This is a great quiz! It's challenging because, you have to know the countries flag, then once you found that, you need to know where those countries are located, and think which countries only border those. But, I got 20/20! Nice job!

Weird—some maps show a land border between Qatar and the UAE, while others show that Qatar only shares a land border with Saudi Arabia. Is this due to territorial disputes between the UAE and Saudi Arabia?

Jul 9, 2020
I was confused as well, since I always learned that it doesn't. But apparently, sou66 is right in a sense. There is a thing called Treaty of Jeddah from 1974, that only the SA signed, and before, UAE did shared a border with Qatar. And since UAE didn't signed the treaty, some maps shows the old borders. But Jetpunk accepts the new borders and therefore, Quatar only borders SA.

How about Cyprus for the UK flag? North Cyprus is not a country by JetPunk standards, but overseas territories etc are not excluded for this quiz....

Let's not make the King Fahd causeway case here, as it is addressed in many other places already. :)

Shouldn't Cuba's flag be shown as bordering the US(Guantanamo Bay), and the UK's as bordering Spain(Gibraltar)?
+1
Level 75
Aug 23, 2020
Guantanamo Bay is actually Cuban territory leased by the US from the Cuban government. The US has held the lease since the end of the Spanish-American War and sends checks each year to the Cuban government for the usage of the land.

Btw if you are not, I am very curious where you are from (or what you age is, I guess if you are 6 or under it is forgivable. It is like saying japan isn't a country but part of (or another name for) china. Or saying portugal does not border spain, only france. Mixing spain and france up.)

Islands can have borders. Haiti and the Dominican Republic are on Hispaniola. Malaysia, Brunei, and Indonesia are on Borneo. PNG and Indonesia are on New Guinea. East Timor and Indonesia are on Timor. Chile and Argentina have borders on islands.

Really easy, but great! I think putting the Ireland - UK question twice is a bit weird. If you got it once, you'll get it again, if you didn't get it the first time, you won't on the second try. What's the use?
+1
Level 91
Aug 23, 2020
The quiz is about identifying country flags. In order to know that two answers are reciprocal you have to know both flags. For example, if someone knows the Union Jack they'll be able to get Ireland, but if they don't know the Irish flag, they won't know that answer is the UK.

There's a bit of confusion about borders on this site. It's a site standard or policy that country borders refer to land borders. And then generally, land borders includes inland rivers (like the Rio Grande). In the real world, countries generally 'own' the waters within 200 miles of their shores *unless* that water overlaps with the 200 mile territorial water of another country. All Ocean/Sea that is more than 200 miles from any country is considered to be 'international waters'. In cases where countries are separated by ocean/sea and within 200 miles of each other, there is a defined border in the water between them - they share a border in the water as there is no international water between them. Jetpunk does not count oceanic borders.
