What do you think? Here's my list:
I agree with your top spot
Wait, this should go in the vexillology forum. By the way...

I'm a USian but I must admit having always liked the look of the Union Jack. I used to doodle it in school when I was a child.
If the Bhutan dragon and the Welsh dragon had a fight, who would win?
but the proper shape is like http://xnepali.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2007/11/national_flag_of_nepal.jpg [Broken]
I think maybe the Welsh, but I didn't include it because Wales is not an independent country.
I've always liked Kenya's and one of my other favs (I THINK) is Swaziland.
Ah, didn't see that, yeah, I stand by Swaziland's...
Well anyways, here's Kenya's since we're talking about it:
doesn't anybody like Libya's? That one's pretty cool! :tongue2: (except Canada's is cooler) Actually the first one I thought of even before I clicked on this thread was Wales' (already posted). Is Canada's the only one with an optical illusion built in though?
No, the coolest is the Isle of Man's flag:
Come on, three (3) legs. How cool is that!? From the land of the tailless cats.
Manx people just got EVEN WEIRDER to me....
Man is fantastic, and it would definitely included it if it were an independent coutry. I like Kenya too.
I can't see any...
I ended up with Norway as a representative of the Nordic countries, but I could just as well have picked Iceland.
it's like the figure-ground illusion, usually done with a vase:
except there's a maple leaf instead of a vase. the zigzag of the maple leaf makes a brow, eyes, nose, upper & lower lip & mouth on each side. & they're also on a 45 degree angle, unlike the vase llusion.
Ooh, i see it, i think. Look at the top point of the leaf thats how i see it...
It represents english and french canadians arguing over the country!
