These lovely works of art are a delicious twist on edible culture. The food flags shown here are not only astonishingly accurate depictions of national flags from around the world, but they're also created using dishes popular dishes from those parts.

The food flags featured here include Italy (made of basil, plain spaghetti and fresh tomatoes), Japan (a white plate with nothing but a circular cut of raw tuna nigiri), France (made of blue cheese, brie and red grapes), India (curry, rice and spinach), Greece (olives and feta), Switzerland (prosciutto and -- what else? -- Swiss cheese), Korea ( kimbap rolls), Vietnam (litchis and starfruit) and Spain (rice and sausages).

The food flags are part of an ad series promoting the Sydney International Food Festival, a creation of WHYBIN/TBWA, Australia.
