6. Palau – Blue Background with a Yellow Disc

Palau Flag

Palau, a tiny Pacific island, also boasts of a flag with a disc in its center. This yellow disc represents the moon, a symbol of peace, love and tranquility. The blue, which most assume to be a symbol of the ocean, is actually representational of the transition from subjugation to independence.


7. Israel – White Background with Blue Star of David

Israel Flag

One of the simplest but evocative flags in the world is the Israeli flag. It is based on the ‘talit’ an ancient Jewish prayer shawl, with the Star of David imprinted in the center. The white background with the blue stripes above and below, has been the pattern on a prayer shawl for centuries.


8. Finland – White with Blue Cross

Finland  Flag

Another very simple but striking flag is the flag of Finland which has a Nordic blue cross on a pristine white background. Using a color combination of blue – as the color of it’s many lakes and seas, and white – the colour of the snow that covers most of the country, this combination has been on their symbols and flags for centuries.


9. Somalia – Blue with White Star

Somalia Flag

Another blue and white combination – but in this flag we have a white star on a blue background. The five cornered star represents the five regions in the Horn of Africa, which form the country of Somalia.


1o. Micronesia – Blue and White Circle of Stars

Micronesia  Flag

In this flag, the blue represents the ocean, and the simple four stars, placed like the points of a compass, represent the four island groups which are a part of the Micronesia federation.
