Vegan Friendly Countries by Flags
An Australian advertising agency created these images to promote the Sydney International Food Festival. Each flag is made of foods that represent the country. Let’s take a look at the ones that were made of vegan foods, shall we?
Brazil – banana leaf, limes, pineapple, passion fruit. Pretty good considering the Brazilian flag is a bit of a challenge!
India – curries, rice, pappadum wafer – naturally, India is number 4 on our list of Most Vegan Friendly Countries in the World
Italy – basil, pasta, tomatoes – and #2 on the aforementioned list. Told ya!
Korea – gimbap (seaweed rolls that are generally vegetarian with eggs, but can be made vegan), dipping sauces. And #3 on our said list. (There’s been a lot of controversy here at PD whether Korea is truly vegan-friendly and I must admit, I might be biased because my cousin in Seoul is a very popular blogger/food stylist with several cookbooks, one of which is vegan. I think there is more sleuthing and pow-wowing to do here–true investigative journalism.)
Lebanon – Lavash, fatoush, and parsley…I called Israel out as #6 on our list, and since Lebanon is a neighbor geographically and gastronomically, I’ll say that it was a good call.
Vietnam – rambutan, lychee and starfruit! This looks more like what you’d find on the ocean floor, don’t you think?
