The Big Bang Theory is a bad show and you should feel bad for liking it. But having a fascination for world flags and their symbolic meaning? That’s okay in our books.

Have you ever watched an Olympic Games’ opening ceremony and wondered what all those flags’ shapes and colours mean? Why does the Libyan flag have a crescent moon on it? Do the coloured bands on the German, Italian and French flags represent anything? And what’s the deal with the Nepalese flag’s weird-arse shape?

All of these questions and more are answered in the following infographic which was created, oddly enough, by Carport Central.

Precisely what flags have to do with a protective shelter for automobiles isn’t explained. Perhaps Sheldon could shed some light by running a few experiments? (Okay, okay, I was a closet fan.)

Here’s the graphic:
