Flag Song Lyrics
The German flag has three stripes — gold and red and black
The United Kingdom’s flag is the well-known union jack
The flag of the United States is the famous stars and stripes
Australia’s flag is the union jack plus 6 stars in white
New Zealand’s flag looks the same but with 4 red stars instead
China’s flag has 5 gold stars – and its background is red
A star and crescent moon are on the flag of Pakistan
A large red sun on a white background? It clearly is Japan
The flag of France is blue and red with a white stripe in between
Italy’s looks much the same but instead of blue there’s green
The flag of Indonesia has not three stripes but two
In the centre of the Indian flag is a wheel of navy blue
The yellow cross on the Swedish flag is really rather bright
South Africa’s is yellow and green — and red, black blue and white!
A yellow stripe and two red stripes? Buenos días Spain
And here’s the South Korean flag — it’s anything but plain
Switzerland’s flag is rather rare — because it is a perfect square
And now we see the Turkish flag flying proudly in the air
If you are from Canada you’ll know this maple leaf
And alternating blue white stripes? They’re representing Greece
A starry sky on a field of green? It’s the bright flag of Brazil
The white stripe in the Irish flag is a symbol of goodwill
You’re sure to see these three stripes if you go to Mexico
And this one is the Russian flag — the last one that we’ll show
