Flag Conundrums

When browsing through the flags of the world, one notices some flags which are very similar.

Some of these similar flags are of countries which are close geographically, or which have a similar history, or both. Some such are:

Australia and New Zealand

Germany and Belgium

China and Vietnam

Slovakia and Slovenia

Then there are those which look similar, but are of countries which have no apparent connection to each other, such as:

Malaysia and the USA

Italy and the Republic of Ireland
