    Barra. A lot of the island flags are Nordic - understandable given the history of them. A lot of the place names on the island too are Norse in origin.

    The Olympic rings are coloured as such because at least one of the colours is featured on every national flag in the world.

    I have always had a thing for flags. I have small little flags from every country I have visited above a hutch in the front hallway.

    Celtic flags hit different mate. I wish the Irish was was more unique, but I guess the symbolism behind the tricolour is more important. For purely aesthetic purposes I'd love to see the Irish flagrreturn to thidms

    I agree I am not a major fan of the design of the Irish flag. I much prefer the one you have there as well. There has been some discussion that when reunification comes along that the flag of Ireland will be looked at with the potential for a change. I certainly would be fine with that. My personal preference so far from what I have seen in that type of scenario would be something like this, except just ditch the part where Ireland is written:

    Speaking of Celtic flags very often having unique designs the Breton flag fits in that category as well:
