"Whybin TBWA Australia and The Sydney International Food Festival cooked up a clever way to promote last year’s fest — they used iconic foods from the participating countries to recreate their flags. From the green-white-red of basil-spaghetti-tomatoes to the orange-white-green of tikka masala-rice-saag, the results are both appetizing and a little reminiscent of middle-school geography class. Which brings us to our challenge: Can you correctly identify these 12 culinary flags?"

Quoted directly from Flavorwire, since it's summed up better than I could manage on my own.

Here's another similarly themed guessing game from the same site: Match the Breakfast with the Country.

But where's the American flag made entirely of candy?

So, the Australia flag is some kind of meat pie?

I was about to be all, "The Spanish flag has a coat of arms, you jerks!" Turns out...

(Also, what's the deal with the Australian one? Do they not eat anything blue?)

That is really awesome.

If there was an American flag version, the key foods would be licorice (red), powdered donuts (white), and blue M&M's.

It's not a mouseover, Moofoo. It's blacked out text. You have to highlight it.

Not only that, it seems to be a meat pie garnished with red licorice.
