Top Ten Colourful National Flags in the World

Geography is certainly an interesting subject in my opinion. My favourite, especially when it comes to countries. The first thing that comes to mind when I hear about countries, it's their flag. The flags of countries was among the first things I mastered to the point I think of the flag of the country before I think of the location of the country. I've mastered it quite a lot, and I surely love a lot of these flags. The more colourful, the better usually. Here are the most colourful flags in the world. So here's the list!

The Top Ten

1 South Africa South Africa, officially the Republic of South Africa, is the southernmost sovereign state in Africa. It is bounded on the south by 2,798 kilometers of coastline of Southern Africa stretching along the South Atlantic and Indian Oceans, on the north by the neighbouring countries of Namibia, Botswana more.

This needs to be number 1 - DarkBoi-X

South Africa's flag isn't one of my favourites, but it's one of the most colourful. Just look at it. It's simple but has six colours and it looks pretty good togheter. Three of them (red, green blue) are my favourite colours, and the gold is so beautiful as well. The white and black make this flag even more beatiful - darthvadern

2 The Gambia Gambia, established in February 18, 1965, is located in western part of Africa. The capital of Gambia is called Banjul, the other major city are Serekunda, Brikama and Bakau which are the three biggest cities in Gambia. more.

Gambia has one of the most colourful national flags of all time in my opinion. It's because of this one of my all-time favourite national flags and is gorgeous to look at. Red, blue and green are among my favourite colours of all time, but it looks even better with the thin white stripes in between. It makes it look even more beautiful in my opinion. The best part is that the variants of the colours are excellent. I love that certain blue and green on the flag. If only the red was more "blood-red" like in Turkey's flag it would've been even better - darthvadern

3 Vanuatu Vanuatu, officially the Republic of Vanuatu, is a Pacific island nation located in the South Pacific Ocean.

Vanuatu surely has a beautiful and a colourful flag. While it doesn't have any dark blue, it surely is gorgeous to look at. I really like the sleeping Y shape and the black surrounding it. It just looks so stunning and beautiful in my opinion. The emblem to the left in yellow adds more to the stunning theme. And the red and green to the right just looks so right (no pun intended). Excellent and colourful one - darthvadern

4 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.

Of all the -stan countries' flags, I think this one looks the best and most colourful. While there aren't too many colours, the green colour is just beautiful in this one. It's a very bright one but looks excellent and so vibrant togheter with the complex rug to the left that makes it look even more colourful. This flag surely deserves to be here - darthvadern

5 Azerbaijan Azerbaijan, officially the Republic of Azerbaijan, is a country in the Transcaucasian region, situated at the crossroads of Southwest Asia and Southeastern Europe.

It's a similar case to the gambian flag, as it's a horizontall tricolour with the very same colours except in another order, and the white is a crescent and star instead of thin stripes. It doesn't look nearly as good as the gambian flag but it surely knows how to look good for me - darthvadern

6 Gabon

A lot of people I've met have said they're not a fan of this one because the colours don't go well togheter. Well I already explained in the solomon islands that I love this combination, and this one looks so vibrant! Especially with the bright colours, and it's colourful - darthvadern

7 Solomon Islands Solomon Islands is a sovereign country consisting of six major islands and over 900 smaller islands in Oceania lying to the east of Papua New Guinea and northwest of Vanuatu and covering a land area of 28,400 square kilometres.

Another melanesian flag? Well the melanesian countries surely have awesome flags and this is one of them. Vanuatu has better, but Solomon Islands is awesomne as well. Blue, yellow and green fit very well togheter, especially with that blue and the stars add to the vibrancy - darthvadern

8 Hungary Hungary is a sovereign state in Europe. It is situated in the Carpathian Basin and is bordered by Slovakia to the north, Romania to the east, Serbia to the south, Croatia to the southwest, Slovenia to the west, Austria to the northwest, and Ukraine to the northeast.

Why would I forget the most interesting european country which pherhaps also has the best flag in Europe? It's a horizontall version of the italian flag but way better. It looks better when horizontall, the green is better, and it makes it more colourful. Deserves a mention - darthvadern

Why is this on here? The colors are the same as Italy. You should’ve replaced this with Mexico. - MrCoolC

9 Togo Togo, officially the Togolese Republic, is a country in West Africa bordered by Ghana to the west, Benin to the east and Burkina Faso to the north.

The togolese flag is one of the happiest looking. It's a relatively small flag, but the small amount of stripes, and the big star to the top-left makes this flag look quite happy, and it's thanks to the colours in the flag as well. While the colours aren't bright, it still looks quite colourful - darthvadern

10 Ecuador Ecuador, officially the Republic of Ecuador, is a representative democratic republic in northwestern South America, bordered by Colombia on the north, Peru on the east and south, and the Pacific Ocean to the west.

The Contenders

11 Luxembourg

While I think the netherlands flag is overall better, this one's overall more colourful in a way. The blue used is much brighter than in the Netherlands flag and it makes the flag look happier and overall more colourful - darthvadern

Same color with about 83% of other flags. - MrCoolC

12 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.
13 Equatorial Guinea Equatorial Guinea, officially the Republic of Equatorial Guinea, is a country located in Central Africa, with an area of 28,000 square kilometres.
