Google image search: visually similar images:

Copaso gave me this from the Finnish flag blue:
And here are the color palettes; Blend or Analogous palette; Complementary colors; Triad; Tetrad and Split Complimentary. (No wonder the lime green seems to go well with the Finnish colors :-D)

Here's results from Pictaculous' color palette generator:
Per Bang's Color Scheme Generator gives many possible schemes, here's only some of them:
His RGB tool is really fun to play with:
It gives several color scheme suggestions. This is just one of them...
It has Pantone Matching System... The background color is your color, so you can see how closely the Pantone shade comes to it.
and Wiki Colors name list... And a lot of other stuff. Really wonderful!
And I love the gradient tool, too :-D (I took the Finnish flag colors; dark blue and white)
I think the Colourcode is a bit hard to use, but if you are ok with a "close enough" color, you'll get nice suggestions for color palette.
Colorsontheweb has a nice color scheme generator, as well.
And here's some advice on how you can pick colors and create your own palette from a photo with the help of a picture processing program. I use Paint Shop Pro 8.
First I decrease the amount of colors in the picture to 256 colors.
Then I decreate it to 16 colors.
Then I increase it to all the possible colors and pixelate it.
