How Does the Random Flag Generator Work?

Using the random flag generator tool is everyone's cup of tea. Let's elaborate on the procedure to use this randomizer tool-

  • First of all, open the randomgenerate.io website and head to its home page.
  • Secondly, from the menu of different tools find out random flags generator to click on.
  • Thence, choose the Number of Flags you want to be produced randomly. Note, you can put any natural number from 1- 20.
  • Finally, tap on the Generate Flag button. You will be served!

The result will also show the name of the country along with its abbreviated name (such as GB for Great Britain).

The database covers almost all nations including the flags of such territories that are occupied or administered by other countries (for example, Wallis and Futuna under France, Cook Island under Britain, French Polynesia, etc.)

As the database of flags, indubitably so, is limited, so while choosing a greater number of flags you may confront some repetition.

The History and Symbolism of Flags:

The flag is generally a piece of cloth that bears the insignia of a certain entity. Historically, it used to mark the lordship of an entity over a region. The flags were used on the battlefields in ancient times to determine whether a march is a friend or foe.

The invention of flags is credited to the people of the Indian subcontinent and China. The famous epic called Mahabharata (which was written between 300 BCE- 300 CE) mentioned the usage of flags. At that time, the fall of the flag meant defeat in battle.

The founder of the Chinese Zhou dynasty used to carry a white flag in front of his army. Then gradually, the custom of carrying flags started in Egypt, Persia, Assyria, etc.

The flag is not merely the identity of a community or nation. It also assigns some symbolic values to it. For instance, the color in the French National Flag stands for fraternity, brotherhood, and equality. It was adopted after the French Revolution.

Sometimes a flag also indicates certain information about a country, for example, the number of stars in the national flag of the USA stands for the number of states.

A flag also explicitly expresses the religious beliefs of a country, for instance, the St. George Cross and the Nordic Cross are totems of Christianity, crescent moon and a star are signs of Islamism.

The Indian flag, on the other hand, directs its people to the virtues one should possess (e.g. Saffron stands for sacrifice and courage, White for peace, Green for growth and auspiciousness, and the Blue Ashoka Chakra for the truth)

Sometimes, flags devise the spirit animal of a nation, for example, Dragons are the spirit animal for China and Bhutan, Lions for Sri Lanka, Grey-crowned Crane for Uganda, etc.

Thus, a flag denotes the symbolism and culture of a country apart from being a sign of identity. It represents national identity and unity.
