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 is about 6 million, the lowest of the Central Asian republics. Turkmenistan is one of the most sparsely populated nations in Asia. Citizens of Turkmenistan are known as Turkmenistanis, Turkmenians or Turkmens.

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! >:(

The part that is hard is like the rug thing part, with all the different designs. The rest is just easy.

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.

The hardest flag in the world to draw by FAR. It has so many colors and symbols and it's hard and stuff.

Very difficult being the national flag with the most colors, 23 I believe.

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 754,000 and a territory of 38,394 square kilometers (14,824 sq mi) which ranks 133rd in terms of land area, and 160th in population. Bhutan is a constitutional monarchy with Vajrayana Buddhism as the state religion.

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.

Wow, Bhutan flag is actually hard, not the yellow and orange background, but the dragon itself, just look at that, so many details.

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 city is Minsk.

Wow that motifs are cool but so hard to draw. The green and red background isn't that hard. But that white motifs are INSANELY hard.

Again, not really hard just requires lots of patience.

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

5 Afghanistan Afghanistan, officially the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, is a landlocked country located at the crossroads of Central and South Asia. Referred to as the Heart of Asia, it is bordered by Pakistan to the east and south, Iran to the west, Turkmenistan to the northwest, Uzbekistan to the north, Tajikistan to the northeast, and China to the northeast and east. Occupying 652,864 square kilometers (252,072 sq mi) of land, the country is predominantly mountainous with plains in the north and the southwest, which are separated by the Hindu Kush mountain range. As of 2021, its population is 40.2 million, composed mostly of ethnic Pashtuns, Tajiks, Hazaras, and Uzbeks. Kabul is the country's largest more.

Their flag has changed since Joe Biden withdrew all American troops. As a result, the Taliban has now taken over Afghanistan's government after 20 years of Americans fighting there.

The background, black, red, and green isn't that hard. The hard parts are the mosque, the Arab letters, and that like crops are hard. The mosque itself is hard, the Arab letters are so hard and the insane crops.

Technically this isn't their flag and their new one is kinda like Saudi Arabia. Still, very hard.

This is the hardest since the thing in the middle is hard to draw.

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.

The european Bhutan but Queen Elizabeth is only a queen, not a dragon queen. Children there might call her that rather than the joke that the queen rules 24/7

Growing up in a Welsh primary school this flag was the hardest to draw in a detailed way.

It's a complex dragon. Maybe not as much as Bhutan but it's a literal DRAGON! Its never gonna be easy

This is the reason why Wales is not included in the Union Jack.

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.

Look at the shading of the wing! Enough said really. Most people forget that there's a snake being eaten! Now draw that

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

The eagle is the hardest thing ever to draw.

8 Swaziland Eswatini, officially the Kingdom of Eswatini and formerly named Swaziland (officially renamed in 2018), is a landlocked country in Southern Africa. It is bordered by Mozambique to its northeast and South Africa to its north, west, south, and southeast. At no more than 200 kilometres (120 mi) north to south and 130 kilometres (81 mi) east to west, Eswatini is one of the smallest countries in Africa; despite this, its climate and topography are diverse, ranging from a cool and mountainous highveld to a hot and dry lowveld.

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

I have no idea what the center piece is in the middle of Swaziland's Flag

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

9 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 British Empire in 1776 with the Declaration of Independence. They won their independence in 1783 with the Treaty of Paris. Its capital, Washington D.C. (District of Columbia) is defined by imposing neoclassical monuments and buildings including the iconic ones that house the federal government's 3 branches: the Capitol, White House and Supreme Court. Though it has no official language, English and more.

Indeed the stripes don't seem that hard but the stars seems pretty challenging if you ask me.

50 stars - 2 not included States - all of these tiny states which I can't even name = nowhere near 50.

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.

10 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

Very Hardest due to is one of the oldest designed flags in the world

So hard to draw!

The Contenders
11 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.

The country's rich cultural legacy is reflected in part by its 22 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the third-largest number in Asia and eleventh-largest in the world. Iran is a multicultural country comprising numerous ethnic and linguistic groups. more.

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

Sigh, the red part in the middle isn't too hard but that patterns...

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

Pretty hard nothing TOO hard but pretty hard too.

