NEARLY NO COUNTRY HAS THE COLOUR PURPLE IN THEIR FLAG
<html>
<p>Did you know that nearly no country flag has got the colour purple on it?&nbsp;</p>
<p>There is a very good reason for that, and I will show you in this video why.&nbsp;</p>

<p>Purple was a very expensive colour to make, and for that reason nearly no flag has purple on it.&nbsp;</p>
<p>Purple only became affordable a lot later when William Henry Perkins discovered a cheaper way to make the colour purple.</p>
<p>This is such an interesting video that will tell you the whole history, so please do not miss it.&nbsp;</p>
<p>It is something we should all learn just because it is interesting.</p>
<p>&nbsp;Purple was a very expensive item, only very rich people like kings, and other rich people who could afford it could wear clothes in that colour. &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>

Always boiled down to kings, nobleman and clergy having the colour purple. 

World was crazy then, not much has changed. Interesting information thanks @bigbear
