Clever Representations Of Country Flags Based On Their Common Icons And Sayings
By Louise Jane Cher, 28 Oct 2015
The “Brazilian wax”, “guinea pig” and “french kiss” are some common terms we use, that have somehow come to represent the countries associated with them.
Russian graphic designer Kirill Zaytsev has created a clever series called ‘Flagsters 2.0’, pairing country flags with each country’s common icon.
Experimenting with the visual elements and colors of each flag, he creates minimalist, concise symbols that reflect these stereotypes.
Through this series, Zaytsev wanted to show that it was “naive to think that countries with all of their complex histories, cultures and subtleties can also be narrowed and reduced to a handful of verbal cliche and a colorful image”.
Scroll down to see his clever creations, and head here for more.