12 Saudi Arabia Saudi Arabia, officially the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), is a country on the Arabian Peninsula in Western Asia. It has a land area of about 2,150,000 km2 (830,000 sq mi), making it the fifth-largest country in Asia, the second-largest in the Arab world, and the largest in Western Asia. It is bordered by the Red Sea to the west; Jordan, Iraq, and Kuwait to the north; the Persian Gulf, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates to the east; Oman to the southeast; and Yemen to the south. Bahrain is an island country off the east coast. The Gulf of Aqaba in the northwest separates Saudi Arabia from Egypt. Saudi Arabia is the only country with a coastline along both the Red Sea and the Persian Gulf, and more.

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.

Were would you even start drawing this monster?

The only I can't draw are damn letters.

I don't speak Arabic

13 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.

Is it just me or does the symbol remind you of the USSR?

14 Haiti

The hard one is the coat of arms and its small very hard.

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

A drawing to me.

15 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, Alberta, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island. Its 3 territories are: Yukon, Northwest territories, and Nunavut. Toronto, Quebec City, Montreal, Vancouver, Winnipeg, St. John's, and Fredericton are major cities in the country. Canada's capital city, Ottawa, is in the southeastern province of Ontario, near the city of Montreal 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!

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

Bird drawn weirdly

I tried drawing this flag and the bird looked nothing like the one on the flag

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 the country's northwest lie ruins of Angkor Wat, a massive stone temple complex built during the Khmer Empire.

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.

Why does the temple have to be there? Really, it could just be a star, or a circle.

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

The temple. There's so much detail I never even noticed before looking closely

18 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), and has a population of 33,562 The country's capital city, City of San Marino, is located atop Mount Titan, while its largest settlement is Dogana. San Marino's official language is Italian. 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!

19 Serbia Serbia, officially the Republic of Serbia, is a landlocked country in Southeastern and Central Europe, situated at the crossroads of the Pannonian Plain and the Balkans. It shares land borders with Hungary to the north, Romania to the northeast, Bulgaria to the southeast, North Macedonia to the south, Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina to the west, and Montenegro to the southwest, and claiming a border with Albania through the disputed territory of Kosovo. Serbia with Kosovo has about 8.6 million inhabitants. Its capital Belgrade is also the largest city.

Ah yes my home country! The coat of arms is the only reason that it's hard.

The crown speaks for itself. Let alone adding the bird in all it's scary glory

This should be higher than the Canadian flag.

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

20 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 parts by the Sarawak district of Limbang. Brunei is the only sovereign state completely on the island of Borneo; the remainder of the island's territory is divided between the nations of Malaysia and Indonesia. Brunei's population was 428,963 in 2018, of which about 100,000 live in the capital and largest city Bandar Seri Begawan. The government is an absolute monarchy under the sovereign rule of more.

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

21 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

22 Spain Spain, or the Kingdom of Spain, is a country in southwestern Europe with parts of territory in the Atlantic Ocean and across the Mediterranean Sea. The largest part of Spain is situated on the Iberian Peninsula; its territory also includes the Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean, the Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean Sea, the autonomous cities of Ceuta and Melilla, and several minor overseas territories also scattered along the Moroccan coast of the Alboran Sea. The country's mainland is bordered to the south by Gibraltar; to the south and east by the Mediterranean Sea; to the north by France, Andorra and the Bay of Biscay; and to the west by Portugal and the Atlantic Ocean.

I had to draw this for my class and I am still in elementary school.I ended up printing it.When I showed my mom she was suprised I think should be higher ranked.Hwy should three stripes be harder than this really...even my little brother could do that!

Whew that drawings over there.

They also speak Italian, Greek, French, German, and English. The population is currently 2,897,400 people (254 per square mile). Most Albanian people are Muslim but some are Christian. Albania is mostly farmland and is known to have beautiful beaches.

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

I love Albania it is my home country they are very friendly people and very generous about you

I think albania is the hardest to draw because the eagle has two head instead of one head

24 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. The most spoken languages are Hindi and English, but there are 22 official Indian languages.

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

I am and Indian and cannot draw that chakra It is also having little bumps

25 Nepal Nepal, officially the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal, is a sovereign state located in South Asia. It is home of the famous Gurkhas whose name come from a small district in Nepal called Gorkha.

Hard to draw this shape
