    I was bored the other day so i did this in about 1-2 hours. I skept some countries and Islands and the canadian maple looks dumb

    I thought Greenland and Alaska should have its own flag because it is almost like a country.


    So...what do ya think?

    Seems everyone's too afraid to use purple, pink, or gray in their flags! And only Ireland, India, and the Ivory Coast were man enough to use orange!

    omg I wish I had that much time on my hands. Really nice map though :goodjob:

    Can't help but notice that much of the central america is uncoloured. I mean, you even got the Cape Verde coloured but Cuba is left gray.

    Very creative! :goodjob: (yeah, the Maple Leaf looks a bit lumpy ;))

    If more countries used purple, pink, grey, or orange, there would have to be more than five Olympic rings. :lol:

    After doing this i quite sick of Red....... and middle eastern countries really like green.

    The Characters in the Saudi flag are real but there are three missing characters as it is too large

    Britain is barely big enough for one flag. :p

    Anyway, nice work! I like your flag concepts for Greenland and Alaska.

    Hey I like it!! :D

    (but you could have made Romania and Moldavia a single entity on the map, as we use the same flag ;))
