US Flag

An optical illusion is a visually perceived image that is deceptive or misleading.


Fun:*** (3.08)
Submitted By:Jake


Look at the center of the image for about 30 seconds. Then quickly shift your gaze to somewhere with a white background. You should see an afterimage of the US flag with the correct colors! This happens because your eye reverses the colors in afterimages.

It didnt work for me.

Posted by hamburger on Nov 04, 2005

Drag the mouse over the flag and you see the correct colors though.

Posted by kayleeskitties on Nov 05, 2005

Posted by Brooklyn-Angel on Dec 04, 2005

It took me more than 30 seconds to look at it, but I eventually got to see the regular colors of the flag. I'm impressed!!!!!! Try to male another illusion that is even better than this one.

Posted by Marty_New on Dec 04, 2005

That was soooooo cool!!!!!! It worked the first time for me!

Posted by kickthecan on Dec 10, 2005

I've seen a Marylin Monroe one before where you stare at her green lips and then you see them red, and ove seen a lightbulb one where its balck then it turns yellow!. LOL I love these.

Posted by smilingpatience on Dec 18, 2005

If only I saw it....

Posted by Baby_Girl on Dec 19, 2005

it was okay

Posted by ragethe3rd on Dec 20, 2005

Cool but you should probably stare at it for about a minute.

Posted by sudokulvr on Dec 21, 2005

ive seen these b4, and its works better if you put a white dot to stare at in the middle at the green flag and a black dot to stare at in the empty space. somehow, it makes it easir for people to concentrate. (people like me )

Posted by sebastian on Dec 25, 2005

KOOL!!!!!!!!! I LUV IT!!!!!!

Posted by brainjuice on Mar 27, 2006

finally i see it!!

Posted by smartsy on Mar 29, 2006

braingle submitted that one..... how do they put the image on the screen?

Posted by Andylee964 on Apr 03, 2006

This is a great demonstration of how the eye sees the world. Did you know that your eye actually sees everything upside-down? It's because of your brain that you think you "see" the world right side up.

Post-script: I copied this into Microsoft Paint and inversed the colors, it is the exact opposite. That's how it was probably made, same program maybe too.

Posted by calmsavior on Apr 07, 2006

thanks for putting this on the site!

actually the aftereffect is governed by the fact that the cones used to see the colors of the image get tired, and allow the other unused cones to show up when looking at a neutral white.

Posted by YnG18 on Apr 12, 2006

That's actually the coolest one I've seen all day...actually ever!

Posted by Jimmis on Apr 17, 2006

My eyes, they're broken!

Posted by ChrisKing on May 06, 2006


Posted by scallio on May 12, 2006

Tried twice without success. Will try again by staring at it a bit longer. I could see a faint flag outline, but couldn't tell the colors.

Posted by danielzerman on Jun 18, 2006

i like the fact that that happens in that way. way cool

Posted by cyberstar5150 on Jun 30, 2006

Is it bad if I still see the afterimage about 30 min after seeing the image?

Posted by gorillazgirl on Jul 01, 2006

wow that was soo cool

Posted by akl21 on Jul 03, 2006

Awesome! I've seen that before somewhere else, but it's never really worked. Did this time though~

i cant get it to work

Posted by rickgrey5 on Jan 05, 2007

it worked!!! its sooooo kool!!!!

Posted by WhitenerdyAl on Jan 05, 2007

Those things are so cool!

If you have got a very good art editing program, you can take a picture, make it black and white, thake the same picture and invert the colour, then put it on a little slide thing, stare at the first picture for bit, then go onto the next one, for a couple of seconds, you can see the actual colours that it's meant to be! Try it!

Posted by adiddie48 on Jan 17, 2007

that is friggin scary amzing mad kool

Posted by sepherocity on Jan 27, 2007

Probably woulda worked if it burnt into your eyes?

Posted by chocolatechippy on Feb 04, 2007

AWESOME!!!!!!!! FOr those of you who can't see it look just below the third stripe and stare at the exact same place looking nowhere else on the flag. Then have a piece of white paper next to you and look at the paper (don't hold up the paper) and you will see it really faintly. At first i didn't see it but then i got it.

Posted by LeafFan4life on Feb 28, 2007

thanks chocolate chip tht helped i finally saw it this is very vey very cool to see but it is pretty time consuming and nowi ma wasting my time writhng this comment.....ok bye now

Posted by luv2sing101 on Mar 11, 2007

Posted by yerg on Mar 25, 2007

Posted by born2write on Mar 29, 2007

Posted by sassybabe on Apr 04, 2007

im dizzy wwwooaah ow i just fell lol keep up the good work woah ow i did it again

Posted by dachshund2k3 on Apr 12, 2007

Actually, this occurrs because the colors get burned into your retinas, and your eye becomes fatigued of seeing the same colors. Therefore when you look at a white sheet of paper, you see the complementary colors of what you were just looking at.

Posted by dragonxr on Apr 15, 2007

u can just close your eyes

Posted by grilledcheese on Apr 20, 2007

i saw this in a science book once. i thought it was cool. i like it

Posted by NiseyD on Jun 16, 2007

I can see howw it works but not working today

Posted by FutureMD on Jun 18, 2007

Very interesting... I find the whole concept of the eye reversing colors to be intriguing... I wonder if there is a way to base a research project (which I have to do in the fall) on this concept-Send me a message if you have any ideas...

