    There are several national flags which are quite similar to one another - Australia and New Zealand, Chad and Romania, Colombia, Ecuador and Venezuela, Iceland and Norway, Indonesia and Monaco, Luxembourg and The Netherlands, Mali and Senegal, Russia, Slovakia and Slovenia... The flags of Denmark and England use the same colours, the former depicting a white cross on a red background and the latter depicting a red cross on a white background, not all that dissimilar, the two are some of the oldest national flags in existence - by many accounts Denmark has been flying its flag longer than any country. Essentially, there are similarities between many of the flags of nations in different parts of the world - many African and Caribbean and Commonwealth flags are similar. When selecting a flag, you want something immediately recognisable, that sometimes takes priority over being distinct. How many flags are vertical or horizontal tricolors? Quite a few.

    No. The tricolor flag is quite popular, and there's only a finite number of color combinations you can use in a tricolor. If anything, Ivory Coast's flag was inspired by that of France.

    I doubt anybody in the Ivory Coast could even find Ireland on a map ..............................
