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.

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)
