Top Ten Best Flags

Best flag design in the world could even be an old flag.

The Top Ten Best Flags

1 Flag of Great Britain

The one with the asterisk looking thing? Yes, I love this flag. You know, like... Ugh, I can't explain. The X with the cross? Yes, *... Something like that. I just love the country, a lot of great music comes from here, or starts here, and I love the flag, it's very nice.

It used to represent the strongest empire in the history of the world and it still represents diversity from 4 different countries that are incorporated in the flag. And after all the best nationality in the world-----GREAT BRITISH!

Most other flags are just boring stripes of colour, the union jack is a blend of the scottish, English and old Irish flag, its also not illegal to desecrate!

Has to be Great Britain, I mean it looks the best design wise, so asymmetrical, noticeable, it even incorporates the welsh and Scottish flags, into it too, also our flag is in the corner of other flags, that just is really cool man.

2 Welsh Flag

At any time, the Welsh flag outstrips any other in the world. The design itself is just amazing. It commands attention and it's a Dragon :) Nobody can forget the design of the Welsh flag. I am Welsh and mighty proud of it, it is rightfully attached to our Myths and Legends.

a dragon is well cooler than some stripes

The dragon is so much more creative than just some coloured lines either going upwards or sideways.

I love the Welsh flag. Showing their pride in their national animal, and I can't blame 'em

3 United States Flag

Us flag stands for the unity of the fifty states and there history that comes to makes us one unified country. With one unified history.

America and everything it is meant to stand for is represented by this flag. Not only does it look the best. It also has the best name.

The U.S. flag stands for freedom and equality for all and unlike all the European flags this stands for the people that no king queen or anyone by that matter is born with the god given right to rule and control. Not only that this flag represents our allies all the ones we have saved and the ones that have saved us as well. More people have been freed by this flag than any other country I can think of.

The stripes representing the 13 original colonies and the stars representing the 50 states of America

4 Nepalese Flag

Nepal's flag is the best because it's the only flag which is not rectangular in shape... Also the two triangles represent mountains, for which it is famous for.

The only non-rectangular COUNTRY flag. There are non-rectangular non-national flags such as Ohio, USA. - Idontneedausername

Not a rectangular shape! Every country have rectangular! Its only NEPAL who got different shape

Triangle for mountain, red for bravery, blue for peace relation with other nation and moon and sun for pride. All are best symbol to represent the country Nepal.

It's the most awesome flag
No other flag is bi triangular
Who the heck voted for others man

5 Canadian Flag

I'm Canadian but the flag is so stupid and definitely not deserving of this list. I understand how much Canadian Patriots love everything associated with Canada but seriously, one of the few things I've never liked about this country is the flag... A LEAF For Christ's Sake! Other countries have a sword or gun or dragon but no Canada gets a leaf, and you dummies actually think it looks good than you're delusional..

This a nice flags, I from canada and I have owned lots of flags from canada and a few from usa

Canada's flag is a symbol of national unity, using the country's two official colours and it's national symbol to show a unity between all of it citizens, no matter their race, gender, or religion.
The flag is used to represent everything Canada believes in, and it's simplicity and elegance is attractive and eye-catching, making it one of the most recognizable flags in the world

Honestly, whats not to love about a flag that has a leaf on it. Plus it went through so many different ideas before it became what it is now, like the first idea was blue bars instead of red and three leaves, that would have been more awesome but the one now is amazing as well.

6 Brazilian Flag

Each part and color has a coherent meaning
Also is shown how the sky was in the independence day, really meaningful

The most original flag of the world, not only because of its geometry but also because of the meaning of each colour!

I like it because it is a flag that chills you - littlemachine

Beautiful colors

7 Philippine Flag

The Philippine flag should be the best flag in the world, because each part of the flag has its own meaning.
A field of two horizontal bands, blue which symbolizes peace, on top and red which symbolizes courage and bravery, at the bottom. During war, the colors are reversed. They are joined at the staff side by a white equilateral triangle which symbolizes equality and purity. In the middle of the triangle is an eight-rayed sun where its primary rays represent the eight provinces of the Philippines (Bulacan, Pampanga, Cavite, Manila, Nueva Ecija, Tarlac, Laguna, and Batangas) which declared a state of war against the Spanish Colonization. And in each corner of the triangle is a yellow star, which stands for the major island groups of Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.

