yes, agreed the civil flag does but more often than not it has no badge in the centre, when flown internationally, so it is included

@NQChien for some reason I can't reply to your comment, so I'll do it like this. I believe the Spanish flag is connected more to the Coat of Arms, I always see it with it unlike the Peruvian flag

The Spanish flag also has the colour yellow as a horizontal stripe in the middle, therefore it's not only present in the coat of arms.

Qatar is rather brown as red. It's the same shape as Bahrain though

No, it is not brown, much like the Latvian flag, it is Maroon, (Qatar's flag is actually described as burnt red) and Maroon is a shade of Red, I knew adding those two in would add some confusion to some, but Red is still Red, even if it is a very very dark shade

The flag of Latvia cannot be considered red, but rather burgundy or reddish-brown (which is a variant of red, but a little darker than the garnet color). The case of Qatar is the same. The coat of arms of Peru only appears on the state flag, so the placement of Peru in the questionnaire can be considered correct. I only disagree with Latvia and Qatar. And really, the flag of Bahrain is red and white.

@Zefyrinus, Maroon is a shade of red, and not brown. 17/17 though, I love flags so not particularly hard.

Not sure I'd call the Qatari flag red, either. Unless purple also counts as a shade of red. But not difficult to guess with the pictures.

purple? Lmao really? or are you just saying that to stir things up. I can sort of see how people would look at it as brown, especially next to bright red (though I am quite sure If you put them in a group with brown things they wóuld call it red) But purple?

Maroon is red mixed with the blue side, not the green (or yellow if you prefer).

Just like purple.

Bottom line: Qatar or Bahrain, get your own unique flag, something that'll upstage the one who doesn't budge first.

MG17, I don’t think the flag of Greenland is considered a national flag, which was what Djilas was talking about. drdavid brought up the Greenland flag as a joke, and Djilas brought up other flags as a joke as well. If you turned out to be joking as well, then I personally don’t get it at all.

Haha, yeah, I was thinking the same thing. These bi-colour flags are pretty unimaginative. Even the tri-colours are so-so.

Easy for kids to draw in school though, eh? Try drawing an accurate maple leaf! Tougher than you think - even for adults!

I get it. Indonesia adopted their flag in 1945, which was around the time of World War II and Poland was in distress......yeah I get it. But Monaco adopted theirs quite a long time before that in 1880. So I don't know how that relates.

The original purpose of flags/banners was to distinguish the armies in a battlefield. Since it's highly unlikely that Monaco and Indonesia are even going to coincide in a battlefield, I think they can get a pass. :P

The 'gray cross' is actually the silver 'George Cross' awarded by King George VI so as to "bear witness to the heroism and devotion of its people" during the prolonged siege by Germany and Italy in WWII.

I'm pretty biased, but you'd think the maple leaf would be a pretty easy one! No other flag in the world has anything too similar on it. Though, to be fair, I guess we're simply not as well-known abroad as the Yanks and the Brits, with whom we are most often associated/mistaken for historical reasons.

you must have taken it when the quiz was just reset, and encountered some skewed statistics. Cause atm canada is at 95% japan at 94% switzerland at 91% and poland at 83% and monaco at 55%.

Level 59
Jan 12, 2018
The quiz is clearly flags that are just red and white, with nothing else on ther flag of any other colour. Malta's flag is certainly predominantly red and white, but you can't ignore the George Cross, which is a different colour.
+1
Level 66
May 2, 2020
Furthermore, the George's cross is not a coat of arms, which would justify the flags precence in this quiz, since it is not nececary, but an honorific address given to all Maltese citicens. In a way Maltese babies are the youngest people to get a non-hereditary honorific address.

Why not England ? England competes at International level as England in many sports and is therefore a sovereign nation.

May 7, 2020
We're not a "proper" country apparently... But I agree, the England flag should count. After all, what colour flag do you see waving around when we play in the World Cup? It's not the red, white and blue Union Jack - it's the red on white cross of St George!

So the key criterion for being a sovereign nation is...defined by having a team in football & rugby?

This is going to revolutionise the field of international jurisprudence.

Level 58
Jan 28, 2022
England is not an independent nation state. It is a constituent country within the United Kingdom. It's a favour based on sporting history that the constituent countries within the UK are able to compete in (some) sports independently.

I really wish this matter could be put to rest. Scotland is not a country, Wales is not a country, Northern Ireland and England are not countries. They are not represented independently at the UN, they do not produce their own passports. After all, why would Scotland have an independence referendum if it was an actual country?

I agree with what's been said, Malta is a "no go" because of the silver in the cross.

But what about often forgotten sovereign country of the "knights of Malta"? Yes they have no formal territory, but they have recognition worldwide, observer status in the UN, issue stamps & coins and even have their own internet extension IP. I vote YES for inclusion into red & white flags, to be a stickler at least in the way the question is currently worded!
