Much of my work as a vexillologist had been a mix of Taoism and a kind of Biology perspective. Traditionally many vexillologists wish they were taxonomists, because they love to categorize flags. However the only rubric they use are flag designs. So enough mumbo-jumbo. The flag of Peru looks strikingly like the flag of Canada! Coincidence? Yes and no. If you're like Oprah or Dr. Wayne Dyer you'll easily understand there are no coincidences.
But for the record the Peruvian Flag came first and the Canadian Flag came second.
