greece

The blue in the Greek flag represents the sea and the sky. The white represents the purity for freedom and the cleansing of the soul. The cross is for the religion. It has 9 lines to represent the phrase " Freedom or Death" during independence from the Ottomans. It also represents the 9 muses of Greek mythology

The Greek flag is a very beautiful flag. The white cross in the top left corner represents the religious orgins of the freedom movement. The nine stripes represent the number of syllables in the common greek battle cry, "Eleutheria H Thanatos", translated as "Freedom or death, "

It's the most elegant, peaceful and harmonious flag there is in the world these days. It fits perfectly with the beauty of the sky and its surroundings, no matter the weather.

The greek flag is just amazingly beautiful.I'm so jealous of them they have everything (except of money :p) beautiful and friendly girls amazing food beautiful language great history and greece is beautiful place.

21 Pakistan

Pakistan flag is very beautiful flag in the world & Pakistani flag create a relationship, love between the people

The color scheme of the flag is excellent, mind blowing and attractive + eye catching. It represents peace and above all rights to minorities through its white colour.

I love. The colors of pakistan and it is the most beautiful country for me

I love this flag very beautiful

22 Spain

Its The country the Revolutionized the world the most, I mean beyond the flag looking mighty sweet if it wasn't for Spain many Latin countries wouldn't exist, apart from being Spanish myself I love my country I believe that we have a flag with A LOT of history behind it

I really like it, it's bright colourful and strong! And also the coat of arm looks very good on the red and yellow background. It also gives out a royal vibe to it

Now THAT is one country to vote for. - RedDiamond

Amazing flg of the world

23 Croatia

One of the best

Best flag in the world!

Beautiful

24 Kazakhstan Kazakhstan, officially known as the Republic of Kazakhstan, is a country in northern Central Asia, with a sliver of its territory west of the Ural River extending into Eastern Europe.

Clear blue sky as a symbol of peace, golden eagle as a symbol of freedom and sovereignty, sun in the center of the flag as a symbol of prosperity and golden ornaments of on the left edge as a symbol of wealth and cultural richness.

I love that color blue, and the golden Golden Eagle. It is proud and bold and beautiful at the same time. I love that it represents the unity of its people, and they're hope of good fortune in the future.

The Kazakh Flag is beautiful, with a beautiful meaning - the gold to symbolize prospertiy, the sun and its rays symbolize abundance and fertility, and the beautiful cultural pattern that makes the flag unique - and the steppe eagle to represent the steppes and the culture of Kazakhstan.

The blue colour and the bright yellow sun with the eagle beneath - what can be the best?

25 France

Everybody know the French flag. Besides its beautiful, not particular but which inspired other countries for their own flag. It's more than a flag : it's the symbol of the French revolution and freedom. - lili117

Unlike its terrific national anthem, France's flag is neither distinctive nor inspired, and indeed, is outright boring. It is similar to flags of Russia, Netherlands and Luxembourg.

Red and blue... so pretty

Colours area amazing. Symbolism is great.

26 Norway

Such a neat design. Excellent composition. Good colour contrast. Bold appearance. The best. And cool on outdoor gear. My no ONE.

I love the red and white and all the jazzy colours come together. Norway should be at the top because it's nice.

The actual best looking flag right under the flag of the USA

Norway's flag is beautiful!

27 Iran Iran, also known as Persia, officially the Islamic Republic of Iran, is a sovereign state in Western Asia. The capital city is Teheran and the major city is also Tehran. The country's official language is Persian. ...read more.

Iran's flag is just amazing with warm colors and sign of Allah at center of it. It looks like Mexico and Italy flag of course but with 45 degree rotation to right. It is also a historical flag

I love my country flag and it's the best flag in the world and when I see it I fell so good. Persian Gulf for Ever

The best flag, very nice colors, symbols, reasons for the symbols, and the symbols and colors are not dull or stupid. - floridiancat

Our flag is very beautiful and is symbol peace and spirituality

28 Afghanistan Afghanistan, officially the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, is a landlocked country located within South Asia and Central Asia.

Well I think Afghanistan has the best flag because this flag indicate three lovely colors and each of this colors has it own meaning like, black shows mistry,Red shows blood and green shows peace and fortune

I think if you guys knows that what this flag mean, you would certainly vote to such a meaningful flag!

No country can match the beauty of this flag.