The Philippine flag is a great flag. Every color, every symbol, every shape has a meaning.

Just look at the colors, blue on top of red. It means that there is peace in the country, but also means that sometime in its history, the red was on top of blue, and that the red and blue can still be reversed because the Philippines would not let some parts of its history repeat itself.

The white triangle symbolizes equality. And the color white means purity.

In the middle of the triangle is a sun. In the previous flags of the Philippines, the sun already appeared in some of them but only sunrise in the mountains. It means hope. But now it means that the sun has risen representing the eight provinces that fought against Spaniards in its eight rays.

In the corners of the triangle is three stars representing Luzon, Visayas, Mindanao. The three major partitions of the 7,107 islands in the Philippines.

The flag represents the country and its unforgotten history ...more

Simple and meaningful.. And having a rich historical background which touches the hearts and emotions of every people.

This Flag if you Vote this you will be sure why you choose it. Because in the flag of the philippines the blue means Peace as the eagle fly, the red means war because philippines as the lion fight, the white means Purity of a Filipino, Stars Means the 3 Major islands of the Luzon and the last the meaning is the 8 sun rays means the 8 important islands who have a have hard time to work to save the philippines and if you vote this you will not be worried so vote this flag and like the Notes under of it

8 Bhutanese Flag

Another flag with a great dragon on it. - ozzydog12

Awesome looking flag with a dragon in the middle, whilst it might not be as smart/sharp/menacing as the Welsh flag, this flag is very cool!

How can a flag with a dragon holding oranges not be number 1?

It's cool because it has a awesome dragon on the flag.

9 Indian Flag

The Indian Flag is simply awesome. Its overall design, being very simple, represents the simplicity of the Indian people. Saffron panel on the top represents Sacrifice, it reminds the people that we cannot achieve success without sacrifice and it visualizes the Great Indian Freedom Movement and all the martyrs of the country. It represents the country that was born out of the selfless sacrifices from billions of innocent souls. The middle White Panel stands for Purity, it recognizes the purity of the heart over the purity of the body. It also represents Light to the path of Truth and Success. The bottom Green stands for Prosperity of the Nation along with the need to protect Mother Nature from threats. The Ashoka Chakra or the Wheel in the middle of the white panel represents the endless wheel of Law. It reminds the Indian people about the Laws of Dharma or Truth and tells the people to make Truth the principle value of their life. The Wheel has 24 equidistant spokes and it represents ...more

Every single colour, design in this flag has a meaning and a reason.
Bhagwa or the saffron colour denotes renunciation or disinterestedness. Our leaders must be indifferent to material gains and dedicate themselves to their work. The white in the centre is light, the path of truth to guide our conduct. The green shows our relation to (the) soil, our relation to the plant life here, on which all other life depends. The "Ashoka Chakra" in the centre of the white is the wheel of the law of dharma. Truth or satya, dharma or virtue ought to be the controlling principle of those who work under this flag. Again, the wheel denotes motion. There is death in stagnation. There is life in movement. India should no more resist change, it must move and go forward. The wheel represents the dynamism of a peaceful change.

Topmost Orange band represents scarifies that you have to make in your life (for your country / others), Middle White Band = Peace, Lower Green Band - Prosperity, Wheel - progress, Color of wheel - Purple represents power. Wheel has 24 spokes representing 24 hours of day (really the Time). True representation of Indian Values... Rarely you will find such meaning in a flag.

The combination of saffron, white and green is just awesome... The presence of ashok chakra make every indian, feel proud for their country..

10 Australian Flag

National Flag (2000 -):
What you often see with the Union Jack, 6 stars representing the states, with the 6th Gear-like star on the left representing developmental progress of the nation (albeit, our economy is kinda stagnating due to the communism).

Royal Flag:
Green. White, and Black flag with 3 red stars in the middle.

Old National Flag:
Red triangle in the left side, with black, green, and white stripes

It's perfect we have the best colours, the union jack and the southern cross hands down the coolest flag in the world from the best country in the world!

