Once again Mighty Optical Illusions brings you a classic trick. This after-image optical illusion appears, once you’ve stared at the red dot in the center of the USA flag more than 30 seconds; now quickly turn your eyes towards some white spot – for examlpe: your celling, a wall, piece of paper… What do you see? Did it work for you in a same way it worked for me? If you like after image optical illusions, visit “Jesus Illusion”, “Glowing Bulb” and “Batman”.

    If u invert the colors (mac users: ctrl,option,apple 8) then its the american flag. Its obvious i no, but just thought it would be interesting. It might even mention it in description,

    When doing this trick, instead of looking a piece of white paper, look at the same picture, just in black and white. It works!

  • F*** your as* off

    wow, but it’s like USA flag+UK flag because i just did the same thing right before i did this hehehe.

  • Anonymous

    thats not really scary…

  • Urian

    ahah im reading the comments and im still seeing the flag in the background

  • Person

    Wow… At first for me it was just a blue blob flying around the paper then all of a sudden the U.S. flag pops up and starts falling to the end of the paper!

  • Mint’Choc

    i stared for around half a minute then stared up at the ceiling but saw nothing. But when I look back at the monitor (since the website’s background is white too), I saw it! The colour is exactly the SAME!

  • Anonymous

    dude, wow, thats seriously amazing.

  • Jacqueline

    AHH I can’t stop seeing American Flags!!!!

  • psychboy

    it has to with color opponent processes. our visual system contains cells that have red vs green, blue vs yellow and black vs white color opponents. staring at one color long enough floods the cell with that color so that when you look away you see its opponent. hu hutz!

  • Koolkat1337

    Epik! That is just amazing! =D

  • T Rich

    that was pretty cool.. i’ve seen stuff like that. it has to do with the way your eye recieves light and rods and cones and stuff.. red blue and green. red + blue = magenta or something.. blue + green = cyan.. and green + red = yellow. and all three combined is white.. no light is black. :)
