Top Ten Hardest Country Flags to Draw

The Top Ten
1 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. Ashgabat is the capital and largest city of the country. The population of the country ...read more.

Now, you may be angry at the design on the left, But that design represents Turkmenistan's Carpet making industry, with the 5 patterns representing the 5 tribes. So it has a reason for being there.

There must have had a way simpler method to represent the five major tribes or houses than those stupidly difficult to draw carpet designs.

I bet someone was creating a regular flag, some stars with a crescent moon, but then some idiot came along and made the poor guy to draw that design on the left. This really helped us kids out here trying to draw some flags! >:(

I had to draw this for class on a grand scale : it took me 2 and a half months to draw.

2 Belize Belize is a country on the eastern coast of Central America. It is the only country in Central America whose official language is English, though Belizean Creole and Spanish are also commonly spoken.

There is so much content to it. There are LOADS of different colours and it would take FIREVER just to get proportions right, as somebody said for the Bhutan flag, but this is even worse, because there's is so much stuff to compare it to. I know what I'm talking about anyway...

As a citizen of Belize, I gotta say, its kinda hard to draw the Coat of Arms aka everything in the white circle.

How is United States Flag harder than Belize?

You have to draw a Human, A tree, and the shield.

3 Bhutan Bhutan, officially the Kingdom of Bhutan, is a landlocked country in South Asia at the eastern end of the Himalayas. It is bordered by China to the north and India to the south. Nepal and Bangladesh are located in proximity to Bhutan but do not share a land border. The country has a population of over ...read more.

The reason I chose Bhutan is because the Turkmen flag, although really hard, it is a pattern, so once you get started you get the hang of drawing it. Bhutan on the other hand is not an pattern. So it would take much longer to draw.

The Turkmenistan flag has a pattern, but the dragon is completely different. It's also really hard to draw the dragon with the right proportions and position.

Good luck on anyone trying to draw this. There is WAY too much detail on this flag, it makes it look a bit ugly. The colour scheme is very unique.

It has no pattern, so it would take exactly 1093824 hours to draw based on astrophysics, ufology and calcius to the power of half of pi. That is why I voted on it.

4 Belarus Belarus, officially the Republic of Belarus, formerly known by its Russian name Byelorussia or Belorussia, is a landlocked country in Eastern Europe bordered by Russia to the northeast, Ukraine to the south, Poland to the west, and Lithuania and Latvia to the northwest. Its capital and most populous ...read more.

Its one of the hardest flags to draw due to the pattern on the left

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

I think that the white stuff in the middle are the hardest part.

The emblem is so hard to draw! At least it's only 1 colour...

The design in the circle is very intricate to draw.

Ugh the White thing is hard.

6 Wales Wales is a country that is part of the United Kingdom. Located on the island of Great Britain, it is bordered by England to the east, the Irish Sea to the north and west, and the Bristol Channel to the south.

It's hard to draw but in the end it looks truly amazing.

Straight up hard, but well drawn.

Beautiful yet complicated.

The dragon is too detailed.

7 Mexico Mexico, officially the United Mexican States, is a federal republic located in North America. The country is located between the U.S. and Central America, and is known for its Pacific and Gulf of Mexico beaches and its diverse landscape of mountains, deserts, and jungles.

It may start out easy when you draw like the Italy flag where you just trace 2 lines with a ruler to make 3 squares, then color the left dark green and the right red. But when you get to the bird eating a worm standing on a cactus part, you're gonna have a hard time drawing that.

Because we are trying to draw it but it's harder then the other ones.

The eagle's feathers have a lot of shades, very difficult to do in embroidery

8 United States The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the ...read more.

It's somewhat hard on A4, since you have to fit quite a lot of stars in that blue box.

I'm not from America so I don't actually know how many stars there are sorry.

I had to draw this in forth grade, so drawing fifty identical stars in a square and make sure they are not overlapping is kinda hard

That is too much stars

9 Saudi Arabia Saudi Arabia, officially known as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, is an Arab state in Western Asia (Middle East) constituting the bulk of the Arabian Peninsula. The official Language is Arabic. The capital city is Riyadh.

Voted for this. My handwriting is so bad people can't differentiate between my F and R...almost every letter looks the name.
No joke, even I get confused sometimes xD.
So there's no chance I'd get these squiggly lines right.
Flags with figures and humans are wayy too easy to draw.

The only I can't draw are damn letters.

I can't even explain

10 Canada Canada is a country in North America that is next to the United States, and it's the 2nd largest country in the world by area (size is 9.985 million km²). This country has 10 provinces, and 3 territories. Canada became a dominion on July 1, 1867. Its 10 provinces are: Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec, ...read more.

