Qatar is a badass nation that breaks all the rules. Who else would dare to start the name of a country with a Q and then have the audacity not to follow that up with a U? And the flag is even more out there. Instead of following the standard ratio of lenght to height or 2:1, Qatar’s flag clocks in at 28:11. What kind of ratio is that? The flag’s design is a tribute to a rare Charles Schultz creation. It represents the single time Charlie Brown changed the stripes on his shirt from yellow and black to maroon and white. In Islamic cultures, it’s taboo to depict graven images, but the Qataris love Chuck B. so much they had to break the rules yet again. To disguise the representation, the flag depicts a cropped and zoomed in section of the shirt, flipped 90 degrees.
