The only national flag in the world to feature a modern assault rifle. The AK-47 is supposed to represent defence and vigilance in a country that was beset with civil war for over a decade.
One of the worst flags in the world comes from the state of Antwerp in Belgium. It’s a chess board on acid. The flag is made of 24 square pieces, in 4 rows and 6 columns. The pieces in the upper right and lower left corners of the flag are white, the neighbouring pieces are blue, yellow, red and white, respectively.
The flag of Nepal is the only national flag in the world that is not rectangular. The flag is a simplified combination of two single pennants. Its crimson red is the colour of the rhododendron, the country’s national flower. Red is also the sign of victory in war. The blue border is the colour of peace.
The official flag of the Dutch province of Friesland. It consists of four blue and three white diagonal stripes; in the white stripes are a total of seven red pompeblêden, leaves of the yellow water-lily, that may remind one of hearts, but according to the official instructions “should not be heart-shaped”.
North Caucasian Emirate Flag
A small republic for just six months during the Russian Civil War of 1917-22, the North Caucasian Emirate’s flag featured this cutesy (and presumably unintended) smiley face.
West African Flag
This unusual flag is commonly (and wrongly) attributed to the Benin Empire. It is one of four currently held at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich near London. There is some uncertainty about the exact origin of the flag, and whether it came from Benin itself or was used by the forces of its Itsekiri allies.
The flag of the United States territory of Guam was adopted on February 9, 1948. The territorial flag is dark blue with a narrow red border on all sides (border was a later addition). In the centre of the flag is the coat of arms; an almond shaped emblem, which depicts a proa sailing in Agana Bay near Hagåtña, and GUAM coloured in red letters.
The Sicilian flag bears three legs in the shape of a triskelion which is supposed to represent the three corners of the island. The flag was first adopted in 1282 and therefore is thought to predate the similar design of the Isle of Man’s flag.
The flag of Swaziland was adopted on October 6, 1968 after Swaziland gained independence from Britain on September 6, 1968. The flag is based on the military flag given by King Sobhuza II to the Swazi Pioneer Corps in 1941 to remind them of the nation’s military traditions.
Bermuda’s flag bears the British red ensign and a coat of arms that shows the 17th century ship Sea Venture that was deliberately crashed by Admiral George Somers in a bad storm. But the flag also bears an ironic resemblance to the Atlantic island’s reputation for being a hotspot for lost ocean vessels and aeroplanes.
U.S. Virgin Islands Flag
The current flag of the U.S. Virgin Islands was officially adopted in 1921. As an unincorporated territory of the United States, the island’s flag features parts of the U.S. seal. One eagle claw holds three arrows, representative of the three major islands, while the other claw holds an olive branch.
The flag of Kyrgyzstan was adopted on 3 March 1992 by the Supreme Council of Kyrgyzstan. It consists of a red field with a yellow sun in the center having 40 uniformly spaced rays.
Northern Marianas Islands Flag
The flag of the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands was adopted in July 1985, by the Second Northern Marianas Constitution. The NMI flag was originally designed by Taga during the year 1985.
Jolly Roger Flag
The Jolly Roger is the name given to any of various flags flown to identify a ship’s crew as pirates. The flag most usually identified as the Jolly Roger today is the skull and crossbones, a flag consisting of a human skull above two long bones, set in an x-mark arrangement on a black field.
The Nazi flag is probably the most controversial flag in man’s history. It is even banned in a number of countries today. The flag was designed by Hitler himself, who thought it was necessary to use the same colours as Imperial Germany.
