Funny Flags - Yaroslavl - Oblast - Russia - Lazer Horse

My last post about flags caused some controversy, so I need to reconfirm my stance: I know that to some people, flags are symbols of imperialism and even racism. This is undoubtedly true.

But we mustn’t blame the flag for that. It is the flag waver that is to blame.

Flags certainly can be misused and misrepresented. Here, I ask you to simply enjoy the designs.


This tropical Caribbean island is a veritable garden of Eden, so, naturally, they’ve chosen to include some wildlife.

This is a Sisserou Parrot or Imperial Amazon, their national bird. Sadly, They are scarce due to competition with red-necked Amazon owls, natural disasters, and plantation expansion. I hope they’re going to be OK.

Funny Flags - Dominica

Drnis – Croatia

It’s a bloke pointing at a wound on his leg and a dog with bread in its mouth. The fine looking bearded gent is St Roch.

He was banished to a wood and only survived because a dog licked his wounds better.

National Syndical American Falangist Party

Here’s a flag of dubious origin that’s pleasing on the eye. It’s a flag for an American group based on Spanish fascist ideology. So, yeah, ignore that and enjoy the patterns.

Tamil Eelam

This flag isn’t for a country, an area, or an organisation, but for the Aymara people. The Aymara hail from Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, and Chile. The origins are unclear, but it looks a lot more modern than it probably is.