The Maple Leaf design is nice, but if you're a schoolchild, it will be impossible to get it right. Most attempts are just squiggles in red crayon.

Haha is cause it's based on votes and all Canadians vote it! Get some population Cambodia

Canadian here, try drawing this flag biased foreigners...

Canada Rules Because it does!

The Contenders
11 Swaziland

Wait, I have to draw this? Oh no...

Swaziland's flag looks like it was designed by someone high on acid

Yes drawing the spears and the pelts can be easy but the curly lines inside the oval

12 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's harder than canada

I tried it, it was hard

So hard to draw!

13 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.

The flag is really good until you zoom in and see the green and red patterns. Horrible. Ruin the whole flag.

Why did they have to have that pattern on the green and red?

The complicated patterns.

I'm from iran just don't include the pattern, it won't be as nice as the real flag, but still good

14 Mozambique Mozambique, officially the Republic of Mozambique, is a country in Southeast Africa bordered by the Indian Ocean to the east, Tanzania to the north, Malawi and Zambia to the northwest, Zimbabwe to the west, and Swaziland and South Africa to the southwest.
15 Haiti

Looks like they could not find a transparent image of their coat of arms

A drawing to me.

16 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.

Drawing that eagle and the pattern on the left can be really tough

17 Cambodia Cambodia is a Southeast Asian nation whose landscape spans low-lying plains, the Mekong Delta, mountains and Gulf of Thailand coastline. Its busy capital, Phnom Penh, is home to the art deco Central Market, glittering Royal Palace and the National Museum's historical and archaeological exhibits. In ...read more.

Since Cambodia is one of the lesser known countries, (I am from here) it does not get credit for having their prided Angkor what on their flag, having the flags of USA and Canada ahead of this beauty is blasphemy. It will not beat Turkmenistan or Belarus but I believe it should be in the top 10.

I had to draw this flag for a school project and it was really hard!

It is a Ankor what. It's a temple. Its coo, inside their irl. There's a big tree growing over things. Its cool

Whenever there is a project, it takes me forever to draw this flag,

18 Brazil Brazil, officially the Federative Republic of Brazil, is the largest country in both South America and the Latin American region.

Drawing those polygons is obviously ease. And, so, the hard part: those stars at the center are a EXACT representation of the sky the day Brazil turns independent.

19 Brunei Brunei, officially the Nation of Brunei, the Abode of Peace, is a sovereign state located on the north coast of the island of Borneo in Southeast Asia. Apart from its coastline with the South China Sea, the country is completely surrounded by the Malaysian state of Sarawak. It is separated into two ...read more.

As a Bruneian myself, it's hard for me to draw the coat of arms, this flag is hard to draw.

20 San Marino San Marino, officially the Republic of San Marino, also known as the Most Serene Republic of San Marino, is an enclaved microstate surrounded by Italy, situated on the Italian Peninsula on the northeastern side of the Apennine Mountains. San Marino covers a land area of just over 61 km2 (24 sq mi), ...read more.

The flag is pretty nice but the emblem ruins it! At least there is another variant so you can kinda don't have to draw the emblem.

Hard to draw, if you mess up one detail it has an impact on the rest of the flag. However the end result is beautiful.

Looks like a beer logo

Look at the details. Wow!

21 India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world. Its capital is New Delhi. Some other major cities are Mumbai, Chennai, and Ahemdabad. ...read more.

Hey, drawing 24 stripes inside a circle with having an equivalent distance from each other. Draw a hexagon and then bisect it into four.

22 Serbia Serbia, officially the Republic of Serbia, is a sovereign state situated at the crossroads between Central and Southeast Europe, covering the southern part of the Pannonian Plain and the central Balkans.

This should be higher than the Canadian flag.

I fear no man.
But that thing...
<--
It scares me.

23 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.

It Is very complicated and hard to draw. I just drew it and it took me over an hour to finish the sketch

The damn keys ruin the whole thing. Colour scheme is pretty nice though.

Its easy for the yelloy and white part but its too haard to draw the thing on the white paart. I think it's the arms

24 Albania Albania is a southeastern European country that is slightly larger than Maryland and near Montenegro, Kosovo, Republic of Macedonia, and Greece. The capital is a city called Tirana. Some other major cities in Albania are Durrës, Elbasan, Vlorë, and Shkodër. Albania gained its independence in 1912. ...read more.

How is this not number 1? Do you seriously think Ukraine's and Canada's flags are harder to draw?

25 Nepal Nepal, officially the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal, is a sovereign state located in South Asia. ...read more.
