I made up a symbol like 'live long and prosper'. You just put your two middle fingers(you know, middle and ring) together, and your index and pinky separated. Your thumb can be wherever, and you know what it means? It's the opposite of 'live long and prosper', and it means 'live short and die broke'. XD

According to Wikipedia, both Venezuela and Costa Rica have symbols in them. You might want to update that, as I almost didn't get them because of it.

At least read the Wikipedia articles properly: the versions with the symbols are variants - depends on the situation which version is flown. The versions shown on this quiz are acceptable (as they would be if they had the versions with the symbols).

The flag you have for Costa Rica is actually the flag for Thailand. The Costa Rican flag has is the same as Thailand but it has an emblem on the middle stripe.

Also, I do not believe the official Peru and Bolivian flags have a coat of arms, just the bands of colors.

So untrue! Thailand's outer stripes are red and inner stripe is blue whereas Costa Rica's stripes are in reverse order. Can't mistake one for another. Great quiz! Love the order you arranged the flags, helps learn them fast!

It's not "SO" untrue, but you are incorrect, here. What YogBarOg said about the inversed colours is correct, but you are not wrong to think there should be a coat of arms just left of centre - there is on the variant flag, but it is more common to use the flag without the CoA.

When you create a quiz, there should be an option called picture, you click it you must have a picture for the only clue to the answer.

For anyone trying to learn flags:

Nicaragua and El Salvador look similar, but if you zoom in on one of them, you'll find that Nicaragua's says "republic of Nicaragua on it."

Paraguay also has its name on its flag.

I always remember St Vincent and the Grenadines because the diamonds on the flag are shaped like a "V"

Ditto to the stars on Honduras' flag; they look like an "H"

No joy here, the names for Nicaragua and Paraguay - and incidentally El Salvador too - have been taken off the flags displayed. Maybe you shouldn't have pointed it out.

Sometimes it's included, sometimes it isn't. Same with Bolivia. There probably is some reason for it though.

Some countries have different versions of their national flags, depending on situation and who is doing the flying of the flag: government offices might have one version, private individuals might only be allowed to use another. All are valid flags though.

Something for the Interesting Facts: the emblem displayed on the flag Paraguay is the nation's coat of arms; however, the emblem displayed on the reverse side is the seal of the treasury, making it one of the few flags in the world whose reverse side differs from the observe side.

The saint Lucia looks like a Lambda.

(I found more, but they will probably just work for me so I wont tell them, like trinidad&tobago and st kitts and nevis are both divided into two's and both have two names. (and kitts and nevis has the stars)

Break it up a bit, Central America.

Level 52
Jul 20, 2022
Many of the Central American flags are inspired by the short-lived Federal Republic of Central America, formed of modern-day Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. You can see the flag of this union here. So, there is a reason for the similarity. I get your statement, though.

The Costa Rican and Bolivian flags are missing their emblems, also, the Paraguayan flag is 2-sided, so both should be shown.
+1
Level 43
May 28, 2021
We have a variant for the Costa Rica flags, we use the version without the coat of arms most, the version with the coat of arms is just for oficiall things.

Really helps if you find the map version of this for just central america and just south america.

As each I learned almost instantly. This one has the rest the Caribbean but then if know them can learn by deduction and pattern.
