List of Countries With The Similar Flags

This article contains a list of countries with similar flags. One of the most easily recognizable emblems of a country’s identity is its flag. People usually distinguish which flag belongs to which country, especially given the importance of flags during international athletic events like the World Cup and the Olympics.

Confusion can occur when two or more countries with similar flags are participants in an international event.

In no particular order, here are some of the countries that have similar flags all over the world.

Countries with similar flags

1. Guinea, Mali, and Senegal

Guinea and Mali’s flags have similarly colored stripes. Their colors differ somewhat, but the main distinction is the order. Guinea’s flag is essentially Mali’s but reversed (and vice versa).

Senegal’s flag is similar to Mali’s, however, it has a star in the center.
