Vatican and Switzerland have square flags - mathematicians would (correctly) say that a square is a rectangle, but that feels a bit of a tight distinction in a general knowledge quiz. Maybe reference "irregular shape" or something like that instead?

"Which European countries have a flag that consists of three stripes: red, white, and blue?" - Maybe it should be changed to "ONLY consists of...". Flags like the Serbian flag would technically qualify otherwise.

Yes. Another flag fact: When the Filipino flag is flown with the blue bar on top, it signifies that the Philippines is in peace. When the red bar is on top it signifies that the nation is in a state of war.

Did you know that according to legend, the Dannebrog originates from the battle of Lyndanisse (in modern-day Estonia)? It is said to have fallen from the sky when the Danes had nearly been defeated and the flag led them to victory.
