World Flags Large by Aitheras World Flags Large by Aitheras
**Please click for full view**

[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 Those 32 flags took too long that the deviation was no longer current.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.
See the animated version here: [link]

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.

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

Don't forget Sealand and GLRCA

Aitheras Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
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.

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.

The Principality of Sealand, the world's smallest micronation, seems to be missing. This is what the flag looks like, and a little info on it. [link]
Reply
:iconaitheras:
Aitheras Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks for the notice. I may get around to putting it on - i'm kinda swamped with schoolwork right now.

I can, however, explain why it isn't. While it may be considered a micronation, Sealand is (apparently) currently unrecognized as sovereign by any sovereign state. Thus, my sources passed it over in collecting flags. If i'd known during my first go, i prolly would have put it on.

Again, thanks, i'll keep it in mind.

Ok, and I understand that. I didn't know about Sealand until my friends showed me the anime show Hetalia. Not even my Social Studies teacher knows about Sealand. I thought it was funny when I walked into class the first day, and knew more countries flags than she did.
