When arranged strategically food can become anything from haute couture to a modern art masterpiece. In some cases, it can literally be the symbol of a nation. Case in point? These delicious edible flags.
Created a few years ago to attract visitors to a food festival in Australia, the edible flags are still popping up across the internet. They are the work of advertising agency WHYBIN/TBWA in Sydney.
What's fantastic about them isn't just that the artists nailed the colors of the flag, but the foods used are a direct reflection of the country's culinary tradition.
For instance, Italy is represented with pasta, tomatoes and basil (duh) while the flag of India consists of basmati rice, chicken tikka and saag (spinach curry) and a seal made of crispy papadam.
Check out the flags below and let us know which one is your favorite. Do you spot your country?
