I would also suggest that the flag would be better described as a "flag of an international organisation", as in fact it is not a flag assigned to the specific sport event, but one of the principal insignia of the International Olympic Movement.

Although not the original flag of the Republic of Texas, this flag was adopted in 1839 as the official flag of the Republic. When Texas joined the Union in 1845, this flag became the State flag as well. As to the clueing, Texas is both a sub-national unit and a former country. Kudos to the quizmaster for the curveball

I haven't talked much with Texans about history, but when you walk through Austin or e.g. Dallas Fair Park, they seem to be prowd of the 6 flags. Not sure if it's not just an excuse to wave around the Confederate flag.

@Ithabise...Texas was a separate nation for 10 years (1836-1846). New Mexico never was a nation by itself, it went from Mexico to US Territory to US State.

Ha! (And good response by Jerry!) I am ashamed to say that as a Buddhist of some 30 years, including a teacher and a meditation instructor as well as a FREAKIN' FORMER NUN, sadly I did not get that one. Certainly the batch of vertical colors should have tipped me off, as we use those colors for banners, and, say, prayer flags. This flag is just not really used in my tradition, nor in several others that I'm familiar with. If you wanted to use something that would absolutely be recognized by all Buddhists – and might even help out non-Buddhists who either took a comparative religion class in college or owned one of those "COEXIST" bumper stickers – you could select the flag that had the Wheel of Dharma on it (in Wikipedia under "Buddhist flag" along with the one you did choose). Even if someone had been in retreat since those flags were supposedly standardized, they would instantly know the wheel image: it's as recognizable as a cross to a Christian or a Magen David to a Jew.

No, but if I was taking a quiz made by a German I wouldn't be surprised to see them there, and I'd be happy to learn something new. Over half the people got all the US flags except for NM. Theirs is unique, and anyone who has done much driving in the US has probably seen that symbol on New Mexico's license plates.

Got them all. Picked up NM last but you can tell from the design it's something from the SW USA.

Fun facts: If California and Texas were countries in Europe they would have the 6th and 7th largest GDPs on the continent respectively, between Italy and Spain. You can combine 23 sovereign nations of Europe together and still be about a million shy of the population of California. I don't think it's too unreasonable to know the state flags, particularly when they're so recognizable and not just three indistinct bars of color (usually chosen from only 6 colors)

How are they going to list Texas as a "former country" and California as a "sub-national unit"? California was a republic for three days so if Texas is a former country, so is California... Really I think they should list Texas as a sub-national unit because that's what it is.

California was never an independent state:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_Republic

The name "California Republic" appeared only on the flag the insurgents raised in Sonoma. It indicated their aspiration of forming a republican government for California. The insurgents elected military officers but no civil structure was ever established.
