18 National Flags Made From Food

Written by

ITALY – Basil, pasta, tomatoes



These delicious flags were designed for the Sydney International Food Festival by the advertising agency WHYBINTBWA. It’s a fantastic concept that creates a nation’s flag from the food associated with the country. Now many of you will likely disagree with some of the foods selected to symbolize a particular country, but keep in mind it can be challenging to not only use food that represents the country but also works with the actual design of the flag (e.g., starfruit for stars). And it’s for fun! Don’t take it too seriously 🙂

The Sifter was not able to identify all of the ingredients, so please help label the missing ones! And let us know in the comments which flags you would add and what foods it would be made of! I think for Canada, it would have to be two giant strips of peameal bacon for the red stripes and a maple leaf made out of maple syrup! Mmmm mayple syrup.