I love this flag

29 Algeria

Two equal vertical bands of green (hoist side) and white; a red, five-pointed star within a red crescent centered over the two-color boundary; the colors represent Islam (green), purity and peace (white), and liberty (red); the crescent and star are also Islamic symbols, but the crescent is more closed than those of other Muslim countries because the Algerians believe the long crescent horns bring happiness

This should be at least 10

I don't think there is better than the algerian flag is the sybole of true islamic belief bravery and power

Algeria is the best mlih

30 Australia

The Flag of Australia is a reflection of Australia's colonial past. (Discovered by the Dutch, Britain sends prisoners, Britain establishes New South Wales Colony, Granted Dominion, Gain Independence as a Commonwealth).The Aussie Flag includes a Union Flag in Canton (Upper-Left Corner) because when the Flag was designed it was part of the British Empire. The Southern Cross, the stars on the right, resembles a star constellation that can be seen from Australia. The Commonwealth/Federation star, the large star under U.K. Flag, represents the six original states of Australia, the seventh point represents any future states of Australia, at the time they thought it could be Papua New Guinea but it didn't.

Australia is a very beautiful flag. It has the Union Jack on it (See Great Britan) which signifies the link with Britan and the Commonwealth. It also has the Commonwealth star on it, with 7 points apposed to 5.

Australia has a rich cultural background that has been shown in the flag. It represents being in the commonwealth and having good ties with other countries. Also our flag has constellations in it. (that's cool right? )

Yeah, I agree but that's bias coming form me :D. - tony26

31 Soviet Union

It looks really cool. Shame it carries such a negative meaning.

I know communism is bad and all, but this flag looks pretty cool in my opinion.

I should hang one in my room
It keeps capitalist pigs away

Have to agree the flag is cool - VeganTurtle

32 Estonia

The Estonian flag is simple, yet elegant. It manages to successfully pull off the black stripe, and overall looks beautiful.

I just love the colors of this flag. It really is my favorite flag, maybe not the most creative, but the nicest looking in my opinion.

It looks the best, even if it is quite simple. Lots of flags are too complex and look cluttered

Simple, unique colours and meaningful. Great flag.

33 Macedonia Macedonia borders with Greece to the south, Albania to the West, Bulgaria to the East, Serbia and Kosovo to the North. It has a population of over 2 million people which are a mixture of pure Macedonians, Albanians, and Serbians. Macedonian is the language spoken in the country. Macedonia has beautiful ...read more.

A yellow sun (the Sun of Liberty) with eight broadening rays extending to the edges of the red field; the red and yellow colors have long been associated with Macedonia

You all have to be joking. Macedonia had at beautiful flag, but was forced to change it to this crime against aesthetics. Looking at it literally hurts my eyes. - qupp

The red base represents the blood of the Macedonian freedom fighters during the centuries and the sun represents the freedom.

Good thing that we changed it in 1993 to enter the united nations. Now we have the most bad ass flag in the world.

34 Serbia

The flag of Serbia is a tricolor consisting of three equal horizontal bands, red on the top, blue in the middle and white on the bottom. The same tricolor, in altering variations, has been used since the 19th century as the flag of the state of Serbia and the Serbian nation. The current form of the flag was officially adopted on 11 November 2010.

Serbia is the most heroic country in the world - always the underdog but the heart of a warrior.

This flag represent like the Nazi flag the only countries that are judge for genocide to other nations like Croatians bosnians and Albanians. Remember Srebrenica Vukovar and Recak.

35 Dominica Dominica, officially the Commonwealth of Dominica, is an island country in the Lesser Antilles region of the Caribbean Sea, south-southeast of Guadeloupe and northwest of Martinique.

One of 2 country flags with purple the other is Nicaragua. And it has a sisserou parrot. It would be ranked best if people knew about it.

It is the only flag with purple. It also has a sisserou parrot which is found only on the island which is cool. The only reason it isn't higher is not a lot of people know about the country or its amazing flag.

36 Italy

I am Italian. All the colours represent the nation really well. The flag looks so awesome from a distance and is simple to make.

It's Simple, Elegant and Natural. How life should be.

Yep, Italy has a great flag. - TwilightKitsune

Italy is simply the best at everything.

37 Tunisia

This is I think one of the simplest and best designed flags to be adopted in the last 50 years or so - even better than the Canadian one (although it shares the same qualities of symmetry and sharp simplicity as the maple leaf).

