List of Countries

The following is the abbreviated list of countries. They are listed alphabetically, so once all the countries starting with a particular letter filled up, I've removed it, just to make things a little cleaner and neater.

If you would like the more detailed list, and perhaps reasons why some nations are on this list while others are not, along with images of the flags, go here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Countries

If the country you would like to do has a name next to it then it has been claimed already. Please review the list again and find another that does not have a name.

To sign up, please scroll down to the bottom of this post, where you will find a Comment/Leave Comment button. Click on "Leave Comment," then leave your name and the country you would like to create a flag for.

The following are the only flags left unclaimed:

Ascension Island

Brunei

Greece

Northern Mariana Islands

  11. Since we're going to split up the UK, and since they're the same colors, I'm going to take the two flags of my ancestors: England and Monaco. (Interestingly, my third ancestral home, Denmark, is ALSO red and white, but has sadly already been claimed.)

  42. I'd like to claim Norway and Sweden please! And personally, I'd prefer Doctors without Borders, but I doubt you'll find a single charity that makes everybody happy. :) A sad observation, that is!
    Can I suggest you send out reminder emails, if it's not too much trouble? Or maybe set up a countdown page people can link to?

    P.S. And I love the idea of Doctors without Borders!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I would like to claim Aruba. My Ravelry id is Brvfan. My real name is Debby.

    I recommend Doctors without Borders

  53. hey, CynthiaRose on Ravelry. I'd like Tajikistan.

  63. I scanned through the list of comments and didn't see anyone claiming this one yet, but I'll volunteer for New Zealand. It's top on my list of places I really want to visit (and all the countries my relatives came from are already taken).

    I'm Jenipurr on Ravelry, by the way.

    ReplyDelete
  64. This is a wonderful idea and I hope you get TOP TOP marks for your project. I would like to do St Kitts and Nevis. I lived there for a few months when I was young, and still hanker after it.

    Second point, I think Doctors without Borders would also be better, since some countries only use the Red Crescent organisation and others the Mogan David. The Red Cross, as far as I understand it, is only universal in Christian countries. I think Doctors Without Borders is truly universal.

  82. I'd like to claim Tonga and Netherlands Antilles in addition to the Dominican Republic flag which I'm already working on.

    I hope it's OK if the colors of the yarn are not exactly the shade of the flags I see on the world flag database? I bought red, white and navy yarn and now I'm afraid the colors on the website look much brighter.

If so, I'd also like to add Columbia, Mali, Armenia, S. Ossetta, and Togo. If that's too many, just tell me which ones I can do - you pick! I'm really excited to see how this turns out.

    Thanks,

  110. Hi,
    I love your idea. Could I do Australia's Aboriginal Flag?
    http://www.ausflag.com.au/flags/ab.html
    You may be aware of the injustices and prejudice experienced by Indigenous Australians and I was just thinking perhaps a peace quilt would be a good place to include their flag.

    ReplyDelete
  111. This is a fantastic idea. I'd like to do Oman's flag if possible, as it's the only country left on the list that I've been in.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Saint Pierre and Miquelon and Saint Barthelemy both use the French flag. Had you noticed that? Would that cause any confusion on your main flag.

    ReplyDelete
  113. I'd also like to make the flags for Maldives, Saint Vincent & the Grenadines, the Solomon Islands, and Uzbekistan.

    These flags are seriously addicting.

  130. This is an interesting and worthwhile project. Is there a deadline? As for the "straight pride" question, although many would disagree, I've always felt that the rainbow stood for diversity, which includes people who practice alternative ways of loving, as well as those who are "straight but not narrow." That really fits with the concept of the rainbow including the full gamut of colours.
