Ever wondered why certain countries have certain colors in their flags, why it has certain symbols and what are the different patterns?
We started digging through, checking a Wikipedia article on this topic.
This was a good start but we wanted to go deeper so we manually started eye balling each flag to understand the patterns and symbols.
We needed to figure out what we can extract from the flags and there were three prominent elements.
Our task was then to go through each flag and note down all the distinct colors, prominent patterns and symbols.
Then we ran some analysis on the collected data and published into a finished dashboard
The final output of the analysis gives us answers to questions like
For this research, we manually eye-balled each country flag and tried to decipher the geometrical patterns and symbols within it.
Here is the full compiled dataset (on Google doc).
