I liked the quiz, but I would not say these are unusual features. How can we call the southern cross unusual when 5 countries have it on their flags?

I feel like that constitutes an unusual feature, that's 191 countries which don't have a Southern Cross on their flag! I understand that 'unusual' is a subjective term however.

Does Spain have some purple? See https://www.crwflags.com/fotw/flags/xf-csts.html

Interesting, Wikipedia has it down as pink (here), although describes the lion on the Coat of Arms as 'purpure'. The pink tone seems to be a point of contention in Spain, as it's not very faithful to the purple used historically by the Kingdom of León.

Long story short, I'll add it!

Love this quiz. Flags, especially the unusual ones, are so interesting. I read on here a while ago about Jamaica being the only flag without red or white or blue and even that fact alone is mind blowing. Thank you so much.

You should include a star with 12+ prongs. There are 4 such countries: Nauru [12], Nepal [12], Malaysia [14], and Marshall Islands [24].

Great quiz, I like it!

You might want to include Vanuatu with a boar's tusk in the flag, or the sacred structures in the flag of Cambodia or Mongolia. The flag of Grenada has a nutmeg in it. Also, you included flags with Latin inscriptions, but how about the ones with Arabic? So many possibilities still unused. :)

It has maroon not purple, but Qatar could be included as the only national flag whose width is more than twice its height!

Fun quiz, thanks!

You could also add Cambodia. It is the only flag that features a building (Angkor Wat).

Portugal, Spain and San Marino also have buildings (castles/forts).
