The home flag has crashed out of our Best-Looking Flag tournament, the victim of a well-organized rally by Macedonia.
Macedonia tallied a remarkable 2,741 votes to Canada’s 783 in the semi-finals, and must now be considered the favourite heading into the final against the United Kingdom.
The Union Jack scored an impressive 1,326-607 win over Germany in the other semi-final.
Since late January, we have been relying on your votes to help us determine the world’s best-looking flag in a knockout tournament that started with 64 flags. We chose our entrants based on the countries of ethnic origin most cited by Canadian households in the 2011 National Household Survey. We will be declaring a winner in time for Flag Day, Feb. 15. Will it be Macedonia or the United Kingdom?
When the final was held, this was the result:
Macedonia 93.89% (13,190 votes)
Total Votes: 14,048
