The Kazakh flag has a lot of blue as it represents the sky.

The quiz is nice, though!

Mongolian capital is named after ruler too. Ulaanbaatar is ‘red warrior’, Suhe Baatar.

Interesting, I did know, that it means "red warrior", but I didn't know that was referring to one specific person. Thx for the comment. I will change it.

I clicked on Kazakhstan, because the capital was named for a ruler (which doesn't necessarily imply it still is).
