* The number of countries with flags that are white, blue, and red and no other colors varies, but it hovers around twenty, and includes Iceland, the United Kingdom, the United States, France, and Luxemburg.

Luxemberg's flag is a lighter blue, like the blues of the flags of Israel and Greece, which have blue and white, but no red.

Israel and Greece have different stories about getting to blue and white for their flags, but still and all, they are countries that are by the Mediterrean Sea and they have flag colors that are the colors that overwhelm on good days on their shores.
