Please do not politicize this quiz with an image of the EU symbol. The European Union is not representative of all of Europe, which this quiz draws answers from (Russia, Switzerland, Iceland, Ukraine, et cetera).

European flag was designed originally for the Council of Europe and has been used by that organization for 30 years longer than EC/EU. CoE includes all European countries except Belarus, Kazakhstan, Vatican and Kosovo.

Besides, what about e.g. best basketball players quiz which only has an image of Michael Jordan?

A small part of Kazakhstan is considered European territory generally as the arbitrary border of Europe has been drawn through it. Generally speaking it's considered an Asian country though.

There are no speed limits on certain roads on the Isle of Man, UK. Not like Germany's autobahns - these are rural roads, where the law basically says don't drive like an idiot. But I think that technically, the UK has roads with no speed limit too!

Not only on Jetpunk. Look at a map. Continents are defined by physical geography - continental plates, oceans, mountain ranges, etc, not what currency they use. Is every country that uses US Dollars in North America now? Cyprus is clearly in Asia, and it would be in Africa before it was in Europe!
