Country flags work as a form of branding for countries. So are certain color combinations associated with different nations. In an abstract approach, all 12 colors which are used in 184 UN country flags, I dyed white fabric in a public laundromat in America. The simplicity of taking a color to create an identity for a nation is represented in a domestic use of every citizen. Where branding stands for identification, the color red for example,is used by 140 countries and is challenging the purpose. The title 4083 refers to the amount of different color combinations that are possible with 12 colors.
