Coca-Cola: The Happy Flag

Coca-Cola is spreading happiness with a hidden flag. Denmark has been named the happiest country in the world in several global surveys with the latest by the UN. So it was a remarkable discovery to find the Danish flag hidden in the Coca-Cola logo.

McCann decided to take this discovery to Denmark’s biggest airport where it’s a tradition to welcome people with flags. But not everyone brings one and the welcome isn’t as big and happy as it could be. That's why McCann created a special poster where people could take flags straight from the Coca-Cola logo. This gave everyone the chance to create a happy welcome to the world’s happiest country.

I like it, but what about the ads for Indonesia, Monaco, Poland, Peru and Austria? Their flags are also in the original logo...
