Little Difference

Flags that look similar, look alike - and yes, I'm throwing shade at China here

...especially if you don't support totalitarian human rights abusers!


  1. Indonesia or Monaco?
    New Zealand or Australia?
    Cuba or Puerto Rico?
    ...I could go on :D

    By the way, Luxembourg is supposed to be a slightly lighter shade of blue than Netherlands; same with Romania and Chad, respectively.

  2. Romania? Or Chad? Romania? No, that's Chad... Romania? I'm pretty sure that's Chad...

  3. The union jack in its normal position or in "distress signal" position? ... nobody notices the difference anyway... ;)

  4. Am I the only one who wonders why Chad and Romania have the exact same flag?

    What is the reason anyway? Romania never had any major foreign excursions- they didn't even have a small empire- there was none!

    Please tell me if you know- it's driving me crazy!

    1. Coincidence, maybe?
      (Now I'm imagining a quarrel between them, like two girls wanting to wear the same dress to a prom:
      "Let's take this design for our flag, I like it"
      "Hey, that's our flag, we had it first!"
      "But the colours are so pretty... can't we share?... I'm sure nobody will even notice!")

    2. "Great, now somebody has to go home and change and it's not going to be me!"

    3. No, it's a different colour! You see, the flag of Chad is cobalt blue, and the flag of Romania is indigo blue! Isn't it obvious?

    4. This is a task for Dr Sheldon Cooper :)

  5. Replies
    1. Agreed. The Chinese government, on the other hand...

  6. You know how I tell the difference between the German flag and the Belgian flag? I remember that the German flag has horizontal stripes, just like the German Augustus Gloop's shirt!
