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?

I think maybe the Welsh, but I didn't include it because Wales is not an independent country.

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:

I ended up with Norway as a representative of the Nordic countries, but I could just as well have picked Iceland.

120px-Flag_of_Canada.svg.png


it's like the figure-ground illusion, usually done with a vase:
180px-Facevase.JPG


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.

it's like the illusion with the vase & two faces, 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.
It represents english and french canadians arguing over the country!
