A parody of pelicans

A review of the flag of "Syldavia"

Syldavia is a fictitious country mentioned in "The Adventures of Tintin" by Hergé. It's said to be the smallest Balkan state, but is really intended as a good-hearted parody of Hergé's native Belgium. The name "Syldavia" is apparently based on Transylvania and Moldavia. Thus, this "flag" is a joke. But sure, I suppose this *could* fool somebody in your Midwest home town. Five stars! And yes, the bird is a pelican...
