I am using citypopulation.de data for each country, not the default 1 million+ agglomeration map. The cities are organised by urban area population.

Two errors in my answers which have fixed. I didn't realise the population figures for Italy were by city proper, and while it is harder to find urban area statistics for Italian cities, I ended up using Wikipedia as a secondary source. Sorry about that, everyone.

What's really cool is if you don't get Bari but get Milan and Rome you still get the Italian flag at the end!

CityPopulation.de puts Nantes (309k) larger than Bordeaux (254k). Unless this is going by Agglomeration?

And great work in looking for the most suitable flag/cities combination, I think that maybe there is room for some more countries to be added (like Belgium, Poland, Belarus, Argentina)

A very minor detail, but if for every answer row, if you will change Padding-Vertical for row to 3, it would make the color boxes more like square, unlike the current rectangle. Although this is completely optional, square boxes might look better than Rectangles. I tried it by copying the quiz, and it was looking good.

Nice quiz, it was great to play.

I have a couple of suggestions:

1) could you please add in the description that you're using "city proper", I had a hard time thinking of urban areas (e.g.: Naples is bigger than Rome, The Hague is bigger than Amsterdam, etc.)

2) Is it possible to have "Ahrus" as an alternative spelling for Aahrus? I'm always confused, as the Danish name is Åhrus, so there's only one "A".

It's Århus/Aarhus.
+1
Level 70
Aug 31, 2020
I'm using urban area, I only forgot to for Italy. The urban area for The Hague is around 600 thousand and Rotterdam too is smaller than Amsterdam. Århus has always been accepted. Thank you for the feedback!

India was a funny case because in theory the tricolour is perfect for such a regional and highly populated country... and then I had to figure out what to do with the chakra haha.
