World Cup of Japanese Designated City Flags!

:trophy: World Cup of Flags of the Cities Designated By Government Ordinance of Japan :jp:

What a fucking humdinger of a thread to celebrate Geography Week right here on DiS!

A city designated by government ordinance (政令指定都市, seirei shitei toshi ), also known as a designated city (指定都市, shitei toshi ) or government ordinance city (政令市, seirei shi ), is a Japanese city that has a population greater than 500,000 and has been designated as such by order of the Cabinet of Japan under Article 252, Section 19 of the Local Autonomy Law.

And there’s 20 of them, what a perfect number. HERE WE GO with the Group Stage.

One the one hand, yes. On the other hand, local flags without derpy animals are a bit of a letdown

Fucking hell, how does one country kick our butts in so many ways? These make our county flags look like some kind of joke put together by the cheapest Hollywood art department.

Really love how Kawasaki’s flag makes me think of OCP’s logo in the original* RoboCop

I think the ones I voted for came second in each group. What a mockery of your beautiful #geographyweek. If I said any of them were the flag for Isle of Wight, everyone would be like… oh right yeah.