The red color represent the blood of martyrs and militants who sacrificed themselves for the freedom of the country,the white color represent :peace & tolerance toward all the other countries and races and religions THIS IS THE BEST FLAG

Really nice flag

You can understand the story of Tunisia through this magnificent flag

38 Lebanon

Lebanon is most beautiful country in the world... His girls are like bomb... And his flag is WOW... Please vote for lebanon to beat turkey

Amazing flag! Go see it! And you will be surprised, it is better than Turkey. The Turkish flag is awful

It's the best flag I'm not from Lebanon but my opinion this is like the Coolest it should be number 1

He's the best country in the world :P even if he is small but his nature and his flag are the most beautiful

39 Barbados

Objectively the best.

Just I'm quaking in my boots at how epicle this is. Just pure amazing. I've never seen the flag but it's just what I heard

It's amazing!

40 Denmark

First ever national flag and the oldest still in use. I can't believe the perfect cloth is only in 37th.

Simple and nice. Red and White are two great colors obviously because many countries seem to have those 2 colors. I chose Denmark however because it is the oldest flag and it has a cool origin. - Penpineappleapplepen

Why is the Danish flag so low? It should be top 1 because it has its own legend and the cross represents christianity. It is also known as the oldest flag in the world

The danish flag is the oldest national flag in the world

41 Sweden

Yellow is an ugly color and it means that Swedish flag is ugly. Why people is voting for this flag? Finnish flag has the same form like Swedish flag, but Finnish flag colors (White and Blue) are more better than Swedish flag. Maybe you guys are jealous about Finnish flag, 'cause it's so beautiful.

It was risky adding yellow to the flag, but the Swedes know how to rock it. Neutral colors like white are boring and too simple. I'm glad they made it bold and stand out. It doesn't look bad at all on official uniforms and advertisements too!

The Sweedish Flag has no real meaning, but it does look beautiful!

Sweden's flag rocks, it should be at least in the top ten, since it's colors are beautiful. - darthvadern

42 Uganda

To me the Ugandan flag is the most beautiful. Look at the beautiful arrangement of the black yellow and red colors. The meaning behind these colors depict a true African country. Black for black people, yellow for the sunshine received throughout the year, red for the blood that unites all people. The crane surrounded by the white color also depicts the peaceful nature of the country

I love its makeup, so beautiful

To me also Uganda flag is the best the decorations

Friend is from uganda and the flag is the best - natestjohn

43 Papua New Guinea

The greatest flag on earth - Papua

Best flag.

Every one on ya knees.lampshades

44 Mozambique

It has an AK-47 on time, enough said.

Guns in libaries

45 Saint Lucia

This flag represents everything

How is St. Lucia this far down the list? The twin Pitons in the flag represent the most famous thing about this island.

46 Sri Lanka Sri Lanka, officially the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka and known from the beginning of British colonial rule until 1972 as Ceylon, is an island country in South Asia near south-east India.

It has so many meanings the lions tail represents something.the sword does too even the handle of the sword represents something

Sri Lankan flag is filled with message of ancient legacy and its democractic and social face. Ancestors of Sri Lankans
(sinhalese) are believed to be from a lion which is symbolized in lion in flag. Bravery of people by sword. Red, orange, green behalf of different ethnicity. All three colours are are surrounded with yellow colour to point that all ethnicities are living peacefully. Four bo leaves to symbolize Buddhist heritage.

The most beautiful flag in the world. No doubt about that.

Lion flag in world best national flag vote for - kasun37

47 Portugal

Green represents our hope, that lead the country to discover South America and the first who navigated across Africa with the purpose of reaching India, Red represents the blood of the ones who died for the country, like when we helped Europe by expelling the Muslims out of Spain. A great combination of colours with a beutiful symbol. Simply the best. the ones on top are only there because there are more people from their countries...

The green of the portugal flag represents Prince Henry, the navigator. The red part represents revoulution. The armillary sphere in the centre is an emblem of Henrey The Navigator, and the five blue sheilds commemorate Alphonso Henriques, who established Portugal as an independent Kingdom

It's Christmas Everyday with that flag. Love the Portuguese flag, always have.

Most elegant flag with great meaning and very detailed.

48 Saudi Arabia

The Saudi's Flag holds the most powerful words in the presence

The most beautiful flag on earth and it has the largest flag pole top

Describe's the country in 2 objects. Islam & Peace.

It's the most historic flag the humanity knew

49 Qatar
50 Armenia

Armenia's flag catches the eye of any viewer with incredible and mysterious beauty, not to mention the meaning behind the flag. Red for the blood shed for the Armenian land. Blue, symbolizing the sky. Orange, symbolizing agriculture and the soil.

Hate the colors