We have the union jack in the top left and our southern cross across the blue

This a nice flag, I owned a few Australia flags as a kid - trains45

The Newcomers

? Manx Flag

Is this a joke? - Idontneedausername

? Arizonan Flag

The Contenders

11 Mexican Flag

The rich cultural background it has is incredibly interesting, The meaning of the colors are great and the Eagle and snake coat of arms is all around awesome looking.

Aside from it's beauty, the eagle holding a serpent while atop a cactus is part of the history of Mexico.

The story of the Mexican flag is one of the best stories that come with a flag. I don't know the story in detail but you should definitely take the time to search it and read it.

I just think it looks so badass and it's so cool how it has this whole history behind it

12 South Korean Flag

This flag is excellent in the use of placement and colors. It is very unique, and so beautiful. Wonderful flag!

I find this flag is different from others and I love the simplicity of it. The use of colour is great as well! - williamsco

Red and Blue are waved softly at center, that means Yang and Um. And Black line means Gun, Gorn, Garm, Lee. Their flag is so mainingful,wonderful, hormonius. Great

13 South African Flag

Red, white, green, yellow, black, blue. "Y" flag.

Rainbow nation and colours. Old Dutch power and new power ANC flags combined. Splendid.

Colourfull like the nation

14 Albanian Flag

This flag is so easy to be proud of and that fits perfectly with the Albanian people, who are filled with pride for their country. Easily the coolest design out of any flag, and it's not shallow either because it holds a lot of meaning. Let me ask you a question, would you rather have a tattoo of the flag of great britain or the flag of Albania? If you say Britain, I say you're lying.

Dude, it's a double headed stylized black eagle on a red field. Not one but two heads. The Albanian flag has got to be the most badass flag ever. The choice of color is great. The design it's great. What more can you say. I would jizz in my pants if I ever met the person who thought of this. Genius.

Great flag
Much more beater flag then Serbian flag
And it's like a Montenegrian flag

It's a *don't mess with me* kind of flag

15 Jamaican Flag

The best best colours ever

Jamaica is the best place to live, work and raise families

Rastafarian colours all the way. - ozzydog12

D flag is just so mamazing, it shuld b N.1 on d list

16 Olympic Flag
17 Skull & Crossbones

The Jolly Roger is clearly and utterly the coolest flag that has ever been flown. These are the reasons it is so good:

1) It is a universal flag since it is not have one country/state.
2) It is the only flag (apart from the Union Jack) that I know of that has a nickname.
3) And it is so well known, if you show a different flag to a stranger, there is a chance they might not know it, but if you show them this flag, they will definitely know it.

So hoist the colors for the Jolly Roger!

Unquestionably the best flag, as well as my family crest... It is also the flag that REALLY represents freedom. Leaving aside the petty theft angle, pirate codes were real social contracts, and pretty fair ones to boot. Hoist the colours!

No reason. The flag is unexplainably AWESOME! I cannot believe the people who voted for the other flags! Yo, people who don't think this is THE best flag, well, you should be ashamed of your selves!

Pirates! Yeah! Pirates totally rock! And the flag is so well known, it even has a nickname - the jolly roger - and it is known by the whole world! It is also universal because it is not of a certain country! Go pirates! Pirates rule!

24 British Indian Ocean Territory Flag
25 Greek Flag

It has the cross of ancient kingdom of Knossos which exists 1600 years before Christian ages. Its pattern is unique Greek (Greek cross). And nowadays represent Christianity.

The meaning of this flag is "freedom or death"! It was the moto in the greek war against the ottoman empire for indepedence in 1821

The Greek flag is the best..

It is useful as a talisman.

This flag seems that there is an effect of a talisman.

48 Qatari Flag

Cool flag I like the spikes

49 Confederate Flag

The most beautiful flag in my opinion people died over this flag. Dumb asses that want to take down don't realize a thing I mean yea slavery was bad but Egypt was way worser people were basically tortured. Stupid robert bentley thinks its gonna end racist but he's only making it worse. Africa is a worser place to live in because its way poor so African people should be happy they live here instead of blaming rednecks.

Being completely impartial to its history and symbolism, I believe the confederate battle flag is one of the best flags of all time.

They should not ban this flag.
