I believe that Thailand should technically be listed here as Siam. Per some quick research on Wikipedia, it was officially referred to as Siam for all or most of the period you list in the quiz.

Its the flag of the French Monarchy which was obviously used as the flag of the Kingdom of France too. The Fleur de Lis - also features on the royal emblem of the British Monarchy to show its French heritage.

More like their claim to the French throne. English, and then British, monarchs claimed the French throne for centuries, from the 14th century until (stretching my knowledge now) the early 19th century.

It was pretty iconic in its own way...even back when I didn't know that many flags, I always remembered Libya...it was so simple and easy to remember. "The all green one."

Go into JoAnn's Fabrics and ask for half a yard of green and you too can fly the flag of Libya.
