Somehow "best in the world" would be a bit biased in a spanish only newspaper

Brazil has the most different flag.
No one else has a flag that is similar.
They should be commended.
Most European flags are kind of boring with three strips. Not real original.
Next to Brazil, I'd say the US is next most different.
Although, our flag looks suspiciously like the East India company's flag. Google it, it's surprising.

Mexico Wins Most Beautiful Flag in the World Contest


On July 7, 2008, Mexico's Flag was voted the Most Beautiful Flag in the World in an Internet contest held by the Spanish Newspaper 20 Minutos, with the flags of Peru and Guatemala coming in at second and third places.

The Mexican flag, one of the three patriotic symbols of this Latin American country, scored 900,286 points, an impressive lead over second place winner Peru at 339,771 points and Guatemala's score of 271,449 points.

The current flag of Mexico, which was adopted by decree on September 16th 1968, is divided into three vertical stripes of red, white and green. Each color has a different meaning: green representing hope, white for unity and red symbolizing the blood that was shed during the battles for Independence.

In the center of the white stripe is the National Shield, an eagle perched on a nopal cactus that emerges from a lake, with wings that are ready for battle and a snake in its beak.

In this contest, the flag of Mexico was competing against the flags of Guatemala, Uruguay, Argentina, Spain, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, Brazil and Israel, among others.

The Mexican flag took an early lead, moving into first place by the middle of the previous month, which left the other countries with little chance of winning the competition

Re: Mexico Wins Most Beautiful Flag in the World Contest
hahahaha come on people just admit it, the Mexican flag truly IS the most beautiful flag in the world, and its not the same as italy, The Flag of Mexico (Spanish: Bandera de México) is a vertical tricolor of green, white, and red with the national coat of arms charged in the center of the white stripe. While the meaning of the colors has changed over time, these three colors were adopted by Mexico following independence from Spain during the country's War of Independence, and subsequent First Mexican Empire. The current flag was adopted in 1968, but the overall design has been used since 1821, when the First National Flag was created. The current law of national symbols, Law on the National Arms, Flag, and Anthem, that governs the use of the national flag has been in place since 1984.

At the time of the flag's adoption, the Italian tricolor was not in use: the flag now contains the coat of arms, in order to distinguish it from that of Italy. Red, white, and green are the colors of the national liberation army in Mexico. The central emblem is the Aztec pictogram for Tenochtitlan (now Mexico City), the center of their empire. It recalls the legend that inspired the Aztecs to settle on what was originally a lake-island. The form of the coat of arms was most recently revised in 1968. Aztec legend held that they should found their city on the spot where they saw an eagle on a nopal, eating a snake. Ribbon in the national colors are at the bottom of the coat of arms. Throughout history, the flag has changed four times, as the design of the coat of arms and the length-width ratios of the flag have been modified. However, the coat of arms has had the same features throughout: an eagle, holding a serpent in its talon, is perched on top of a prickly pear cactus; the cactus is situated on a rock that rises above a lake. The coat of arms is derived from an Aztec legend that their gods told them to build a city where they spot an eagle and a serpent, which is now Mexico City. The current national flag, the Fourth National Flag, is also used as the Mexican naval ensign by ships registered in Mexico. peace

A good flag is judged by its ability to be recognized easily, particularly on the battlefield and at long range. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

I have to give the Mexican flag credit, it is quite handsome.

Canadian flag is quite nice in regard to being recognized easily.

Brazil and US are fairly garish, but are identifiable and have a certain unique character.

The old Soviet flag is not that identifiable at a distance, but put forth a sense of power, which was it's real purpose. The current Russian flag is sorely lacking (but at least they kept the world's best national anthem).

A very handsome flag is the old Imperial German Naval Ensign.

The Canadian flag is not beautiful in the traditional sense. Most two-color flags are not. But the uniqueness of the Maple Leaf makes up for that. The Canadian flag seems to represent its country well, you get a sense of the country from the flag.
