18 National Flags Made of Signature Foods...

A friend posted an interesting article from on FB today, "National Flags Created From the Foods Each Country Is Commonly Associated With" by Paul Caridad...

Australian advertising agency WHYBIN\TBWA created this amazing visual display to promote the Sydney International Food Festival.  Each year, Australia's largest food festival draws millions of attendees and chefs from around the world.  The images below represent the national flags of 18 different countries made with foods common to each....I am blown away by this creative vision that accurately represents the culinary flavor of each nation! My favorites are Italy, France, and Japan (go figure)....Sadly, the U.S. seems to be the only country with the king of processed foods, surprise, surprise...Enjoy!
