This flag map of Europe is a thing of beauty

Here at indy100 we love our flags.

We made a flag map of Europe, so you can tell we're not just throwing that about.

We've made quiz after quiz.

However, someone's gone and bettered us in flag nerddom.

Recently a reddit user called Drac-Henry submitted a flag map of some European, African and Middle Eastern Capitals to a popular mapping subreddit.

It's very pretty, and a cool way of visualising the differences.

People pointed out Copenhagen was a bit off - it has no official city flag.

It does, however, have a coat of arms.

So we understand the reason for leaving it blank.

People also drew issue with the capitals of Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales not being represented.

Here's also, for good measure, the flag of Belfast:

The flag of Edinburgh:

And the flag of Cardiff:

There was also a point to make about the flag of London in the original post on the purest subreddit in the world, Vexillology:

Here's the flag of Greater London:

Here's the City of London:
