Flag size[edit]

Why are some flags much bigger than others? The Belgian flag in particular looks much taller than e.g. that of the UAE. --Gospatric (talk) 13:21, 4 September 2018 (UTC)

In part an optical illusion - or are you talking about some other use of flag, eg [1]? (talk) 15:38, 4 September 2018 (UTC)
@Gospatric As far as I'm aware, the proportions are all correct (if that's what you're asking about). National flags don't all have the same proportions, such as the flag of SwitzerlandWikipedia being a square. If you're asking why Belgium's flagWikipedia has unusual proportions then I'm not sure.

Thanks for the replies. I thought it looked odd when the template appeared multiple times with different flags, for instance on WIGO:World. But I hadn't realised there was quite so much variation in flag dimensions worldwide (Belgians are strange). It might look better if the height was constant and the width varied (so that each line of text is the same height), but I realise this is not an important issue. --Gospatric (talk) 15:06, 5 September 2018 (UTC)
