Please vote for the best flag. The top one will be moving on to the next round. This is NOT a vote for which country is "better". We are strictly voting based on the aesthetics and the design of each flag, not taking into account any geopolitical issues. Below each flag you'll find a link to the Wikipedia article about that flag, if you're curious to find out more about its history and symbolism.

Saint Lucia
Funny, but I've just formulated one of my criteria for liking/disliking a particular flag (never thought of it before) - I dislike aggressive-looking creatures on a flag.

I think I may vote for Albania for the rest of the tourney.

Bhutan is not really aggressive. A very cool flag.

Hmm, that dragon does look aggressive to me :lol: Maybe I am just too easily scared, I don't know.

And Albanian flag looks very menacing - I get shivers just by looking at it. It's a "strong" image, for sure, very impressive. But I definitely would not want to pin in to a wall in my room.

I know what you mean but I was deliberating between Bhutan and Albania. From a design perspective both are really great. I gave the edge to Bhutan to its unique diagonal design and of course that sweet Thunder Dragon!

Yeah, as always it comes down to what each of us means when we say that we 'like' something.
I am not a good judge of aesthetics/originality/etc. - so my opinion is mostly based on whether or not I would like to own something (clothes, tapestry, carpet, whatnot) with a flag's design.
Do I sound like a typical female? :lol:

Two flags I find aestheticly displeasing and dragonkart. Can't vote here lol.
