I like the Turkish flag, especially the history behind it.

Brazil, the Union Flag and the Stars & Stripes. I like them because they all have a 'story' about why they are the way they are, and I like the way the Union Flag and the Star & Stripes 'evolved' as well. I also like the fact that most people don't know which way up to fly the Union Flag :)

Most of the various European tricolours and crosses are pretty dull by comparison, and a lot of the African flags seem a bit unsubtle to my eyes. Libya's and Saudi Arabia's are good though. The old Soviet Union flag was quite cool as well; iconic.

PS I love Sweden and Scandinavia but how can Sweden have the coolest flag when it's a template for the other Scand countries with just changed color.

The Swedish flag is not a template; the blue background symbolizes the sky and the yellow cross is the sun. Apparently, a long long time ago there was this king who woke up one morning and looked out his window. He looked at the sun, which was in the shape of a cross this particular morning (I think he might have been a bit hungover), and the beautiful blue sky around it, and thought: "this is what the flag of our nation is going to look like!"

It's a true story, too.

PS. I like the Japanese flag as well.

The new Kiwi flag they were thinking about. Not sure if its official, probably not...but looks kinda cool.

That's cool! I hope they change it.

My favorite is the South African flag.

The Falkland Islands have a sheep on their flag. That's hard to beat.

Wales has a fire breathing dragon- it will flame grill sheep with one simple breath What a flag.......
