These flags were designed for Good Food Month, the international food festival which takes place in Sydney every year, by the Australian advertising agency TBWA.

When you think of French food, smelly cheese and grapes are probably the first things that come to mind.

As it’s pasta when the Italian cuisine is mentioned, or curry when asked about Indian gastronomy.

So it’s not hard to see why these commonly associated foods have been plated up alongside others to recreate some of the world’s national flags in a collection of photographs.

Now many of you will likely disagree with some of the foods selected to symbolize a particular country, but keep in mind it can be challenging to not only use food that represents the country but also works with the actual design of the flag (e.g., starfruit for stars).

Btw it was created for fun! Donā€™t take it too seriously šŸ™‚
