Welcome
to the World Flag Database

This site provides images and detailed information on the flags of every country in the world. I go to a lot of trouble to make sure that the flag images are up-to-date so that you can have accurate information.

Flagwaver - our first iPhone and iPad App!

At long last we have produced our first App for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. We have teamed up with Planetary Code in California to produce a simple but elegant App that allows you to 'fly' your favourite flag on your screen. It uses a combination of 3D rendering and accurate flag images to produce beautiful waving flags that you can interact with. The App comes with a good set of flags to get you started:

National Flags: Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Norway, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, UK (including England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland) and USA
International Flags: The European Union
Military Flags: US Army, US Air Force, US Navy (including the First Jack), US Marines and US Coast Guard
US State Flags: California and Ohio (to demonstrate a non-rectangular flag)

If the flag you want isn't in the basic set you can buy inexpensive add-on packs that include the national flags of all the world's countries. The level of detail even goes to the reverse of the flag, if you rotate the waving flag you will see the correct image on the back, even if that is a completely different design, such as Oregon's State Flag, or the inscription on Saudi Arabia.

You can download the App from the App Store, just click on the button on the right. Enjoy!
