The Liberia flag is one inspired by the American flag. As an American colony known as “Pepper Coast” from 1822-1847, it is clear to see why their flag is almost identical except for 1 star and 11 stripes as opposed to the American flag with 50 stars and 13 stripes. The flag of Liberia is very serviceable and is a good looking flag to most. Liberia is separated into 15 counties with the newest one named Gbarpolu being added in 2001. All 15 of these counties have their own flags to represent themselves just like how states in America have flags and Canadian provinces and have flags. However, the flags of these counties are generally considered to be ugly and look to be drawn by a child. Many of these flags have very bright colors like yellow and bright green on them and look to be filled with clip art resembling a drawing from MS Paint. Vexilographers all over the world are baffled at the design of each and everyone. 14 of them follow the pattern of having a very tiny Liberian flag in the corner. Although, Grand Cape Mount County has their Liberian flag away from the sides slightly to create an exception to the rule.
