The Top Ten

1 Turkmenistan 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.

Very complex

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! >:(

The poor person who had to make this flag! Must've taken like, 2 years! and sewing this thing?! SEWING THIS FLAG?

Damn! painting like flag.

Its by far the most difficult and complex of the flags listed here

I had to draw this for social studies and it took me about 3 hours to fully make it and half of the time was spent just drawing the symbol in the middle

Drawing the humans is very hard.

3 Bhutan Bhutan Bhutan, officially the Kingdom of Bhutan, is a landlocked country in South Asia at the eastern end of the Himalayas.

The designs and the detail also how thin the lines are!

How do the people in this country draw this flag.Its IMPOSSIBLE

Bhutan’s flag is one of my favorite flags
It is really complicated too. It looks like it is holding 4 magical light orbs

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

This should be at the top because that's HARD

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

I don't even dare to draw that dragon

This flag should be first or second hardest to draw

7 Mexico 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.

I cried while drawing this

16 colours...

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. - HoldenFanatic

REALLY HARD to draw the bird

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 more.

I love united states

There are 50 stars

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

It's kinda hard to draw, not the hardest though

9 Swaziland Swaziland

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

I could not draw this,

When I was young this flag made me scared and gave me nightmares (? )

Swaziland are living in stone age still today. The women don't know that it is must for them to cover their private parts and this under developed country really stinks like its flag.

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

It so hard

I don't agree. Even a child can draw that sun and eagle is just a bit of difficult for average person, but it is easy for the ones who are master at art.

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

16 Haiti Haiti

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

The center would probably be hard

17 Cambodia 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 more.

Angkor what temple is hard to draw I think nobody can draw like this image

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!

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

18 Ukraine Ukraine Ukraine is a sovereign country in Eastern Europe, bordered by Russia to the east and northeast, Belarus to the northwest, Poland and Slovakia to the west, Hungary, Romania, and Moldova to the southwest, and the Black Sea and Sea of Azov to the south and southeast, respectively.

It's taken 4 years for me to draw this flag. It is truly impossible.

It is completely impossible I just can't

This is a very hard flag to draw. I have been trying for over three hours but I just can't get that subtle color divide between the yellow and the blue. I'm afraid that this flag has got the best of me- I shall forever live in the shadow of the great nation Ukraine.

If this is hard for you literally have no brain mass. - SpicyMemeMan

27 Brazil 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.

Not hard at all

28 Spain Spain Spain, officially the Kingdom of Spain, is a sovereign state largely located on the Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Europe, with archipelagos in the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea, and several small territories on and near the north African coast.

As a Hungarian, I would say it is easy. However, with the coat of arms, it can be difficult, but you will get the hang of it. (too bad they do not have the coat of arms version)

Why is this even on the list? This is as easy as Italy, Belgium, Russia, France, Austria, The Netherlands, Romania, Ireland, and Germany!

It took me 30 years to draw I lost a hand. - TeamRocket747

Too many stars

38 Bangladesh Bangladesh Bangladesh, on the northern coast of the Bay of Bengal, is surrounded by India, with a small common border with Myanmar in the southeast. The country is low-lying riverine land traversed by the many branches and tributaries of the Ganges and Brahmaputra rivers.

It's just a big ass circle how hard is that?
