Data visualization experiment using flags of the world

Flags of the world as piecharts. Each sector of these piecharts is proportional to the area of the colour on the respective flag.
Using a list of countries generated by 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.
