As you'll have gathered from my previous posts regarding new town flags in the USA, I recommend about 80% of the flags used in North America, as bad flags!! This "bad flags" site is very amusing and pretty perceptive. In general I think he has it spot on although I think I am at odds with his opinon over the flag of Saint Petersburg Florida, for example. Overall though, flag designers of the World, take note.

The flag of Brown County, Nebraska is the most shocking.

Actually, are you familiar with the Razzies? Awarded to films considered so awful they are worthy of particular commendation? I think it would be an idea to set up something similar for flags. Nebraska would probably reign supreme, many of its flags look like the work of four year olds.

Do you know the flag of Irribarren, Lara State, Venezuela? http://www.crwflags.com/fotw/flags/ve-k-ba.html
It's not just one of the few flag featuring grey as a colour: it also features two shades of grey!
I think it really deserves a post in your blog.
