Fantastic quiz, nominated but the pedant in me wants to point out that the Paraguay flag should have two symbols because it’s double sided

Yeah the Netherlands + a circle that says "Paraguay" = ? isn't much of a stfetch.

Yet how is it answered only 80% of the time?

Btw, can you add a border around the flag images so that the white portion can be seen i.e. Russia? (Add border="1" to the image code)

Maybe it’s just on mobile, but the base flag for Ecuador is just showing up as white, also Paraguay is given away in the seal.

If anyone cares to know why Mexico's coat of arms is of a bird perched on a prickly pear cactus on a lake eating a snake, it is because of the Aztecs in Tenochtitlan. When the Aztecs were nomads, they believed that when they saw a bird eating a snake atop a prickly pear cactus that it would be a sign from their god of where to settle. When they arrived in the Valley of Mexico in a swampy area, according to their culture they saw this event (although I am skipping several major events like the Toltecs; it took them a while to find this place in the Valley of Mexico). After this, they built these man-made islands called chimpanas so that they had places to live and farm. Eventually they built a 200K people (very, very large by standards of the time) city called Tenochtitlan. When the Aztecs were defeated by the Spanish conquerors, the city crumbled to ruins. In it's place, Mexico City, the second largest city in the Americas, was built. Just sharing what I learned in History weeks ago.

200k is still a decent-sized city. That is about the size of Salt Lake City and bigger than Akron, Knoxville, Providence, Dayton, and Syracuse.

"Mathematics" is not plural.

The English always pluralize "maths." Never gave any thought to who is right, but I've always heard them say it that way.

@ jmellor ^ I'm not sure how this discussion arose / began, but we British don't pluralise it; our abbreviation remains singular, but it ends is s just like mathematics does. Physics also ends in s and is singular, but it isn't long enough to abbreviate.

I mean it's an idea. If you know your flags, it doesn't do much in regards to difficulty. The "equations" are more of new feature of doing a flag quiz.

I just noticed that the flags on the left without the symbols or emblems are almost all valid country flags on their own:

Peru

Austria

Italy

Yemen

Mali

Russia (twice)

Romania/Chad (twice)

Hungary

(no such flag)

Netherlands

Colombia

Netherlands again

You could make a variant of this quiz where you have the name of a country and an emblem (or the description of an emblem) as a clue to produce new country flags.

I think that was exactly the spirit of this quiz: take a country flag and add something to it to make another country's flag. The flag that makes Ghana with the black star is from Bolivia.
