if you added North Korea and Palestine, you should add South Korea and Israel. Same with Taiwan and Mainland China. Donetsk and Luhansk are not the official names of the republics. Full names are - Luhansk People's Republic and Donetsk People's Republic.

Thanks for the comment. This isn't a comprehensive list, but meant to be a balance between easy and hard.

I hope to expand the quiz to include more flags, and will take your suggestions into account.

There are a lot of countries that Bhutan does not recognize, some of them are: the US, China, Russia, and France

It's not that Bhutan doesn't recognise these countries, but rather that Bhutan doesn't have diplomatic relations with them, as it follows an isolationist policy.

This needs A LOT more type-ins and a couple minutes more. I knew them all, but ran out of time. I can only imagine how much harder it would be if I didn't know them.

Thank you for your feedback. I agree. I hope to update this quiz with many more type ins (once I work out how that works) ;-)

There's an error, it's written Saint Pierre and Michelon instead of Saint Pierre and Miquelon.

Would suggest allowing Christmas, Cayman, and US Virgin to keep it consistent. Maybe also Polynesia

Thank you. Fair point. I'll update this once it's off the user spotlight list.

A helpful new feature: We no longer have to use just Wikimedia photos, so the 3 flags with the name right on them can be edited and then directly uploaded.

I'm going back through the few quizzes I have and weeding out the poor images I was stuck with.

Donetsk and Luhansk were annexed by Russia this year. Does this qualify for them to be removed from the list?

I would say that the situation with Donetsk and Luhansk (and Crimea for that matter) is very far from being resolved.

There is certainly very limited international recognition of the current situation.

Thank you. I don't necessarily disagree with your description, but it seems to me that their status should mean that they are still included in this quiz. Perhaps I should broaden the definition of what is included here?

Why is China here??

Good question. Both the People's Republic of China and the Republic of China (Taiwan) are included here to acknowledge the fact that both countries are not fully 'recognised' by the international community. Now obviously the PRC is the major power with much greater recognition, but it is not universal.

Nice quiz! Could you add "Cayman" as a write in for the Cayman Islands and "Christmas" as a write in for the Christmas Islands?

For most of the names you accept just the first part of the name (for example, you accept "Pitcairn" for the Pitcairn Islands), so would make the answer write ins consistent across the quiz.

Good quiz, with some good points made above. You shouldn’t have to type in “island” or “islands” for any question really. BVI is a standard Jetpunk type-in for the British Virgin Islands. Tristan should also be enough, as the spelling gets trickier in “Da Cunha”

Nominated in any case
