I kinda like the Bangladeshi flag, but the fact that the red circle is off center drives me batty.

Apparently, a reason for the slight off-centre position is that the circle should appear centred when the flag is flying.

In an odd way that makes complete sense.

Many flags have an offset centre: The scandinavian crosses and other nordic flags inspired by these:

Greenland:

Sámi:

Frankly, I think the ones that don't have an offset centre, such as the english St. John's Cross, the Union Jack look slightly odd. Although tricolors look fine, and centred objects can work fine, such as the Kenyan flag. It's probably just a question of what you're used to.

This one is a bit confusing. I suppose it is drived from the union jack, but it looks offset, but then again that may be an optical illusion.

I like its use of color, and shapes. The green happens to be one of my favorite shades, so that's a plus for me.

Some others that caught my eye:

Togo

Bhutan

Jamaica

Serbia

Sierra Leone

I like Israel's flag as well; its simple, but not too simple. Laos' flag is another interesting one to me. To me, most of the time, the simple flags are the cool ones. [+1]

I like Bhutan, Wales, and the Republic of Formosa's flags for their animals.

Your Comrag flag is probably my favourite of the lot but that Church in Wales flag comes close. :P

Heraldic flag of Ríhann is fine (and need a gloss [:P] ), even if they are little complicated for simple flag
