The World’s Most Common Flag Colors, in Infographic Form

Flickrer and infographic maven stevefaeembra has come up with a nifty graphical representation for the world’s most common flag colors by country.

Naturally, it involves a geeky, techy workaround: he went over all of the large flag images in the CIA World Factbook with a Python script, which tallied the number of pixels of each color.

His caveats: “- this includes territories, not just ‘countries’ as you might understand them.
– images weren’t resized to a standard size.”
