Flag Color Representation Parodies are a series of satirical infographics that supposedly illustrate symbolic connections between the colors of a national flag and sociocultural stereotypes that are widely associated with the said nation. Upon its breakout on Reddit in June 2017, the meme spawned several dozens of parodies, with many intended as satirical commentary or punditry, on social media.
On June 20th, 2017, /r/me_irl user TheRealDrogon uploaded an infographic featuring the flag of Italy with an Italian military joke. The post gained over 3,300 points (shown below).
The following day, the same image was shared on /r/MemeEconomy, where it was met by overwhelmingly positive feedback, garnering more than 19,000 points and soon reaching the front page of /r/all. Later that day, /r/MemeEconomy poster loimprevisto posted a megathread compilation of Flag Color Representation Parodies that had been posted to the subreddit (examples shown below).
Also on June 21st,h5. Your title here… /r/dankmemes user ItsMeBangle uploaded the German flag, a black, red, and yellow flag, with the color black representing "ambition," red: "loyalty," and a non-existent blue color representing "Things (Germany) did wrong in WWI and WWII." The post gained over 520 points in less than 24 hours (shown below, left). This was the first of dozens of posts that filled /r/dankmemes over the following day. The most popular there was an image of the Japanese flag with the red spot in the middle labeled "Impact Zone," posted by Mlike and gaining over 3,000 points (shown below, right).
