As part of a promotion for the Sydney International Food Festival, creative advertising agency WHYBIN\TBWA designed 18 national flags using local food commonly associated with each country.
The challenge was to find foods strongly related with every country that also match the color of each flag. Yet WHYBIN\TBWA did a fine job, nobody can argue that Japan is not associated with tuna and rice, or that Switzerland is known for swiss cheese and Greece for feta cheese.
You can check out below the exact ingredients used to “cook each flag” and of course enjoy the stunning images of the inspired campaign.
