Top 10 Flags with Misleading Symbols / Elements On Them
The Top Ten
UK has nothing to do with an island they didn't even colonize at the time - darthvadern
The flag of this U.S. state bears the Union Jack of the United Kingdom! - Metal_Treasure
Interesting how a number of consecutive flags listed seem to hint towards monarchy yet have very different governmental systems. Maybe they were going for something completely different in that case or were a monarchy in the past?
A great flag but Serbia isn't a monarchy and the crown is misleading - Metal_Treasure
Why is Denmark's flag (or at least a similar version) in the shield? - darthvadern
1) Montenegro isn't a monarchy and the crown is misleading
2) there aren't lions in Montenegro and this is also misleading. - Metal_Treasure
You forgot a thing, there aren't beige two-headed birds there either lol - darthvadern
There aren't lions in Spain!
However, I understand the symbolism of the lion. I love this flag, one of my all time favorites. - Metal_Treasure
I also think it's one of the weaker in Europe - darthvadern
Awesome flag but Vojvodina isn't a monarchy and this crown doesn't make sense - Metal_Treasure
Gorgeous flag but:
1) Chile isn't a monarchy and the crown is unfitting
2) there aren't lions in Santiago, Chile - Metal_Treasure
Is this how people in Sicily look like? Why this woman has 3 legs? Humans usually have 2 legs...Oh, and I see only legs and a head, there's no body... Ahh, I got it! She's a superwoman!
It's time to stop guessing: the flag was first adopted in 1282 and these 3 legs were supposed to represent the three corners of the island.
Cool. But that's really hard to guess. - Metal_Treasure
Wow... That's one of the most unusual looking flags I've ever seen. I need to get out more. - Gg2000
I am sicilian and I look like this. It's a very sexy look.
It's a Canadian province and I am sure there aren't lions in Canada - Metal_Treasure
Lots of mountain lions in Canada.
Another Canadian province and again, there aren't lions in Canada, except for the ones in the zoo - Metal_Treasure
At least Kosovo's makes sense seeing as it's a map of the country, this country makes much less sense - darthvadern
Deep blue and yellow, with stars, is often associated with the European Union and its flag(s) / logos. But Bosnia and Herzegovina isn't a member of the European Union (as of 2018).
Flags aren't the same but I find a strong resemblance. - Metal_Treasure
It resembles the Sicily flag because it was derived from it but this one is even more bizarre. You can't even guess it's a flag. It looks like a logo of a gymnastics championship or even Paralympic Games... - Metal_Treasure
I think this is considered misleading because it looks similar to the Flag of the United States when actually Cuba has traditionally hated the United States. - Powell
Never seen lions in Canada (the ones in the zoo don't count) - Metal_Treasure
Is this a flag or a logo of company for toys and games? - Metal_Treasure
A province in Canada, again, with a lion on it - Metal_Treasure
I didn't add this and Cuba and I don't know what is viewed as misleading in them - Metal_Treasure
