A Complete List of National Flags of all Countries in Alphabetical Order

It is quite humbling when one realizes how many different nations are spread across the globe. Even more amazing are the flags that represent each one of them. This article provides a list of flags of all these countries of the world, in alphabetical order, to curb the curiosity bug in you.

Study of Flags

The term, vexillology, derived from the Greek words vexillum (flag), and logia (study), scientifically speaking, means ‘the study of the history, representation, and the application of flags’.

Did You Know ?

The Flags of the World website is the largest internet resource that not only publishes information about these flags but also distributes it periodically.

The International Federation of Vexillological Associations (FIAV) maintains a database of different world flags.

One cannot help but marvel at the variety and diversity in the national flags of these various countries. However, on further inspection, a similarity in pattern and color can be noticed in flags of certain groups of countries. In fact, a number of events of national importance inspire the design of each flag.

Ethiopia the Great African Leader

If you notice closely, a lot of African nations have a unique distribution of the Rasta colors of red, green, and yellow in their respective flags. Ethiopia was one of the first African countries to not only put up a resistance to European colonization but also succeeded at it. This nation stood out as an inspiring symbol of courage to other emerging African countries during the Pan African movement, and so, many of them adopted the colors of the Ethiopian national flag in their own flags.

Following the Footsteps of Ethiopia

On similar lines, a number of Arab countries in the Middle East have modeled their flags after the official flag of the Arab Revolt and the Arab Liberation Flag.

The above showcase of flags of the nations of the world, in alphabetical order covers every country’s flag, except a few disputed territories, and individual federal subjects of Russia. If you are a flag enthusiast, your study of this interesting subject should not end here, because national flags are just one of the many applications of flags. There are state flags, organizational flags, military flags, war flags, religious flags, and even special flags that are used at sea.

The flag has been recognized as a symbol of freedom in a number of songs by popular artists all over the world. The unforgettable lyrics of Wavin’ Flag by Somali-Canadian artist, K’naan, which was originally written honoring the aspiration of freedom of the Somali people, is a heartfelt dedication to flags, a metaphor for liberty;

When I get older I will be stronger
They’ll call me ‘Freedom’ just like a wavin’ flag
