Flags of the World by Color Usage

Flags of the World by Color Usage



Shahee Ilyas has lots of fun and interesting projects on his site. One I found particularly interesting was a breakdown of all the flag colors in the world and how much each color is used in each flag.

With his permission here they are:

Each sector the pie-chart is proportional to the area of the color on the respective flag

All Flag Colors Combined

All Flags Colors
Using a list of countries generated by The World Factbook database, flags of countries fetched from Wikipedia (as of 26th May 2007) are analyzed by a custom made python script to calculate the proportions of colors on each of them. That is then translated on to a piechart using another python script. The proportions of colors on all unique flags are used to finally generate a piechart of proportions of colors for all the flags combined. (note: colors making up less than 1% may not appear)

this would have come in handy for me the other day! at my friends college graduation there were flags from quite a few countries lining the hill they walked down and my friends brother and I were trying to name them all. See I knew colourlovers would come in handy for something other than just strictly colors. thanks for making this!
