What are the prettiest Flags?

With the recent Olympics we saw the parade of the flags of all the countries.

What are the prettiest flags in the world, country, state, or others, based on aesthetics and not nationalistic feelings?

Here is one of my favorite, the flag of Kazakhstan.

I like this cheerful one too, the flag of Macedonia. It reminds me of the beautiful Japanese World War II Navy and Air Force flag, unfortunately with its ugly connotations.

The Albanian flag is quite nice. Simple with color, rich with meaning.

She may not be the prettiest flag but she is the sweetest: the vexillologically vexing flexing flag of victory.

@mark noble,
Sometimes you've got to put that critical part of your mind aside and just relax and take in all the beauty, otherwise life is pretty bleak.

Nature is beautiful, but it's also horrific. If you can accept both of them, somehow, then life becomes sublime. That's religion, not this **** that's been pounded in our heads..

The French, of course, have to do everything with great style including the flag. The flag itself is nothing special, but in this video they spread it all over the sky.

@coluber2001,
You mean - 'Sometimes I've got to access reality from your perspective - So as to repair my unfettered and misaligned interpretation of an, otherwise, delusional reality - I, seemingly, possess?

One Man's shallow, is another Man's deep (Causal-relativity 'emo')
Your view is conditional to your 'spacial' location.
Only 'You' occupy said 'location'.
ONLY 'YOU' have said view/reality.
I understand your (primitive) dualism - and encourage its progression.
But - Noone else (Anywhere) shares your reality (A similar one, indeed) - But 'Marmite, sprout soup and ivory-earrings' have alternating 'labels' from alternating relative observation points/locations.

You appear to be 'preaching', btw.
Flags are, fundamentally, divisive.
They 'SEPERATE' that which worships (Works For) the meaning thereunder. (therein) - and that, that doesn't.

I bow to NO flag, nation, race, form, colour.

One of the most beautiful flags, the Mexican flag. Depicted is a Mexican golden eagle with a rattlesnake in its beak and perched on a nopal or prickly pear cactus. Legend has it that the wandering Aztec tribes had a vision of one of their gods named Huitzilopochtli who told them to build a city where they see an eagle perched on a cactus with a snake in its beak. The city of Tenochtitlan was founded in 1325 on an island in Lake Texcoco.

The flag of Bangladesh very similar to the Japanese flag but with different colors.

Commuter train in Bangladesh, possibly during a festival. Notice the Bangladesh flags flying.

Israeli flag-- with Solomon's Seal

"The six-branched star is a combination of two reversed triangles pointing upwards and downwards and represents the union of the divine and human natures. Therefore, it is not surprising to find such a symbol in the three religions and hermetism."

The Gadsden Flag is also know as the Don't tread on me flag. This flag was first used by Commodore Esek Hopkins, the first Commander in Chief of the New Continental Fleet, when his ships put to sea for the first time in February, 1776.

It's hard to beat the Union Jack for sheer beauty in a flag.

The Lebanon flag depicts the Lebanon Cedar--Cedrus libani. The white stripe is twice the width of the red stripe.
