What flag do you consider to be the most beautiful? Please try to forget for a while your natural patriotic bias and sincere feelings for your own national flag. I'm asking about the graphic or let's say artistic aspect of the design.

My vote would be:

1. South Africa http://flagspot.net/flags/za.html

2. South Korea http://flagspot.net/flags/kr.html

3. United Kingdom http://flagspot.net/flags/gb.html
I really like the idea of how to make 4 national flags blend into one.

Kirkie,

I know. But I just had to mention it because of all the "anti-americanism" we got in here.  Big grin

By the way, I have been in Scotland twice. And every time I have forgot to ask What Ecosse means. Is that Scotland or what?

The Filipino flag:
http://www.cia.gov/cia/publications/factbook/flags/rp-flag.html

It has some symbolism as well, besides just looking good:

The twelve rays of the sun symbolise the first twelve provinces, which rebelled against the Spanish during the 19th century. The 3 stars symbolise the three main regions of the country (Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao). Blue stands for peace and red for war. Normaly the flag is flown with the blue stripe up, but in case of war it is reversed.

On a historical note, various alternatives were suggested before the current design for the Union Flag (it's only a Union Jack on a ship) was adopted, as shown in the link:
