The GnomePlanet World Mini Flag Set

Whilst developing my overlay maps with, I realised that I would need a full set of world and state flags. As no complete set was available to my specifications, I had no choice but to create more than 400 flags myself. Some examples are shown below.

The design guidelines for the Mini-Flag collection were : GnomePlanet's World mini-flag examples

  • Each flag is 48 pixels x 32 pixels x 16 colors
  • Each flag has a file-size of less than 1Kb
  • Each flag has a black border, 1 pixel wide
  • Each flag has been hand-edited, for clarity
  • A minimum number of colors used for each flag
  • Every current Amateur-Radio country included
  • Each flag identified by Country/State abbreviation
  • Fully updated with the latest flag: Montenegro
Image of hand-edited flag being compared to an automatically resized flag Some people have remarked that it would have been easier to re-size available flags. This was a possibility that I did do some research into, but in the end, I wasn't satisfied with the results obtained from even the best programs. If you take a look at the example of the flag for the US state of New York on the right, you can judge it for yourself.

Other people have suggested that it is easy to download the flags from the Internet, rather than pay. My response is to tell them to go ahead and try ! Finding flags for all of the current Amateur-Radio countries is a very difficult task, and will take you many hours. Here, you find them all together in one pack.

The full set of flags are included with the Photographer's World Database of Countries, States, and Cities. You can use them on private or commercial websites. The only restrictions are that you don't offer them for download as a package, try to re-sell them, or try to include them in any collection of graphics, clipart, etc. I would appreciate a link to this site wherever they are used, but that's not compulsory.

What you will receive:

Africa:75 flagsAsia:57 flagsEurope:72 flags
Oceania:59 flagsNorth America:48 flagsSouth America:29 flags
50 USA state flags + DC, same format as above:51 flags
Australia state flags8 flags
Canada province flags13 flags

  • Certain territories use the same flag as their mother country, so flags for these areas are duplicated in the set, though re-named for clarity.
  • Extra flags are included for certain areas, such as Shetland Islands, Sicily, United Kingdom, etc.
  • All flags are named by Country and/or State abbreviation, so you should use the database table 'flag' to select the correct one.

The flags are also available separately, without the Database, if required. The cost for the complete package of flags is just USD 7-75c.
