Joe.co.uk, one of Britain's leading websites has recently placed the Croatian national flag on the TOP 10 world's best flags list. The British website which has millions of monthly readers and over 3.6 million fans on Facebook, has made a list of ''10 flags objectively the best in the world.''
Jonny Sharples, who describes himself as somebody who scored 197 out of 197 on Sporcle’s Flags of the World quiz on several occasions and a member of the Flag Institute, ranked the Croatian flag as the 9th best in the world.
“Think back to Euro ‘96 or France ‘98 and what comes to mind? Oh, you said Gazza’s goal against Scotland and Michael Owen scoring against Argentina. Awkward. I actually wanted you to remember Croatia’s amazing checkerboard kits, which were all thanks to the coat of arms on their flag. Actual flag fact: The shields on the coat of arms are taken from the ancient arms of Croatia, Dubrovnik, Dalmatia, Istria, and Slavonia”, Joe.co.uk described the national flag of Croatia.
The ''best in the world'' title went to Papua New Guinea. With the “flag fact” that the flag of Papua New Guinea was designed by a 15-year-old. The winner was followed by the Democratic Republic of Kongo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Marshall Islands, Vanuatu, Panama, Swaziland, Mozambique, Croatia and Cyprus which placed as the 10th on the world's best flags list published by Joe.co.uk.
