252 World Flags

[EDIT]** Added South Sudan, country formed on 9 July 2011.
[EDIT2]** Changed Libya's flag to represent changes as of 1 November 2011.

Its finally finished. This deviation was started almost exactly 1 year ago. Its original form was a tribute to the nations that had made it into the world cup. Those 32 flags took too long that the deviation was no longer current. So, it turned into an attempt to create every flag in the world. A daunting task to be sure.

1 year of intermittent work later and this is the result. All 251 flags of the world, both national and territorial. Left out are international organizations (EU, Olympics, Sami...) and any territories whose flag is identical to their parent country (mostly France and Australia).

As it turns out, most flags are unique in their aspect ratio. However when flown together, the international standard is 5:3. Accordingly, these flags are 50x29 (odd numbered height made it easier to center objects).

For the comprehensive list, see . That is the list i used. I'm about 95% sure i didn't miss one.

Anyone who sees this is welcome to use these for icons, deviations, etc. is allowed to. Please credit me or post here first.

This is the animated version.

Roadkill-Sarny's avatar
Oh yeah, I can see it there. Mind you, it IS a possibility that I just missed it on the animation.
Aitheras's avatar
Its been so long since I made this, i can't even remember how i did most of it.

I god, I have moments like that. One of the joys of life. xD

Fantastic work. Thank you!

I wanted to make the Australian flag in pixel art form, but it was proving really difficult to get it looking right. I'd like to use it for an icon, if that's alright.

very nice ^_^ congratulations on finishing.
Did you draw each flag by hand or shrink them
either way this seems like so much work.
Aitheras's avatar
I didn't shrink them at all. I made them all that small to begin with.

Awesome! That must have been so hard.