Posted by ringpop_rara on Jun 23, 2007

i didn't see it hold on let me try again

Posted by ringpop_rara on Jun 23, 2007

ok now i see it good 1 jake thats going into my favs

Posted by saltydavid on Jun 28, 2007

OK, now this is really great. I wonder what causes this?

Posted by 1smart_okie on Jul 06, 2007

all i see is black know

Posted by Fhempen on Jul 06, 2007

its cause when you look at anything, and then you look at a white surface, you see only the oppsite colors of the specturm instead of the ones you were really looking at....something to do with color cones in your eye getting tired of relaying the same color to your brain, so they reverse it and it refreshes them or something....

It's ALOT of fun to make these yoursef! i do it all the time...make a simple picture with a black dot at the center (but the whole picture has to be in reverse coloring...if you dont know the oppisite of a color, draw a huge blob of that color with a black dot in the middle and stare at it for like 30 sec or more...then close your eyes, or look at something completely white. That color you see is the reverse color)

This actually happens in your eye for anything you look at for any amount of time. but the less you look at it, the fainter the image is.

post a comment back, and while you are typing stare at one point in the green box for however long at a time, then look at the white area next to all the smilies! it looks pink!

Posted by thepoppinbrain on Jul 12, 2007

Nice one. But when I looked at something white it reverted colors. It was cool.

That wqas so cool it worked it messed with my eyes please help eye doctors oh thank god my eyes are save

Posted by on Dec 12, 2007

I suggest staring for 45 seconds, then looking into the extra white space within your internet surfing application. To renew the sight effect, blink.

Posted by beriesNcreamx28 on Dec 19, 2007


Posted by princess2007 on Dec 27, 2007

i think that the amount a person needs to stare at the flag depends on the concentration level. Oh and by the way, does anyone have a more detailed explanation? Nothing on google. I mean like why the eye turns colors around or which colors turn into which colors. Just curious.

Posted by princess2007 on Dec 27, 2007

Fhempen's comment was helpful but not totally detailed. Help?

Posted by Fhempen on Dec 28, 2007

what can i help you with?

Posted by VFD642 on Dec 28, 2007

easy to make on paint (windows) open a picture in paint, go to the menu. under image you click on invert colors or skip the menu part and hit ctrl+I

The explanation wh some of us did not see it depend on how the picture quality of your computer imige. EXAMPLE: If you have an HD computer you will get better results.

Posted by mir77 on May 16, 2009

SO COOL! the only problem is, I STILL SEE IT! but still fun, hopefully it will go away soon.

Posted by grilled_cheese3 on Jun 04, 2009

if you look at neon colors and look at a white surface than you see every thing in the positive colors. the human eye gets confused with neon colors. the neon is actually correct colors but the eye tricks the brain. even if your color blind and someone sees something like the flag at the top of the page the colors are normal to that person. im no genius. its just common logic.

Posted by brain23 on Jun 20, 2009

I didn't really see it, but while I was looking, there were these red and white stripes kind of slowly getting away from the incorrect mind never works with afterimages.

Posted by Cyril on Feb 14, 2010

rubish it doson't chage colous

Posted by sashomarine on Mar 27, 2010

Cyril it is NOT rubbish. Your probally going to just have to say mississippi 30 times. Either that or your not looking at the center of the flag. It is kind of hard to see if you quickly look at a brown table or something, so looking at a piece of paper is the best choice. Blinking rapidly at a piece of white paper is the best way to see it.

Posted by on Apr 12, 2010

I didn't see it.

Posted by animallover2000 on Jun 15, 2010

That is one of the awesoest optical illusions ever!! My friend and i tried it and we saw the pure colors of the regular American flag!!! omg i loved it! i voted, "fun"!! Of only there was a vote called "amazing"!!!! I would vote that. Thanks for putting it up there, anyways... I loved it. And for those people that can;t see it.... go get checked by an eye doctor maybe... :l it is impossible to not see unless something is wrong with your eyes. go get checked by an eye doctor if you can't see the right colors. bYE

I didn't see it the first time I did it either, thought after doing it this time, I blinked a little bit while looking at a blank wall, and I saw it.

Andylee said: This is a great demonstration of how the eye sees the world. Did you know that your eye actually sees everything upside-down? It's because of your brain that you think you "see" the world right side up.

^ This is blowing my mind.

Ive spent approximately three hours on the laptop on the same page just looking at this illusion and it hasn't worked. However Im sure that its cool!

Wait! I tell a lie, I just saw it, yay!

It didn't work for me either, but I know it does work, we used this effect in art class, because when you paint you use a color's opposite in it's shadow, because that is the way you see it in real life. And btw, basic color opposites, or compliments are: red-green, blue-orange, and yellow-violet. I was taught that black-white did not work the same way.

Amazed every time I do this one.

I'm partially colorblind. I will vote fail for that alone! LOL. I wish I could have seen the effect though.

I think the flag actually looks a LOT better this way.
I'm an odd person.
