    It's colourful, and I like stars. But I can't help but think I've seen a similar flag somewhere else... not the most original flag. 6/10


    Libya

    Man, they really went to town on this one didn't they? I've heard less is more, but I think they took it a bit too literally in this case. Green is always nice though. 4/10


    Bosnia and Herzegovina

    [image=http://www.crwflags.com/fotw/images/b/ba.gif]

    Bold, striking colours and simple shapes. Looks a bit like a corporate logo though, which is probably the look they were going for. *cough*EU*cough* 7/10

    This flag is pretty cool.

    Ah yes, back when being seen on the battlefield was all the rage.

    Busy, but rich and powerful.

    8/10 for both.

    Please rate these two, but be VERY careful as to which you should rate higher... [face_skull]

    I've always felt Libya should get props for choosing the flag that is easiest to mass manufacture, though.

    Slovakia

    [image=http://www.mapsofworld.com/images/world-countries-flags/slovakia-flag.gif]

    Simple, clean colours. I've always been a fan of the off-centre device, in this case a shield, which also has the awesome two barred cross in it. 8/10

    Slovenia

    [image=http://flagsandanthems.com/media/flags/flag-slovenia.gif]

    Similar colours, again an off-centre device, but why is it proped up so high? That's a step too far. Nice stars though. 7.5/10

    Angola

    [image=http://www.internationalimagegallery.com/angola/angola_flag.jpg]

    It's striking, but a little scary. To copy the hammer and sickle with a machete is a little disturbing. 5/10

    The Jolly Roger

    [image=http://blindkat.hegewisch.net/pirates/jacks/rackham.gif]

    An instant classic. The use of black with bone white is unmistakable at any distance. 9/10

    My favorite incarnation of the flag. Got one in my room back home.

    And you should have a tournament pitting all the variations of cross flags against each other. England, Scotland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Iceland, etc.

    Gay Pride Flag

    [image=http://www.crwflags.com/fotw/images/s/sex-rb.gif]

    It's colourful, that's for sure. It reminds me of the 80s for some reason, not sure if that's good or bad. Unfortunately it breaks one of the basic rules of flag design - too many colours. 6/10.

    Oh! I need to know which is better:

    [image=http://img251.imageshack.us/img251/3239/istockphoto5020356flago.jpg]

    Ivory Coast Flag (or maybe Irish Flag)

    [image=http://img697.imageshack.us/img697/5070/flag2393311.jpg]

    Irish Flag (or maybe Ivory Coast Flag)

    Cote d'Ivoire

    [image=http://www.crwflags.com/fotw/images/c/ci.gif]

    The classic tricolore design, with simple earthy colours. It doesn't instantly hit you in the face, but at least it doesn't offend. 6/10

    Ireland

    [image=http://www.crwflags.com/fotw/images/i/ie.gif]

    Another tricolour with similar colours, but you know what's different? Its 1:2 ratio is more pleasing to my eye. 7/10

    Bennington 13-star flag

    [image=http://www.crwflags.com/fotw/images/u/us-1777a.gif]

    The early Stars and Stripes with a difference, it looks good close up, and maintains its look from a distance. Not sure about the stripes starting with white though, I prefer red at the top. 7/10

    What the hell is going on here? My head hurts just looking at this thing. The waves are enough, but then they add a tree and a crown? It's crazy. 2/10

    Spain

    [image=http://www.crwflags.com/fotw/images/e/es.gif]

    I love the colours, and the 1:2:1 ratio of the bars gives it a unique look. The shield's nice, but I prefer the non-shielded version. 8/10

    It was an objective and reasoned conclusion. Honest. [face_whistling]
