“Flash is dead” is the refrain we’ve heard thousands of times over the past few years. We’ve had debates on the subject on DesignFestival before. And while it’s certainly been disrupted and is falling out of favor as many designers instead focus on a combination of CSS3 and JavaScript, there are still many modern sites using Flash out there. The simple truth is that many of them look great. Here are 30 fantastic Flash websites that prove whether or not Flash is on its last legs, it’s not dead yet.

    These sites look beautiful but unfortunately, don’t have a mobile version for iOS. I wanted to see how the design would translate in the mobile environment.

    I looked at Sourcebits and Coca Cola.

    Hello, I am a web designer myself . I love your design templates , they are really eye catchy I am designing one right now

    I like the examples given, especially Star Wars. However, I think some web developers have too much time on their hands or clients have too much money to burn.

    When these eventually get updated to newer technology, I’d like to see side by side comparisons.

    They all look awesome! But completely invisible to search engines… & with android phones getting more popular, Flash will definitely fade out eventualy.
