The World's Flags Given Letter Grades

After browsing a friends Atlas one day, Josh Parsons decided that many flags of the world were of varying design quality. He set out to score every national flag, assigning each a letter grade. You can browse the results of his study alphabetically by country name, or by letter grade given.

So what flag scored the highest? Gambia. "Great design and colour choice," says Josh. "Also represents the geography of the country (without being a map)." The Northern Mariana Islands (pictured) rounds out the bottom of the barrell with an overall score of 2 out of 100. "[It] appears to have been constructed from clip art. Truly awful."

Check out Josh's website to see how your country scored.
