If you hover over a flag, a hint with the country name will be shown. By clicking on a flag you'll be moved to the detailed information about the country.|
The national flag is one of the national symbols along with the state coat of arms, anthem, and motto. It is the most prominent symbol that is used more often than the others. This is connected with the aspect of visualization, distinguishableness and the simplicity of its production.
The word "flag" is derived from the Dutch "vlag". The word means a panel of regular geometric shape (mostly rectangular, less often – square or triangle). The cloth is specially decorated with one or more colors. Since the flag is simple and the colors it is decorated with are limited in number, the similarities are inevitable. Even at the state level one can find identical flags (for example, Monaco and Indonesia), because of what the two sides are still arguing, providing evidence of "who was the first."
The site not only presents the flags of all the countries, but also gives an opportunity to test your knowledge with the Test on flags. You can choose from three difficulties: low, medium and high.
