[EDIT]** Added South Sudan, country formed on 9 July 2011.
[EDIT2]** Changed Libya's Flag to reflect 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 Those 32 flags took too long that the deviation was no longer current.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 www.flags.net [link] 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 all of the flags non animated.

You did an excellent work. What about the historical flags? 👍👍👍

It has passed long time since you released but I wanted to give you my thanks, I am working on a game with Unity that will be released pretty soon anyway thank you.

May I please use the American, Polish, and El Salvador flags on my profile? I'd like to upload them to my scraps so I can use the individual thumbs WITH credit to you of course AND linking back to here AND mentioning your username so you can see~

Hi, if you don't mind, I'm gonna use this for a poster to promote an exchange program in my college :)
Aitheras's avatar
Go ahead!

If you could upload a picture of the poster, that'd be fantastic - but you don't have to. I just like to see where my stuff goes.

Also, as the comments here say, it isn't entirely accurate. Some flags haven't been updated to reflect the changes.

Hey there,

Lybia is not really just green ;)

Don't really think it matters but Zambia and Zimbabwe are swapped. 
Great work though. ^^
Aitheras's avatar
Thanks. One of these days i'll get around to fixing it - there's a list of mistakes piling up, not to mention flag changes. Glad you liked it, it took quite a long time to finish. :D
Snowy-kun's avatar
I can tell it took a while. It's okay though ^^ not the end of the world if you don't change it to perfection. :)

Don't forget Sealand and GLRCA
Aitheras's avatar
I'm not sure I know what GLRCA is.

At the time i didn't make Sealand because the list i was using didn't recognize it as an independent entity. I may go add at some point.

Colombia's flag is wrong. Correct order (Top-down) is: Yellow, blue and red with same size. Thanks
Aitheras's avatar
So it is O.o wonder how that one slipped through.

I'll get on it ~although the file is on my old computer.
Easatae's avatar
How did you make all of them?
Aitheras's avatar
Actually, [link] is more representative of how i made it. I made them one by one in GIMP on top of each other (as different layers). That way i could compare different features.

:icony-u-noplz: Y U NO UPDATE LIBYA?
Aitheras's avatar
Because I didn't know it changed.
I'll get right on that.
