Some more good ones there - my favourite of that lot is the RoC flag.

Now, at the other end of the scale, what about everyone's least favourite flags? One of mine is the flag of American Samoa:

It wouldn't be a bad flag at all if it were flipped the other way around (so that the white edge was towards the hoist), but as it is, it just looks awkward. A basic rule of flag design is that any main symbols should be placed in the top left (the canton) or in the centre - not on the right (because they're then invisible when it's not windy).
You do realize if it's a two-sided flag it will have the bird on the other side, right?
Yes, the bird would change to the other side - but so would the flagpole. The whole point was that having the white edge away from the flagpole looks awkward. At least, to me, it does.

When I said that prominent symbols should be placed in the (top) left or in the centre, the assumption was that the flagpole was on the left.
