National Stereotype Flags

If asked to sum up Brazil's culture in 3 words, I think we'd all go for 'Sunshine, Carnival and Football', with the possible addition of 'Beach Volleyball players'.

So designer Kirill Zaytsev has done just that for a host of countries, using national stereotypes - both words and images - to reimagine their national flags.

The results are clever and striking, although we don't think the Jordan tourist board will be rushing to replace their current insignia any time soon. Sweden on the other hand...
