Recently, New Zealand held an online competition in order to find a new flag for the island nation. The competition saw some truly bizarre entries, and the end result was the country keeping their original flag. Creating a great flag can be harder than most people expect, which is why a lot of countries just use a couple of colors and stripes while symbolically attaching meaning to those elements. Some countries, however, try to be bold while creating their flags, and these can have quite a unique appeal. This list features 10 flags from around the world that have tried to use some strange details to make their flags stand out:
The flag of Wales uses a red dragon as its premier element, making it look like a flag from mythical times. The dragon is used to refer to King Cadwaladr, a man who ruled Wales in the 7th Century.
Can you tell that there is something different about this flag? Nepal is the only country in the world to use a flag that is non-quadrilateral.
