I think the answer about the highest waterfall in Europe may need changing. Krimml falls are certainly the highest in Austria at about 380m, but Mongefossen in Norway has a height (and drop) of more than 770m. I'm pretty sure that Mongefossen is the highest in Europe.

You could write 'not a rectangle' instead since all the other flags are rectangles.

I had it as that originally, but I changed it so that no one can complain that some are squares (even though squares are technically rectangles). Thanks for the feedback!

Enjoyed this. Not that i got to the last question, but Mount Chimborazo should maybe be termed furthest from the centre of the Earth, as it's always that but it's not always nearest the Moon as it's only facing the Moon for a short bit of each day.

Great quiz! However every source i find lists Vinnufossen, Norway as the highest waterfall in Europe, if you could change that maybe?

I've just noticed that Skorga waterfall in Norway may be even higher than Vinnufossen by a few metres...

Congrats on top 1000 quizzers! I believe the fourth question should say 'Which country's flag ...' since the answer is singular. I'm going back through this series, keep it up!
