4 Australia

Today I'm going to vote for another country over my own beloved United Kingdom. The Australian and New Zealand flags are two of the most striking and beautiful flags in the world. Can I help it if they sport the great Union flag too? - Britgirl

I've always admired this flag. The Union Jack goes really well with the Southern Cross. - PositronWildhawk

A beautiful flag that goes well with its colours

The mighty Jack makes it all the better!

The best flag in the world, on List of flags it jumps out, I am biased though as I'm British!

16 Wales

The top half is white, the bottom half is a vibrant green, and a big dragon resides in the middle of the flag. By far one of the coolest flags in the world. What makes it so underrated, besides that it's the only country not included on the Union Jack, is that nobody even thinks of Wales and how cool the country is.

Obviously, it is one of the most unique and creative flag in Europe. Yet, it is overshadowed by the boring English and Scottish cross.

17 Rwanda
18 Barbados Barbados

It has a vertical tricolor design, the outside little rectangles are blue and the middle one is yellow with a black trident in the middle. It is simple and attractive.

19 Puerto Rico

Adopted from the Cubans out of respect and their help, I love the flag I don't think its underrated here in New York City.
