21 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.

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

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.

23 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

I'm not a huge fan of tricolours but I have to give credit to Armenia for their interesting color choice - Coolfox04

Beauty? Ha ha.is that why everyone is leaving the country!

Now THAT is one country to vote for. - RedDiamond

27 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.

Best Flag ever, unique memorable and cool

28 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

32 Soviet Union

Communism is bad? Communism saved our asses in WW2

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

Original best!

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.

I like how the flag appears naturally in the landscape, easily the best tricolor flag

35 Israel

Why Israel? Israel is not a country, their are just colonialist who take territory of Palestine

The only flag with the Star of David (perhaps together with the ulster flag). A tiny country with a powerful flag yet simple and pretty as well.

Rip off of Greece flag

The most ancient people, with the the most ancient Bible.
Simple flag that holds so much meaning.

37 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.

Best and beautiful flag

39 Denmark

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

The Danish flag is the Oldest flag in the world to be still used as a national flag. It inspired the flags of it's Nordic neighbours, i.e. Sweden, Norway and Finland.
