Similar colors are grouped together to make navigation of this list practical. As such, the dark greens prevalent in the Middle East are sorted together with the brighter greens prevalent in Western Europe. Significantly: yellows, golds, and oranges are grouped together as "gold" due to the lack of discrete divisions within this spectrum and the differing standards of interpretation of "gold", which appears in the legally codified specifications of many flags. Some flags, including a number from South Asia, include both a distinct yellow and a distinct orange; these have been noted accordingly.This is a list of flags of states, territories, and other geographic entities (plus a few non-geographic flags) sorted by their combinations of dominant colors. Flags emblazoned with seals, coats of arms, and other multicolored emblems are sorted only by their color fields. The color of text is almost entirely ignored.

In the summer of 1385 the Scottish Parliament decreed that soldiers should wear a badge with the white Cross of St. Andrew against a black background. The corresponding flag, frequently with a blue background, was probably chosen to provide a stark contrast to the red-and-white flag of England (the Cross of St. George). After 1606, at least during those times when Scotland and England were under a common monarch, the saltire of St. Andrew and the Cross of St. George were united. The design of the Union Jack is the best-known example of the combination, but a quarterly arrangement was official during the rule of Oliver Cromwell in the mid-17th century. When Scotland and England joined to form Great Britain in 1707, their individual flags ceased to be recognized internationally.
