Flags by Colours

Flags by Colours, a work by Shahee Ilyas. A computer generated piece done by using a list of countries from The World Factbook database, flags of countries fetched from Wikipedia are analysed by a custom made python script to calculate the proportions of colours on each of them. That is then translated on to a piechart using another python script. The proportions of colours on all unique flags are used to finally generate a piechart of proportions of colours for all the flags combined.
