Stereotypical Flags

What do you think of when you think of the UK? Or Sweden? Or Brazil? Images of red buses, beautiful women and carnival come to my mind. Over on Behance, Krill Zaytsev has design a number of national flags made up of stereotypical images and words. He says, "This project is an experiment with visual forms of national flags using verbal stereotypes." Sweden is particularly good, but I think it's interesting to see what stereotypes countries have in a particular country, Russia in this case. I wonder how much it would differ country, to country.
