Why is it that red, white and blue are the colours of many flags but it is only associated with america.

They seem to be a tad more verbal than most others, thier patriotism can occasionally be... overzelous?

Was it like the same two guys designing all these flags?

The best ******* flag in the world (I'm not being nationalist, it is actually a very good flag... very unique (PD: the mexican flag (1824) is older than the italian flag (1861)))

Also, not to antagonise you but tricolour flags are actually kind of ugly, at least the vertical ones. And having a drawing in the middle of your flag just destroys the symbolism of the colours since you apparently lack the subtlety to let the colours speak for themselves or using a simpler design like a cross, a square or a star.

It is older than the actual version of the Italian flag. However the tricolour motif in Italy goes back 1976 and an eagle appears in the flag of the Kingdom of Italy in 1805. So no, it is not older and they took the Eagle too.

Well, the eagle is a mexican simbol since the 6th century...
User avatar #31 to #30 - thebestpieever (07/27/2013) [-]
There was no Mexico in the sixth century.
User avatar #32 to #31 - thewalruss (07/27/2013) [-]
There were the mexicas...

They didn't speak the language currently spoken in the region. They did not have the concept of clothing or property as commonly managed in the current region. Even the concept of flags or nations did not exist, going rather for city-states a la ancient Greece. By all means current Mexican culture is basically Spanish culture.

That's totally not true... I've lived in both countries...

I don't mean like traditions and stuff. I mean, in the way they see basic stuff like what iconography is and what a nation is supposed to be. The indians world view was lost long time a go when the Spanish took control of their part of America.

I meant 1796*

The Italian flag is from the napoleonic era (1798). In 1861 the king of Sardinia was named king of Italy and adoted the flag. So the country is younger but the flag is older.

It's because those 3 colours go great together.
