It cannot really be termed to be a country, but it does represent a conglomerate of nations, and is universally recognized as a flag of peace and co-operation. It consists of the official emblem of the organization in white on a light blue background. Blue was chosen as an antithesis to ‘red’ the color of war.


2. Libya – Simple Green

Libya Flag

Libya’s flag is the only flag in the world which is of only one color and has no other insignia or emblem or color on it. Green is the national color of Libya and is also the color that represents Islam.


3. Indonesia – White and Red
